Doerksen stayed in school and worked three days a week with her cofounders in Kornilov’s living room.Over the next three years, Kornilov and Surkov developed patented technology that lets customers virtually try on glasses and shows how they would look from every angle. Doerksen, meanwhile, worked on the business plan and on introducing the idea to eyewear makers.With $3 million in seed funding from August Capital, Ditto launched in April 2012 with 350 styles from eight designer brands.”We were lucky at the beginning because the virtual try on tool got a lot of attention from the press,” Doerksen recalled.Each customer profile, called a “ditto,” takes about 15 seconds to create.
