The product history
MIT engineer Limor Fried launched the company in 2005. By 2010 it had already developed into an organisation with seven-figure sales. Since 2010, the company has been based in New York City.
The product name is developed from Fried’s online nickname “Ladyada” and is a tribute to Ada Lovelace – one of the early pioneers of computer science.
All products in the range are personally selected, tested and approved by Limor Fried before they are put on the market.
