VisionSpring Cofounder Jordan Kassalow On Why Two Million Customers Is Not Enough

Tuesday, February 4, 2014

I founded VisionSpring, a not-for-profit social business that ensure affordable access to eyewear, everywhere. After more than 10 years, we have trained an army of sales agents, 20,000 strong. Thanks to them, we are closing in on our two millionth customer, 500,000 of whom were reached in 2013 alone. Yet, compared to the over 700 million people who do not have access to affordable eyeglasses, we haven’t made enough of an impact.
