Here's what to know about LumiQ


LumiQ is an audio-first professional education platform for CPAs that helps CPAs obtain continuing professional development (CPD) hours through interesting podcasts with business leaders (such as the CFOs of Slack, Shopify, Yelp, Yahoo!, TD Bank, and Wealthsimple, to name a few). 

Unfortunately, the annual learning requirement known as CPD/CPE is hated by most CPAs. They're tired of attending dull webinars, reading irrelevant material, and using outdated products. They have flocked to LumiQ and our goal of making professional learning enjoyable because of this.

LumiQ is on the verge of launching a global movement that will fundamentally change the professional education and podcasting industries, with hundreds of companies already signed up. 

Following their recent Series A, they have expanded into the US market and are seeing great early signs of traction. However, LumiQ tends not to adhere to the maxim "move fast and break things" despite her explosive growth.

Instead, They want to create a successful business where customers recognize the product's worth, genuinely enjoy using it, and where their employees can develop professionally. If this appeals to you, they hope you will consider partnering with them as they embark on a mission to transform professional education!
