Rishika Agarwal and Navam Gupta are next-gen couple-preneurs, who starting with a Bachelors in Information Technology from India, went on to pursue their passion for Computer Science, with a masters from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. The charm of Silicon Valley combined with their love for technology, drew them to the San Francisco bay area, where they gained valuable experience for several years.
#Navrish tied the knot in 2014, attended several of their friends’ weddings over the years and started noticing a pattern. There was too much hassle and chaos during weddings, where guests are clueless about events and timings, while the hosts are losing sleep about a zillion other things. In fact, it was during their own wedding, when they first witnessed the problem of Baraati's getting lost due to lack of information and communication. Couple that with other incidences, wherein during a destination wedding, they were constantly being disturbed by the hotel staff with wedding updates, while taking a nap. But the eureka moment came to them when they just couldn’t keep tab on a friend's wedding activities and keeping up with weddings was becoming a nightmare. They realized having the right kind of support and tools at their disposal will make things easier and way more fun for those hosting and attending the wedding. Thus, the idea to conceptualize WedHaven – a wedding management app was born, and brought #Navrish back home to turn it into a reality!
