Headliner | From bedroom to Branson: Tens Sunglasses
Wednesday 08 March 2017
18:00 - 19:00
The next generation of sunglasses invented in Scotland?
For Kris Reid and Marty Bell, this wasn’t a far-fetched idea, as they travelled around the Highlands craving rich and warm colours. Three years ago they dreamt up Tens; the sunglasses that make life look better.
Seeking £10k to go into production, they woke up one day to £370k secured through Indiegogo; one of the top five most-funded fashion projects on any crowdfunding website.
Now with customers in 100+ countries, a brand new store in London, and a recent cash injection from Richard Branson, Reid and Bell will share their journey from bedroom to Branson.
