“When we launched Hubble 10 months ago, we only had eight employees,” said Ben Cogan, co-founder and co-CEO of Hubble. “Now we have almost 100 people working with the business, both domestically and abroad, and the business continues to grow every day. Our mission is to continue to provide affordable, quality daily contact lenses to more people in more places, and to bring our product to Canada is just the beginning.”
