Find out how one company did it in the next episode of our C-suite leadership series when Comparably co-founder/CEO Jason Nazar chats with Dave Gilboa, the co-founder/co-CEO of Warby Parker — a transformative lifestyle brand worth an estimated $1.75B. Since launching in 2010 as a direct-to-consumer business offering designer eyewear at a revolutionary price, it arguably changed how people buy prescription glasses. Over the past decade, Warby Parker has grown to 2,000 employees and 130 stores in North America. Since Day One, over 7 million glasses have been distributed to those in need from developing countries through its «Buy a Pair, Give a Pair» program. This one-on-one conversation will center around the Warby Parker success story, in addition to practical «If I Knew Then…» leadership advice, personal life philosophies, and the challenges and opportunities for entrepreneurs in today’s landscape. Other topics that will be covered include:
- Maintaining your brand’s core values and original vision during hyper-growth

- Implementing a people-first mindset during a crisis
- How to approach reopenings (redesigned store experience, health & safety protocols)
