Lume Cube experienced humble beginnings in a garage like most start ups.. But it's the story of the evolution from garage to present day that hopefully inspires and clues you in on who exactly Lume Cube is. Each year brings new growth and it is all thanks to our passionate team and even more passionate customers. Take a journey through time as we walk you through the Lume Cube timeline from the day the company was founded, to where we are today:

2014: Lume Cube launches first Kickstarter

Back in 2014, Lume Cube noticed a hole in the photo/video market: Lighting that adapted to the portability, versatility, and consumer friendliness that other content capturing devices embodied. After navigating the tricky water so developing a product form scratch, Lume Cube stepped out into the limelight on Kickstarter. Offering pre-orders to anyone who'd cough up $59 to fund the project and bring it to life.

30 days, 1,600+ backers, and $229,517 later, Lume Cube was funded and off to the races!

One year later, Lume Cube was thriving with distribution worldwide and customers in 70+ countries.
