Ed. Note: we had a chance to chat with Rich Edwards of Repairly, a very cool Techstars startup based in the UK. Read on! :)
How did you come up with the idea for Repairly? What was the inspiration?
Both myself and CEO Fraser Williams have had experience in similar business models before. We saw that there was a huge problem in this industry.
When you break your technology, there’s a confusing amount of options. From slow manufacturers to untrustworthy high street shops, there’s no one company that you can turn to if you need to get something fixed. Technology has progressed at such a fast rate that the repair and support side of it has been left in the 90’s. Repairly is here to support people.
