Early traction with schools but now doubling down on B2B corporate strategy

Today it's become really difficult to differentiate between the thousands of graduates who apply to us. They have great degrees but they're missing real-world skills. Lumi is the way to help us pick them out.

- Sr. Partner at A Big Four Accounting Firm

Kosmo Kalliarekos, A Global EdTech Leader & Lumi investor

Lumi is shifting the needle from assessment to skills and promoting peer based learning, It's strength lies in augmenting rather trying to upend education

-Headmaster of a Leading British School

It is immensely encouraging that young people can come up with such well thought out solutions to complex global problems when given an opportunity through Lumi

An Education & Skills Leader at a top professional services firm

There is a gap in the market to develop digital skills in young people from an early age. The Passport can be a new age credential for many young people from anywhere

- Mark Brayton, Interim CMO Nationwide

We’re proud to be the first corporate partner to work with Lumi– an organisation giving opportunity for youth to be front and centre in tackling the most important global issues.

- Cyber expert from a Big Four Accounting Firm

I really enjoyed observing how ideas in both apprentice teams evolved session after session. A project like this shows that cooperation centered around design thinking is simply very productive.
