Specscart boss named on Forbes 30 under 30 Europe list 2024

The founder of ambitious eyewear company Specscart has been named on the prestigious Forbes 30 under 30 Europe list 2024.

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

Specscart founder and managing director Sid Sethi (pictured outside the Bury HQ) has been listed in the retail and e-commerce category for disrupting the UK eyewear industry.

Specscart brings together a high street retail offering of three bricks and mortar shops across Greater Manchester with innovative e-commerce which sees the affordable glasses they make in-house at their Bury headquarters, delivered in 24 hours.

Trailblazer Sid kickstarted his optical company Specscart, in Manchester, in 2018. Since then, 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.

Sid beat off competition from thousands of award nominations to make it on to the list having wowed Forbes editors and expert industry judges with his game-changing retail and global e-commerce offer.

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