Warby Parker raises $60 million in Series C funding

Posted Dec 20, 2013

Warby Parker has raised $60 million in Series C funding led by previous investor Tiger Global Management. Now Warby Parker has raised over $100 million since being founded in 2010. Tiger Global offered to lead the round of financing quickly so that Warby Parker could focus more on building their business rather than fundraising.

“We wanted to bulletproof our balance sheet,” stated Warby Parker co-founder and co-CEO Dave Gilboa in an interview with Fortune.

Warby Parker started out as a small glasses e-commerce company, but they have started building brick-and-mortar stores.
