Warby Parker Co-Founders and Co-CEOS Neil Blumenthal and Dave Gilboa | Talks at GS

By Rachel Cole | Investment Analyst at NAOS Asset Management

For those with little time to spare, this 20 minute podcast episode provides a brief yet insightful view into the changing retail landscape and how Warby Parker is growing harmoniously through both online technology and bricks and mortar channels of eyewear retailing.

The founders, who met at the Wharton School of Business, started the company after being inspired by a lost pair of $700 glasses.

They saw the need for affordable, stylish, socially conscious and importantly – accessible eyeglasses and began to push the boundaries of traditional retailing in a time when only 1% of glasses were sold online.

Having been dubbed “the Netflix of eyewear” they now have 88 stores, with a view to open 30 more this year.

Tune in to this interview with Co-founders and Co-CEOS Neil Blumenthal and Dave Gilboa to see how Warby Parker innovates in their space.
