I'm often asked where the idea for Lumenz came from. In the 90s I was in the United States and headed up an advanced technology group. We were exploring new ways to transfer knowledge. We were building a system that helped to pass unique expertise from five brilliant engineers, ages 62 to 75 years, on to young engineers. This is when the idea was formed to build a system that shares high-quality video clips from experts and automatically links them in a way to best help people learn. In cooperation with a leading university, we built this system and presented it to the young engineers. Wow, what a success that was back then. They wanted more of it - more videos, more knowledge, more experts - anytime, anywhere. Well it was the 90s: barely any Internet, sharing videos worldwide over the Internet was impossible, and we had no technology to optimize video production and automate indexing of video clips. We simply could not meet the demand at the time but the young engineers nevertheless kept on using the system for years.
The seed was planted. We wanted to create a solution for everybody, to make the best knowledge about all topics accessible to all people. Finally, in 2010 the time was right for a new way of spreading knowledge: video had become the medium for young people and increasingly everybody, the bandwidth for data transfer has increased enormously, also usage via mobile devices, opens the door for consumption on the go even further, and there is a demographic shift taking place over the coming years that promotes the need for a new knowledge solution: we will have the most young people in the workplace while more experts retire than ever.
We had to, of course, ask the best experts and customers for advice to find out if the idea was important enough to make a business out of it. The answer was a resounding 'YES'! Since then, we are on a mission to simplify the way people find knowledge. We've grown rapidly, brought on a hugely talented team to shape and execute our plan, secured funding from the most noted investors and are delivering value to businesses and consumers every day around the world.
