FledgeWing was an online community aimed at entrepreneurial university students launched in February 2009. Founded by twoNYU Stern students in October 2007, the site supported 325 universities worldwide. Having no costs or advertising, the social network aimed to connect aspiring student entrepreneurs with one another as well as with mentors, investors, and industry professionals. In February 2010, FledgeWing India, an all-Hindi version of the site, was launched at FledgeWing.in. After nearly six years, the platform shut down in May 2013.
Students could sign up directly to the site with their academic e-mail address while mentors needed to be invited or request access.
