Mark’ennovy secures funding for growth

The contact lens company will use the investment to develop its product range

George Sarrouf

The investor company, Bond Capital Partners, has acquired an interest in Mark’ennovy in order to globally develop the contact lens company.

Additional debt finance has also been provided to Mark’ennovy by investment banking company, Alantra.

Chairman and CEO of the contact lens company, George Sarrouf (pictured), said: “This newly founded alliance allows us to accelerate new product development focused on an almost infinite choice of daily and monthly soft contact lenses. With a significantly wider range of materials, geometries and parameters we will provide access to contact lens wear that previously was unavailable.”

CEO of Bond Capital Partners, Mark Opzoomer, said that Mark’ennovy has a “powerful, but understated position in the market.”

“The company has the potential to provide practitioners with a unique product range disrupting the ‘one size fits all’ mentality to one which provides precision-based solutions,” he added.

Mark’ennovy launched its Versa One Day Toric contact lens in September, which is the company’s first daily disposable contact lens.
