Before Vivint, Luke worked as a product manager at Zynga, where he led data analysis and feature development for top social games with tens of millions of players, including Café World, Bingo, and The Ville. He began his career in strategy consulting at Innosight, a firm founded by HBS Professor and world-renowned innovation thinker Clayton Christensen, where he helped Fortune 100 companies develop new businesses and take innovative products to market. Two of the projects he worked on won Gold Edison Awards: General Motors’ Chevrolet Volt and Medtronic’s Healthy Heart for All cardiac health initiative.

Team Featured in
I truly felt that Fortuna went above and beyond what was promised; they were generous with their time, their network, their advice, and their experience. I would consider them more than coaches, but friends, and recommend the Fortuna team 100%, wholeheartedly!

Still can’t believe it, I got in at INSEAD! Fortuna’s advice was invaluable in helping me craft my application. With timely and thorough feedback, I was able to draw upon the right experiences that allowed me to put my best foot forward. I would highly recommend this experience to any prospective applicants.

You have first-hand knowledge of the admissions process (and not in a secondary role as many others) and can leverage that experience.
You are also a fun team to work with. Working for months on your applications can be stressful so this makes a difference.

Working with Fortuna is like having Warren Buffett as your personal financial advisor.
D.B., London – Admitted to HBS
I have been admitted to Stanford! This would never have been possible without your help. Beyond helping me correct the structure of the essays you helped me push my thinking especially on the ‘what matters most to me’ question.
