Hubble, a NYC-based contact lens brand, raised $7.2m in funding.
Backers included Founders Fund; Greycroft Partners; Wildcat Capital Management (the family office of TPG Capital Founder, David Bonderman); Two River; Uber Early Architect and Founding CTO, Oscar Salazar; and Brian Levy, the former Chief Medical Officer of Bausch and Lomb.
The company will use the funds to continue to expand operations.
Led by Ben Cogan and Jesse Horwitz, Hubble operates a direct-to-consumer FDA approved contact lens brand leveraging a subscription model. The contact lenses are available now at www.hubblecontacts.com for $264/year for an annual subscription, or $30/month for a monthly subscription. Every new customer gets their first two weeks of lenses free ($3 S/H), and can cancel anytime, including during the free period.
