The Fledge

Greenwood District Studios is proud to announce The Fledge as the first of our highlighted local businesses.

If you’ve been around Lansing over the past couple of years, unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you have probably heard of The Fledge. To humor those who are not in-the-know or finding our website from outside Lansing, The Fledge is a business incubator, accelerator, maker space, community center and much more. If you you ask ten different people what is special about the Fledge, you will get at least 10 different answers.

When COVID hit, like many other local businesses The Fledge had to pivot. While not open to the public the way they once were, they are still providing weekday online entrepreneurship meetings, a weekly pitch competition, a food bank and a clothing bank to the community.

At the heart of the Fledge is Jerry Norris. Jerry is a very approachable individual and has provided a huge amount of services including mentoring to our community. Partnered with Jerry is his wife Shannon and an extended team of Fledglings that all help make The Fledge the special place it is.
