Adriel's passion for helping the unemployed started during a 6-month period of unemployment he faced a few years ago. He saw the time as a gift and started a podcast, networked 30 hours a week, and focused on "doing things that didn't scale" in order to maximize his period for growth.
Because of the opportunities he created for himself during that period, Adriel landed a job with a self driving delivery startup.
After a hard-hitting conversation with a truck driver, he started thinking about the well-being of all of the drivers who would be losing their jobs in the coming years. To address this, Adriel decided to strike out on his own and created Riveter.
Riveter members gain access to beneficial resources in health, finance, and education so that they can maximize their time of unemployment and be a stronger candidate for the job market.
