We run Wooting with modern practices, open communication and transparency. At its core, it’s you with us challenging the industry and making impactful products. That’s why we crowdfunded our first product, the Wooting one, and keep the community at heart.

Currently, our mission is to make analog keyboards an industry standard. We strongly believe it's the next step and are doing our best to support further developments within the field.
