Before the founding of Jonas Paul Eyewear, Laura obtained a diverse set of entrepreneurial skills as the co-founder of four businesses with her husband, Ben. Laura is most thankful for having been given the opportunity to make a broad social impact through Jonas Paul Eyewear while, at the same time, making kids all over the world look incredibly dapper.
Jonas Paul Eyewear is a children’s eyewear provider with a mission to provide function and new form to children’s vision with fun, fashion-forward eyewear options. The company was founded by Ben and Laura Harrison in an effort to find stylish eyewear for their visually impaired son, Jonas - but finding such options did not exist in the children’s market. Since its founding in 2013, the company has been featured in The Wall Street Journal and other publications, in a campaign with H&M and recently developed an exclusive line for Tea Collection. JPE also provides sight to those in need through its partnership with CBM International.
