Mister Spex – Seeing eye-to-eye with Goldman Sachs

The future is looking 20/20 for Mister Spex after it picked up a $40 million funding round led by U.S. investment bank Goldman Sachs at the start of the year. The online retailer’s existing backers also participated, helping founder Dirk Graber and his team of over 300 achieve an important milestone.
