Strengthening Relationships
between Good People and Great Causes

Lightful was born out of a determination to bring innovation to the sector that deserves it the most: the beyond-profit sector. We believe that technology can help to build more meaningful, impactful and delightful relationships.

The internet is a busy place, our newsfeeds today are clogged up with a lot noise, some good and some not so good. We want to help amplify the voices of all the great causes.

Our platform is our flagship product, we also have two other parts of the business that help us achieve our purpose and better serve the beyond-profit sector.

Vinay Nair

CEO & Co-Founder

Vinay started out in his career as an Executive Director at the investment bank JPMorgan. He then spent eight years in a variety of leadership roles in the charity and social impact investment sector, with Acumen Fund, the Clinton Foundation and Social & Sustainable Capital (SASC). He has started two social enterprises, one in the UK and the other making jam with HIV positive women in Mozambique. He actually has that smile all day, unless Man Utd have lost.

Johnny Murnane

COO & Co-Founder

Johnny spent five years as a management consultant in New York, before returning home and taking up a leadership position with Bank of Ireland. He has volunteered for charities all through his educational and working career and in 2012 made his passion his career. He is a frequent visitor to Sierra Leone, where he has run a marathon, got married, and funded a school.

Carlos Miranda

Chairman & Co-Founder

Carlos is an entrepreneur passionate about business with purpose. He splits his time between Lightful and two other ventures he founded: I.G. Advisors and Social Misfits Media. His work focuses on helping organisations scale their social impact by providing strategic advice and helping clients make better use of technology. He's a huge sci-fi geek, but failed to convince his wife of the benefits of naming their boy-girl twins Luke and Leia.
