Tibor Laczay of Zenni Optical, is truly disrupting and transforming an industry fighting to retain its hold on the market -- and losing the battle.

As they celebrate 15 years in business, they are also celebrating selling 24 million pairs of glasses worldwide -- at a rate of 15,000 per day.

What started in their garage, now has its headquarters in Novato, Calfornia, with nearly 1,000 employees worldwide -- including one of the largest end-to-end manufacturing facilities in the world.

  • How to ignore your competition (and leave them trailing behind)
  • Why you should forget the money and follow an extreme passion
