Rivir is co-founded by Viresh Madan and Ankeeta Deb
Viresh is the backbone of Rivir. With a natural talent of running a business, he garnered his sales and marketing skills over the years through his education and experience, which is when his love to start his own venture continued to grow. He graduated from University of Birmingham, UK and specialized in marketing, post which he started working with a global Oil and Petroleum giant in the sales division. After a brief but enriching experience he moved on to start his own venture, Skylogic Technologies Pvt Ltd, at a tender age of 22. After a 3 year stint, he moved out of the company and joined a leading digital agency. He played a pivotal role in the digital marketing division. This helped him strengthen his marketing and planning skill sets. Viresh has always been a person with great resilience and has a go getter attitude. He is handling sales and marketing, operations, logistics and business development in Rivir.
Ankeeta is the art and heart of Rivir. Her innate itch to make products that are out of the box made her meet her lifelong passion of redesigning footwear. She started painting on canvas shoes and by the time she finished schooling, she had made a large fan base for her shoes. She completed her graduation in Chemical Engineering and pursued her Masters in Marketing in Mudra Institute of Communications Ahmedabad (MICA) which helped her understand the business side of creativity. As a student, she gathered sound knowledge about canvas shoes and deeply believed that there was a definite vacant space of choices available in the market. She is currently heading the designing, marketing and business development under Rivir.
She joined hands with Viresh during her days in college and together started vehement research about the market and opportunities for manufacturing. After almost a year of research, they launched Rivir in 2015.
