Shares of investment firm Tekcapital (LON: TEK) are gaining on Thursday after it announced that its portfolio company, Lucyd’s Innovative Eyewear subsidiary, has launched a new regulation crowdfund.
The company is looking to raise $500,000 at a $20m pre-money valuation.
Lucy said the money raised will be spent on building inventory to meet the increasing customer demand from its e-commerce and retail sales channels.

“To-date the product has received more than 200 5-star ratings on Amazon and our Lucyd.co e-shop. We plan to introduce six new styles of our smart eyewear in the next 60 days, including the first titanium front Bluetooth glasses, which weigh just 30 grams, the same as traditional eyewear.”
