Moovn

Godwin Gabriel, a Tanzanian-American, started the ride-sharing app, Moovn, with the mission of economically empowering our communities and changing lives. Similar to Uber, Moovn allows you to request on-demand transportation services. However, Moovn allows you to schedule rides up to a month in advance. Moovn operates in seven U.S. cities, Vancouver, CA, three African nations, and Dubai.

Ujama

Ujama, meaning “extended family” or “brotherhood” is an app that every traveling parent needs. You can discover other parents in your area and easily coordinate carpools, playdates, and babysitting appointments. You can also chat with other parents within the app and get recommendations on family-friendly sites and activities in the area.

Capway

You can get started now with Capway, an online banking and financial literacy app, that aims to help people with their financial needs and goals. Meaning, you can finally get started with that travel savings account.
