Adafruit is one of the fastest growing private companies in the US. The company, founded by MIT engineer Limor “Ladyada” Fried, was created as the best place for Do It Yourself electronics online. Very quickly they lived up to their goal and attracted enthusiasts from around the world. Today, they have hundreds of educational videos and lessons and sell thousands of different components and kits for people of all skill levels. They’ve grown to reach over 11,000,000 (yes, that’s 11 million) page views, 2 million of them unique, every month.
If you’re the type who takes apart your remote control, video game systems, or computers in order to see how they work, then you definitely need to check out Adafruit. They have plenty of cool things for you to work on, like DIY VR goggles, a portable game console, and Raspberry Pi products. It doesn’t matter if you’re an enthusiast or a curious newcomer, they have something for you! There’s a reason they’ve been featured by Newsweek, Popular Mechanics, NPR, and more.
Adafruit has been with ServInt since 2012. Timor told us a little bit about their time with us, saying, “If you really want to talk about ‘scaling’ – Adafruit went from $187,000 in revenue in 2006 to $33m in revenue in 2014, we are not slowing down. Servint has allowed us to grow our store, our learning system, and a popular site – they’ve had something to fit our needs for every stage of our company. Servint’s dedicated 24/7/365 support and offerings are why we’ve been with them for every single year of Adafruit’s rapid growth!”
