Texas Christian University senior Daniel Castenada wants to cut down long wait times that have become the norm for some tech repair shops.
Through his startup FlyFix, he offers on-demand tech repairs and is a self-described “Uber” of phone repairs, according to FWinc.
“We aim to create convenience and time efficiency, so we try to get it done within the hour.”
The new Fort Worth company launched in September and not only offers repairs but recycles, refurbishes, and resells preowned devices.
“We aim to create convenience and time efficiency, so we try to get it done within the hour,” Castenada told the Fort Worth business magazine.
FlyFix gives customers the option to have repairs done anytime and anywhere rather than having to go to a repair shop for the work, according to its website. Repairs can range from broken screens and unlocking services to battery and charging issues.
The company is currently raising a seed round of funding and hopes to reach $1.5 million by December, according to FWinc.
