At the heart of Luminari is the idea of the Ripple E ect. We want our programs to not only inspire the participants. We want to inspire the participants to spread what they have learned, like ripple e ect, across their community and the world. It is the eff ect you get when you throw a stone in water. You get to see where it starts but it is even more exciting to see how far the ripple eff ect will go. We achieve this ripple eff ect through uncompromising reach towards excellence in curriculum design, intensity of programming, fantastic instructors and a truly diverse composition of our participants. This is how Luminari makes the most of its modest means to ensure enormous impact in the long term.
