Having built essential industry investment/deal guides called “LUMAscapes,” visual presentations of interrelated businesses in the media, marketing and adtech industries, investment bank LUMA Partners has introduced the Black LUMAscape, a diagram and directory that charts scores of Black-owned and founded businesses.
We spoke with LUMA founder and CEO Terry Kawaja about the new effort and his hopes that it drives more investment to these businesses.
He told us that the reaction to the new project has been extremely positive and that a major advertising agency is using the resource to actively engage with companies on the list.
More on the new effort reported in the Wall Street Journal.
The list of companies on the list can be found here.
