    Episode 62: Lena Imamura and Sas Simon, Co-Founders of NAME GLO

    Episode 62: Lena Imamura and Sas Simon, Co-Founders of NAME GLO

    Lena Imamura and Sas Simon, Co-Founders of NAME GLO, step onto the New York Launch Pod to discuss their custom neon design studio that lets customers commission unique artwork for every special moment in their lives while also providing pre-made artisan items for sale.







    Lena and Sas didn’t set out to start a business that would light millenials’ Instagram accounts on fire. Instead the idea for NAME GLO began when Sas was searching for a neon to celebrate her nephew’s birth. Sas soon discovered a complete lack of consumer friendly methods for ordering or designing neon at a moderate price point. So she turned to her high school friend Lena who had the artistic experience and expertise to design custom pieces. After these pieces became popular, the two realized they had a business.







    NAME GLO has a variety of premade and custom designs you can create using their interactive online builder and by working with them directly to transform your unique idea into reality. In this episode we talk about how NAME GLO preempted the rebirth of neon, how their pieces are manufactured in their studio, and their brand new store that just opened on the Lower East Side!

    Episode 59: Heidi Hertel, Founder and Gabriel Schlumberger, CEO of Fitz Frames

    Episode 59: Heidi Hertel, Founder and Gabriel Schlumberger, CEO of Fitz Frames

    Heidi Hertel, founder and Gabriel Schlumberger, CEO of Fitz Frames, step onto the New York Launch Pod to discuss their revolutionary eyeglass company that promises to make shopping for glasses fun and headache free for kids and adults.







    Despite recent innovations, eyeglasses have been manufactured the same way for years. And while standardized styles and sizes may work for some people, they don't work for others, especially children. However, Fitz has developed a way for everyone to have eyewear customized perfectly to their face - at an affordable price.







    By combining 3D printing and facial recognition technology found in smartphones, Fitz creates custom fit eyeglasses in a variety of styles that are both extremely durable and fashionable. Fitz's app allows users (especially kids) to have fun by virtually trying on glasses, selecting their own style/color, measuring over 1,000 points on each face to ensure a perfect fit and even engraving their names. Fitz's innovative manufacturing process, combined with their glasses being made in the USA, means those customized eyeglasses are delivered to you quickly.







    In this episode we discuss how Heidi and Gabe were able to perfect their 3D printing and facial scanning technology, why they're so passionate about eyeglasses (especially for children), and what it means to disrupt the glasses buying experience.
