Airspace Apertures is an aerial photography and videography business that uses drone technology to achieve the best quality for their customers. The business was founded by three 11th grade students, Olivia Held, Gabriel Howland, and Olle Wurtzel. Airspace Apertures sprouted from their shared interest in drones and motivation from the Entrepreneurship course they all took at The New School of Atlanta. But, most importantly, they saw a problem with the aerial photography business, and set out to help fix it.
The current aerial photography industry is very expensive, and not readily available to the public, hiding all the potential it has to grow in different industries. They created a unique pricing plan that is lower than competitor prices, and still sustainable for a growing business. They are able to do this because drone photography does not have many expenses outside of marketing and new drone technology. Airspace Apertures is working to spread and grow their business through good word of mouth and social media, so a lot of the expense is diminished. Additionally, their local nature allows them to make better connections with their customers, and help spread positive word of mouth.
The business was built to stand out like the young entrepreneurs who created it. Olle Wurtzel left the business to pursue his own separate startup, but is still in full support of Airspace Apertures and has ample say in its development. Gabe Howland and Olivia Held are still part of the company and working their hardest to help it grow. Olivia is a 17 year old student at the New School of Atlanta, and gained an interest in drone technology in her 10th grade year through a community outlook program in school. She has worked to grow her knowledge in the field since then, and teaches her school’s drone club alongside Gabe in addition to running Airspace Apertures. Gabe joined the drone club out of pure curiosity, and wanted to pursue it further than just a hobby. He got his license at the end of 2019, and has spent time since working hard to get his peers licensed.
Airspace Apertures is requesting $300 in funding. The majority of it will be to register a domain for a year, and to launch their website on wix.com. The price of the website launch for a year is $272. Airspace Apertures also wants to utilize the rest of the money for camera filters for the Phantom 3 Pro. There are three filters on Amazon for $22. We hope that these funds will help us expand to serve more people. Having a website and domain will let us to obtain potential client emails as well. One of our goals is to get 10 new clients, and being able to direct potential clients to a website will help us expand our reach to other people.
