Peyush BansalA dynamic, young entrepreneur Peyush Bansal envisages exploring and conquering the web 2.0 platforms in India. In 2010, Peyush incepted Lenskart.com as India’s leading online retailer of contact Lenses, eyewear and sunglasses. Lenskart.com was founded under Valyoo Technologies, a digital marketing solution provider. It offers one of the biggest selection of prescribed eyewear and other accessories by the world’s leading manufacturers like Puma, Esprit, Fastrack, Sprint, Vintage, Johnson & Johnson, Ciba Vision, Bausch & Lomb, Cooper Vision etc.

Highlighting the potential of such an initiative, Peyush said, “One-third of Indian population needs vision correction and only 25% of them use eyeglasses today. With unmatched variety and prices, which will not be available in the neighborhood eyewear retailer, LensKart makes it possible for the consumers to acquire high-quality eyewear with anti-reflection prescription lenses starting from Rs 500 only.”

Already delivering in 450 cities in India, with an average of 72-hour free-home-delivery time and a 14-day no-questions-asked return policy, the customer can just click and order their perfect pair of eyeglasses, contact lenses and sunglasses, without any worry.

To make things better, LensKart has come up with its own range of eyewear under the brand name “LensKart”. The LensKart eyewear excel in quality and style.

Company has already diversified from an online eyewear store into selling watches and bags through its two new websites launched in 2011, namely watchkart.com and bagskart.com.

Eariier, Peyush saw an opportunity in the reservations of the students and addressed them, which led to the development of a successful website called searchmycampus.com, in the year 2008.

After he decided to quit Microsoft in 2007, Peyush only wanted to extend a helping hand to the students and the motto was not to make money out of the venture. The eager enthusiast went on to explore the e-commerce market in India and with his profound knowledge of the market he incepted

His deep understanding of Human capital, organization development and finance has brought in a revolutionary transformation in his ventures. Under his dynamic leadership, LensKart has emerged as the industry leader in its category and has been instrumental in the success of the company in a fiercely competitive market.

Peyush has a strong academia, where he holds a bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering Honors from McGill University Canada (2002-2006). He studied management from the Indian Institute of management (IIM) Bangalore for the year 2008-2009.

As an entrepreneur, he emerged as a winner in coming up with something new. Of course incepting such innovative idea as a business entity is just a first step, and he has a long way to cover. With such dynamic understanding, capabilities, and potential, we wish Peyush a successful venture ahead.
