The co-founders of Owndays, CEO Shuji Tanaka and COO Take Umiyama, will continue to hold stock and serve as the team’s leaders as the company continues to function as a distinct brand. L Catterton, Mitsui, and Principal Investments, the existing top owners, will sell their shares to Lenskart.

Lenskart will assist Owndays in creating a better online and Omni experience with its 300-person tech team, which is anticipated to grow to 500 in FY23. While Owndays scales quickly to serve premium categories, the firm claimed it will continue its rapid expansion in South East Asia and India to service the mass to mid-premium segments.
