In February 2021, our CEO, Stefanie Wilson, was tagged in a LinkedIn post which suggested that Luminair should tender for the Boosting Female Founders Initiative. The decision for Luminair to tender and assist other female founders was instantaneous.
"In 2015, i started Luminair as a solo female founder....however due to the support of industry, mentors and a number of inspirational champions, I never felt alone" Stefanie recalled of her own journey with Luminair.
"Imagine my elation when Luminair was appointed to the panel of expert mentors by the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources as part of the Boosting Female Founders Initiative. What a full-circle and a great opportunity to give-back!" Stefanie commented.
Luminair's appointment has been confirmed up until 2023; and fits with the CEO's ethos of using business as a vehicle for change. Further information on the female founders program is available here.
