Meet The 29-Year old Black Entrepreneur Who was Abandoned at Birth Now Owns One of the Top Telecom Firm in U.S.

The founder and CEO of Figgers Wireless, a telecom company with an approximate worth of $62.3 million is just 29 years old. His name is Freddie Figgers, and he was abandoned in a trash receptacle immediately after he was born. Two caring parents adopted him while he was just two days old.

While he was nine years old, he bought his first PC, unfortunately, or fortunately, the computer was broken when it got to him. This marked the beginning of his innovative journey into the telecommunication world. He was able to figure out how to make the PC functional again. A few years later, while still a child, he developed a shoe that had a GPS tracker and a two-way communicator for his dad after he discovered his father had Alzheimer’s. He later sold the device for millions.

By age 12, he got his first job as a computer technician, and three years later, he launched his cloud computing service.
Freddie became the youngest person to hold an FCC license, which enabled him to start his mobile phone company. That company is what is known today as Figgers Wireless, which to date remains the only Black-American telecom firm in the United States of America that produces its 4G LTE smartphone (5G VLOTE smartphones on its way) along with their data, text and talk plans. Their cellular service is available all over the U.S.

Figgers also have other products and brands such as a wireless earbud (the best in the industry), the earbud enables you to communicate with anyone from any part of the world because it has a translation function. It also has its credit and debit card line FiggCash, that offers premium luxury titanium metal card for all credit types produced via Master and Visa Card. Also, there is Figgers Health, which has an array of unique healthcare products. Finally, we have the Figgers Foundation; this line gives back to the community by providing relief support to victims of disasters and an annual scholarship.
