A serial entrepreneur and internationally recognized expert in Agile Software development, Luke’s last company, Conteneo, was an enterprise collaboration software company that helped large enterprises administer more than $3B using Participatory Budgeting techniques. Conteneo was acquired by Scaled Agile, Inc. in 2019. Luke has made key contributions to the SAFe APD and LPM competencies and contributed to the development of the SAFe POPM, APM, and LPM courses.

In this talk I will present how we are using the Portfolio Configuration of SAFe to create Tilliden, a new fintech focused on creating financial literate children capable of transforming their communities as they become financially independent adults through creativity, communication, critical thinking and collaboration. The lessons learned are applicable to organizations of any size, including organizations who seek to accelerate innovation in Horizon 3 of their LPM portfolio.
