About us

We’ve been in your shoes, and we’d like to help you accelerate your growth

Luno Expeditions teamAlexa from YourJuno with Luno Expeditions team

Why we are here?

We believe that the existing financial system is no longer fit for purpose, and that there is an opportunity to completely reinvent the way money works.

This in turn will have an enormous, positive impact on billions of people’s lives. But there is a lot to do, and we can’t do it ourselves.

Riya explaining with hand gestures

We realise there are many exceptional founders from all over the world, all on different journeys but ultimately working towards the same end goal:

To help build this new, better financial system.

And we're here to support you on your journey.
