“We aim to shift the perception that news apps are only relevant to avid news readers by creating a more enjoyable, pain-free news reading habit for people of all age groups,” says Lumi News Malaysia CEO Judith Yeoh.
The app was intentionally designed and presented to be inclusive of all Malaysians, regardless of their worldview. Indeed, they believe that by having multiple sources in the same place, it can lead to more cultural understanding.
“We want to build a better news app that everyone will need and want in their daily lives; the app they can’t live without; the app they need to know what everybody’s reading or saying. The app that illuminates their mind.”
The Lumi founding team comprises of five people, namely Judith, tech lead Chan Hau Jie, design lead Rachel Anyi, product & content manager Tang Ruxyn, and app developer Chan Weng Keit.
