Our guest, Anne-Fleur Andrle, is the co-founder of Jack and Ferdi, a companion application that helps travelers identify what's most authentic about a destination while offering innovative ways to the user to give back to the local community.
This Bleisure App also provides data on opportunities to have a positive impact while on the road (run and walk itineraries, indigenous music, and curated local charities to give back to), while not forgetting the primary reason for the business trip...conducting business. The app also offers data on local business etiquette, learning opportunities, and great work/meeting spaces. This well-rounded app will help business travelers combine business and leisure travel and adopt the growing bleisure travel lifestyle.
Anne-Fleur graduated from UTC – a French University - as an engineer with a double major in biomechanics and scientific communication. She pursued her education at the State University of New York (SUNY) in Buffalo with a focus on cardiac regeneration and biomedical engineering. And she was the first woman to graduate from the Biomedical Engineering department of the Graduate School.
A Dual citizen of France and America, Anne-Fleur never misses an opportunity to explore the world - starting with her own neighborhood.
A newborn baby and a newborn business - this is an exciting startup story!

Anne-Fleur Andrle Bio
French born and coming from Brittany, I am a bold female entrepreneur and living an extraordinary life. Extraordinary does not mean rich, luxurious or doing nothing but drinking mojitos on an exotic beach. In my book, extraordinary means daring to live life the way I intend to, which means being free and humble, ambitious and bold, respectful of my peers and environment as well as curious to learn anytime I have the opportunity.
I am convinced it is our responsibility as entrepreneurs to give back to our community and for social impact to be deeply rooted in the DNA of our enterprises. This is one of the reasons why we incorporated Jack and Ferdi as a PBC (Public Benefit Corporation).
