What our people say

"I was drawn to Luminate by their investment philosophy in civic tech – it was an opportunity to shape an emerging field. I now have the privilege of working alongside entrepreneurs dedicating their lives to improving the world – it’s inspiring on a daily basis. For me, there has never been a more urgent time to join an organisation working to build just and fair societies.”

Alissa Black

"The work we do here matters. It’s deeply rewarding to invest in people and their ideas – turning bold missions into sustainable change. I was initially attracted by Luminate’s constructive process, particularly the emphasis on civic participation and asking the right questions. It showed a deliberate effort to empower people at a grassroots level. My role gives me a lot of latitude. I’m empowered to find innovative ways to invest.”

Stan Getui

"Luminate really benefits from its presence in the regions it’s working in. Local teams are empowered to develop strategy and execution plans, leading to more effective results. One of the best parts of my job is exploring emerging topics in Central and Eastern Europe including civic technology and digital rights. I also really enjoy showcasing and championing the region’s talents worldwide. Luminate is devoted to the principles of diversity and inclusion and is a great place to grow – both personally and as part of a team.”
