About LuminAID

Ann and Andrea, co-founders on Sharktank.

Anna and Andrea pitch to the “Sharks” on ABC’s Shark Tank

LuminAID co-founders Anna Stork and Andrea Sreshta invented inflatable solar lighting technology as graduate design students in 2010. It was just after the earthquake in Haiti and they saught to invent something that could help those lacking access to electricity have a safe, sustainable source of lighting that could be easily distributed in large volumes.

 

LuminAID has since grown to distribute its products in a variety of channels. In addition to humanitarian aid, LuminAID lights and phone chargers are available in retailers including REI and Home Depot. LuminAID was featured on ABC’s show Shark Tank in 2015 and secured an investment deal from Mark Cuban. The company has received additional awards including the Toyota Mothers of Invention Grant at Women in the World and was an exhibitor at the first ever Maker Faire at the White House in 2015.  

 

Anna and Andrea continue to manage and run the company today.
