When we think of our most basic human needs, we often think of food, water, and shelter.
When architecture graduate students Anna Stork and Andrea Sreshta were asked to design a product to assist post-earthquake relief efforts in Haiti, they considered the dangerous conditions at night in the tent cities and turned their attention to another critical need: Light.
Now everyone’s getting the bright idea: hikers and emergency workers in Nepal alike use luminAID to light their way. The reality investment show ABC’s Shark Tank saw the luminAID vision irresistible and invited Anna and Andrea on the show to premiere their product on primetime. They made a deal with Mark Cuban.
