29-year old Freddie Figgers was abandoned in a dumpster at birth and was adopted when he was just two days old by two loving parents. He is now the founder and CEO of Figgers Wireless, a black owned telecommunications firm valued at over $62.3 million dollars, that you may have never heard of.
Freddie got his first computer when he was 9-years old. It was broken when he received it, but he quickly figured out how to make it fully operational. That was the start of his innovative future. Later as a child, after learning that his Dad had Alzheimer's, he invented a shoe for him that had a GPS tracker and a two-way communicator that he sold for millions.
He got his first job at the age of 12 as a computer technician, and by age 15, he had already started his own cloud computing services.
