LuminAid was founded in 2010, when then architecture graduate students Anna Stork and Andrea Shesta, were asked to design a product to help aid relief efforts after the devastating earthquake in Haiti. While much of the focus at the time was on food, water and shelter, Anna and Andrea considered the dangerous conditions in the tent cities at night, and developed their portable, inflatable, solar powered lanterns that would eventually provide light worldwide for those in need.

Not only have LuminAID products aided post-disaster relief efforts in over 70 countries, but they are now commonly used by hikers, backpackers, campers, and by families at home and in the car. Even the reality investment show ABC’s Shark Tank saw the LuminAID vision irresistible, and invited Anna and Andrea on the show, where they received offers from all five Sharks!
