Co-Founder and CEO, BucketFeet
Raaja Nemani is Co-Founder and CEO of BucketFeet, a Chicago-based e-commerce company that creates artist-designed footwear. Raaja’s international travels—which include a trek through the Himalayas and a dive with great white sharks—inspired him to launch BucketFeet with co-founder Aaron Firestein in 2011, as a platform to celebrate artists from all over the world. Now selling in 10 countries, Bucketfeet has built an artist network of 1,000 artists from over 30 countries. Raaja injects his love of design and global community into BucketFeet’s mission, which aims to find a different artist to design every pair of shoes and provide consumers original footwear that stands out and tells a story.
