Entrepreneur, Businessman & An Author
It has been a long and winding road to recovery. And the journey continues to this day.
Rishabh Puri was born in India and raised in Nigeria. He attended an Indian school, before moving to a British school. He had a degree in business administration from the United Kingdom through distance learning from Middlesex University. He also has a master’s degree in business administration (International Trade) from UK via distance learning from London Business School, as well. Frankly, getting into business was never on the agenda. He did not have an engineering background, but the influence of his father made him explore a different side, which he wasn’t aware of. And he hasn’t looked back ever since.
He is a highly accomplished entrepreneur of Indian origin with his spurring business set ups in Nigeria, Dubai, UAE, and China. He got into his family business at the age of 18 and since then he has been a backbone of his esteemed enterprises. However, his childhood was not as fancy because he was diagnosed with life-threatening heart disease at the age of 1. He often craved for a ‘Normal Life’ that everyone else was able to enjoy. His life was mostly limited to talking to the Doctors and visiting hospitals for several major surgeries and regular checkups. Despite being so near to death every time he was on the surgery table, he never restricted himself from hoping to live a full life, a life comprised of happiest moments complimented with a lot of humor.
Reading and writing have always been a hobby for him and many years ago he wrote his first manuscript without ever imagining that it’ll get published ‘someday’. In 2017, his maiden book showcased at the bookstores with a cover reflecting the title, “Inside the Heart of Hope” which was well appreciated by the readers out there. He became an Author quite officially and is now ready with his forthcoming novel namely ‘Flying Without Wings’. His writings are mostly centered on Hope, Love, Life; almost what our mankind needs in the recent times.
Rishabh is not just a busy businessman who spares time for his most cherished skills for penning down fiction, but he is also an avid traveler, a super car enthusiast, a Romantic chef over the weekend, a natural drawer, ‘a hookah + green tea’ combination lover, and an active volunteer for supporting the needy strata of our society.
Rishabh makes his home in Lagos, Nigeria where he stays for most of the year with his family;He keeps coming back to India and stays in Chandigarh, his birthplace, which is so close to his faulty heart for obvious reasons.
He believes that determination can take one to great heights in business and personal life. A man of many talents – a writer, poet and artist – he believes that one always has a choice to turn any situation into victory.
Driven by curiosity and the hunger to learn, he loves to meet new people and explore the world. He has always been fascinated by the power of the mind. He is quite a comic himself and enjoys the occasional dose of sitcoms and movies.
