Meet Lewis Latimer
Lewis Latimer was a self-taught African-American inventor and electrical pioneer born to fugitive slaves. Over the course of his career as a draftsman, Latimer worked closely with Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell to help design and patent the light bulb and telephone.
“It is rare that you meet someone and, after an hour, you are glad this person came into your life both professionally and personally. Luke’s vision and passion shine through, as does his persistence in making things happen. After I met him, I knew I needed to soak up as much of his entrepreneurial spirit and intellect as I could.”
Angie Huggins Breedlove - Vice President of Retail, Assurant
It's hard to explain exactly how instrumental Luke has been to me personally on my journey of building AI Squared. I come from a low income family in the inner-city of the murder capital of Florida where I faced many socio-economic challenges. Moreover, I did not want to become a product of my environment where most people ended up in jail, prison or dead. He's an entrepreneur that's not only been through similar challenges, but also shares our values because he comes from the same place I do and has used grit, will, and passion to win at every level.
