Luminate recently won the innovation prize at Tanabata Pitch Competition, standing out from 31 participants. The event aims to help startups reach out to enterprise partners in Japan.
I represented Luminate in the competition and also drove the demo session in the exposition booth. It was amazing experience, especially for a summer intern. I was really proud to have such an exciting product to present.
As the first intern at Luminate, I was given a lot of freedom and flexibility to design my project. My project was to drive Luminate’s internationalization initiatives by pitching new products to executives, understanding the market dynamic, designing innovative partnership ideas, and collecting resources for execution.
It was an amazing experience to be with a company as it was growing so fast. I also enjoyed fun at the famous Luminate Tiki Bar, Friday wine drinking, birthday parties, and even a baby shower. Luminate made my summer unforgettable.
