Why “LightCastle”?

Our company name was inspired by the son of two of LightCastle’s founders, who after one summer getaway (that included the New Point Lighthouse on the Chesapeake Bay) independently conjured up the concept of the LightCastle: part church, castle, and lighthouse.

A LightCastle.

The idea of a LightCastle really sparks our imagination—it’s a place where ideas are born and ventures are manifest. It’s where we do our best work. We hope you’ll join us there.
