Capital One Acquires Lux eCommerce Company

Big news from the (literal) purpose.jobs fam. Our brother('s) company was just acquired by Capital One!

Let us explain...

Our founder, Ryan Landau, has a really cool brother, Andrew Landau. Andrew has made awesome strides across the Detroit startup and entrepreneurial community, including the acquisition of his latest company, Jewel
