Manchester eyewear company Specscart named on prestigious Forbes 30 under 30 Europe list

Specscart founder, Sid Sethi, Masood Entrepreneurship Centre Venture Further Award winner, judge and University of Manchester alumnus, has been listed in the Forbes 30 under 30 Europe list.

The annual list recognises Europe’s best innovators and entrepreneurs who are transforming their fields.

Specscart has three shops across Greater Manchester with innovative e-commerce which sees the glasses made in-house and delivered within 24 hours.

Since 2018, the business has grown into a global retail and online force to be reckoned with and is on track for a 2024 turnover of £5m.

Sid said: “Being named on this year’s Forbes 30 under 30 Europe list is like winning the National Lottery, an Oscar and the Premier League all in one day.

“It might be my name on the list but Specscart wouldn’t be flourishing as it is now without the dedication and hard work of everyone who works here – from back-office staff and our lab technicians to our tech team and sales assistants. This is a well-earned pat on the back for all of them too.

“Specscart will be using this hugely prestigious win as rocket fuel in our business. This accolade is a triumph for me, and everyone at Specscart, but it’s also a win for Manchester, the North West and UK plc.”

Specscart ships to more than 120 countries worldwide – from the Maldives and Saudi Arabia to the Falkland Islands and Cape Verde.
