The hardware platform for the 21st century
More than 21,000 orders shipped to Tindarians
Over 4,000 products listed on Tindie
Tindarians are in over 96 countries around the world
The inspiration for Tindie started on a post by our founder Emile Petrone on Reddit.
From day one we've had orders come in, and we haven't looked back since! Fun fact, that first day we had orders from the US & Germany.
We quickly spread across the globe, but it was lucky Peru that came in at #25!
From launch to 1,000 orders in less than 7 months! Funny how busy that felt way back then. If only we knew what rest of 2013 had in store...
One of the many fun parts about Tindie is that there is a growing excitement around indie electronics - and it is happening globably. Malaysia was lucky #50, and we couldn't be happier!
We can't plan when a new invention will pop up on the site, but the team was fortunate that product #1000 came on July 11, 2013. We were so proud!
After taking 7 months to reach order #1,000, order #10,000 came a fast and furious 14 months later. Another 9,000 orders in only 2x the time. 2014 is going to be one busy year!
Tindie was invited to the first ever White House Maker Faire! A once in a lifetime experience that we were honored to attend.
NASA requested their order be shipped to the international space station. Tindie obliged. Just kidding :)
A few images from events we've attended with other makers all over the world.

He officially launched Tindie in June 2012. Before Tindie he was an engineer at SimpleGeo (acquired by Urban Airship), worked in sales at Yelp and Red Beacon (acquired by Home Depot).
