B. Riley Farber Announces Investment in Luminari

The two companies build on their strategic partnership

Subsequent to the announcement of a strategic partnership with Luminari in 2018, B. Riley Farber is pleased to advise of our investment in this Toronto-based tech start-up—the largest online community of CPAs and CPA candidates across the country.

We’ve known the Luminari team for a few years now, and from the moment they shared their vision, we knew there was the potential for a strong working relationship. Fast forward to today and not only are we finding ways to collaborate, but we are now proudly invested—literally and figuratively.

As with all of our business relationships, we look beyond the numbers and this is no different. Aside from their high growth potential, Luminari boasts an exceptional team of professionals with a clear goal—helping CPAs drive their careers forward.

We believe their next initiative will be their biggest one yet. LumiQ is an innovative podcast platform featuring interesting and relevant conversations with business leaders that count as verified CPD. The way people learn is rapidly changing, and by providing CPD in a unique and enjoyable way, Luminari is poised to disrupt a segment of our industry that sorely needs it.

From their ever so casual start-up attire to their relentless passion and clever marketing tactics (those delicious branded cookies!), both Michael Kravshik and Adam Bercovici have instilled confidence with their leadership, hard work, and determination. They pinpointed a pressing need within the CPA community and filled that gap.

We are incredibly proud to be aligned with such a forward-thinking organization, and it’s safe to say they are just getting started.
