Who We Are

At Luminovo, we're on a mission to accelerate technological progress.

Our two founders met at Stanford University and started our journey as an AI consulting firm helping European businesses develop more intelligent software. Our clients included Volkswagen, Daimler, Infineon, Linde, P7S1 and more. Today, our sole focus is on using our talents to build more collaborative, data-driven and automated software in the electronics industry, bringing the technical innovations of tomorrow to life.

The name Luminovo (“new light”) is a play on the famous quote by our machine learning professor Andrew Ng: “AI is the new electricity.” With this as our motto, we strive to bring new light to the established processes for manufacturing and designing electronic products.

Our current team is made up of electrical engineers, data scientists, software engineers, machine learning experts, product enthusiasts and business talents from all around the world.
