The Opportunity

Company Description

It all started a little over a year ago, in 2020, with an idea, a dream and a love of birds. Bird Buddy is so much more than a smart bird feeder. It’s about building a brand and a company, about reconnecting people with nature. Of course, we need that beautiful piece of hardware that people would love to have in their yard, but it is the (re)connecting with nature and bringing joy into the lives of people all over the world that makes us get up in the morning.
