Airfordable, a Chicago-based, black-owned startup, is making it easier to afford flights so that you can go on a trip without having to pay a huge lump sum.

The startup allows you to pay for your trip in more affordable installments by submitted a picture of your itinerary and travel plans, and after an initial deposit, you can make payments up to your departure date.

Cofounder and CEO Ama Marfo, a Ghana native, said that she was inspired to create the startup while she was attending Drexel University in Philadelphia.

“We have a lot of students using Airfordable to travel home or for study abroad programs. While other users are planning travel based around life milestones such as destination weddings and family vacations. We are covering just about any travel need you can think of,” Marfo said.

Flying is expensive… Seems like a great idea for college students. This can be a good service for people with bad credit and want to travel. The fees might be high, but travel might be the one thing that is worth it. I hope it succeeds. 

Black buying power will reach $1.3 trillion in the next few years, I hope that money will be spent at black-owned businesses.

Kenyan firm blazes the trail in VR Content creation 

Brian Afande, Michael Ilako and Dan Nduati formed the company one-and-a-half years ago after  identifying a niche in the ultra-competitive marketing and advertising sector which has always been on the lookout for new ideas.
Mr Afande previously worked as a brand manager for apparel firm Converse for six years, while Mr Ilako is a trained film director making documentaries.

Mr Nduati handles Blackrhino’s business strategy and development, on top of his work as the managing director of creative agency Brand 2D.

The three partners started the company with a capital of Sh3.5 million, majority of which went towards purchase of specialist cameras and back office support computers. They now have five employees working in video shooting, editing and marketing.

“VR is an expensive venture to get into, but luckily we were able to raise capital for the business and now we are one of the few companies in Africa venturing into cinematic VR. There is an uptake for this business from corporates because it is a unique form of communication, especially as a marketing tool,” said Mr Afande in an interview with the Business Daily.

Donald Trump’s spokesman has declared that Trump will keep tweeting as POTUS because Trump tweets “get results” (they don’t)

In recent weeks, the press has speculated that Donald Trump would have to tone down his presence on Twitter once he takes office. This week, we learned from the horse’s mouth that the opposite may be true.
