Online eyeglass retailer Warby Parker could be valued at $US1 billion, Bloomberg reported Wednesday.
Citing people with knowledge of the company, Bloomberg reports that Warby Parker “has been approached by funds looking to buy a stake,” and that the potential investors who have approached Warby Parker “are willing to value Warby Parker at more than $US1 billion.”
This would double Warby Parker’s 2013 valuation of $US500 million.
Bloomberg says Warby Parker isn’t actively seeking funding right now, though investor demand “may precipitate a new financing round that would close quickly.”
Warby Parker has raised $US115.5 million since its 2010 founding.
