Warby Parker founder Neil Blumenthal speaks at Big Omaha conference — This is a great talk for those of you interested in the brand beyond just the good-looking frames. He gives you a great behind-the-scenes look of the eyeglass industry and explains how two big companies are essentially responsible for why you’re paying hundreds for a pair of glasses. I liked this quotation in particular:
“Glasses have been around for 700 years. Why are they as expensive as an iPhone and why is there still a billion people on earth who still don’t have access to them?”
I always find listening to founders talking about their companies to be particularly educational and sometimes inspiring. Definitely worth 30 minutes of my time to listen to in the background.
