Luminr shortlisted for the BIMA Awards 2023

Written By Otilia Crizbasan | 4 October, 2023

We are excited to share that our platform has been shortlisted for this year’s BIMA Awards in the Trailblazers category

This achievement became possible alongside our amazing team who put all their talent and dedication into their work for Luminr – the AI-powered lens to the entire searchable web.

BIMA’s Trailblazers category was created for disruptors, so far ahead of their time that the full impact of the work might be years away. The judges were looking for totally fresh and innovative ideas from those with bravery and determination to launch something different in the market. 

Why did we enter the BIMA Awards?

The landscape of online search has rapidly evolved over the last few years. 

And search is now everywhere. Over 60% of US online shoppers start their product search on Amazon. According to Hubspot’s 2022 State of U.S. Consumer Trends Report 50% of millennials and 57% of Gen Z had discovered a new product on social media in three months prior to the survey. 

We believe that Luminr embodies the very spirit of the Trailblazers award, by shifting the focus from traditional search engines to emerging channels such as TikTok, Amazon, TripAdvisor, and ChatGPT, consolidating the entire search results spectrum into a unified interface.

We’ve entered the award out of a firm conviction that our platform stands unrivaled in empowering brands to understand the market, their performance within it, and to get ahead of the competition. And we couldn’t miss the chance to celebrate our innovative team who worked hard to make this possible.

What does being shortlisted mean to us?

We’re committed to helping brands measure their influence, visibility, and attention across the entire searchable landscape.

Being shortlisted for this award is a testament that through our disruptive vision and innovative technology, we’re not just changing the search game – we’re redefining it, setting a new benchmark for digital search intelligence.

This nomination brings us a step closer to our goal of setting a new standard for the industry and becoming the globally trusted marketing intelligence and AI platform that promises to evolve as fast as the search landscape.

James Wolman, Head of Innovation at Luminr adds: “It’s truly rewarding to be recognised for our innovative spirit, as that’s the cornerstone upon which Luminr was founded and remains a significant key value for us. 

The advantage of having a small, agile team is that it places us in a prime position to develop a product that’s forward-thinking and ahead of its curve.”

We’re incredibly excited to be recognised alongside such an incredible lineup of companies from across the sector and we couldn’t be prouder of our amazing team and their tireless dedication.

Final thoughts

Right now, all we can say is that we hope we will continue to have our work recognised and bring the trophy home – fingers crossed for that! 

We can’t wait to find out the results, but until then, we remain the beacon of the search space, transforming raw, channel-fragmented data into decisive AI-powered insights.
