Frameri is changing the way people wear glasses. This young company has developed the world’s first interchangeable prescription lenses to allow glasses wearers to swap frames at will. The lenses themselves are specially designed to withstand the wear and tear of constant frame swapping. Customers will be able use a wide range of frame styles with their regular prescription lenses, as well as prescription sunglass lenses. Frameri has been taking preorders, and is poised to begin production with Italian frame makers.
The company participated in the Cincinnati, Ohio’s Brandery startup accelerator program, where I had the pleasure of working with them as a mentor. Through selection into the Brandery program, Frameri had the opportunity to receive seed funding, work with a team of mentors, and will be pitching their company to investors and venture capitalists (Demo Day Oct. 2), all through the focus of consumer-centric brand building.
Now, as the company prepares to take their product to market, they’ve launched an IndieGoGo campaign to secure further funding and raise awareness about their brand and breakthrough products. Through various levels of contribution, funders will receive Frameri frames and lenses as they are rolled out. Each contribution level is rewarded with a different “perk package.”
