Yanir Yakutiel


CEO and founder

Yanir began Lumi with one major goal in mind: to help Australian small businesses flourish by offering fast, flexible and fully transparent loans.

Having been involved with SME financing for the last 4 years, Yanir recognised the opportunity to use the power of data and analytics to create a market-leading, customer-focused small business lender that truly solves the lack of access to capital that is an existential problem for Australian small business owners, so he launched Lumi in August 2018. 

Prior to that, Yanir has had a background in logistics, finance and law and has worked in corporations spanning the UK, Italy, Israel before setting up shop in Australia.
