Digitising business cards using near-field communication (NFC) technology

Sina Sadrzadeh has been winning awards, hosting top-rated podcasts and appearing on Sky Sports, all while founding his business, Wing

It started when Sina realised that the face-to-face networking world was being left behind, especially with the use of paper business cards. As he explained, 80 percent of business cards are thrown away within a week – Wing eliminates that single-use paper waste by digitising the entire process.

Wing plasma-engraves your name, job title and business logo to a stainless-steel business card. It then utilises the latest near-field communication (NFC) technology to allow you to add contact details into someone’s phone with the tap of a card or sticker. There are now hundreds of business owners using the Wing Card and Wing Button around the world. 

Having applied for the Young Innovators Awards three times, Sina is delighted to have made the cut:

“The mentorship and community aspect of the programme were really attractive. I would love to learn from my fellow Award winners and mentors about how to expand further into B2B, and build products and software that individuals love using.”
