A once-in-a-generation shift in the underlying infrastructure powering financial institutions is underway.

Illuminate invests in founders who have built solutions that we believe will become key components powering financial services firms.

We look for teams and businesses that are world class with some demonstration of enterprise product-market-fit.

We will only invest if we believe we can make a meaningful positive difference to the company’s outcome.

We are long term partners and strive to be the hardest working investor in the cap table.
