Hubble begins European expansion in the UK

05/03/2018
The US’ first direct-to-consumer subscription contact lens brand, Hubble, has been launched in the UK as part of the company’s second wave of global expansion.

Hubble’s move into the European market comes around six months after the company established a presence in Canada, and less than 14 months from when it first launched in November 2016.


"We look forward to bringing affordable, daily contact lenses to even more people around the world."
Mr Ben Cogan, Co-Founder / Co-CEO at Hubble Contacts

According to the company, it is one of the fastest e-commerce startups in the US, with monthly growth of about 20%.

So far it has received more than US$30 million (AU$37.7 m) in venture capital financing to accommodate the company’s growing subscriber base and fund the global sales strategies.

“The rate at which our company has grown over the past 14 months is even further proof that there was a clear void in the market for a service like ours,” co-founder and co-CEO Mr Ben Cogan said.

“Our launches in Canada and the UK are just the beginning of our international journey and we look forward to bringing affordable, daily contact lenses to even more people around the world.”

UK customers will be able to access the subscription service for £24 (AU$42.40) a month.
