Established in 2021 in Toronto, Canada, Risedesk is a startup built on sustainability, innovation, and functionality by specializing in ergonomic home office furniture. What initially began as a childhood dream for co-founders and best friends Michael and Mike, quickly grew to something much more. Since its launch, Risedesk has exploded into the marketplace, becoming Canada’s number one brand for standing desks. Consequently, the company has received burgeoning requests to expand into the United States. Presently, they are working on developing their market presence in the US.

Meet the founders: Michael Fan and Mike Huang

From Vancouver, Canada, Michael and Mike (formerly known as Michael, but now goes by Mike to avoid confusion), were brought together in sixth-grade and bonded over their many similarities, unironically including their identical first names and the drive to make a positive impact in their community. 

After moving to Toronto together, graduating from university and finally entering the corporate world, they saw their health suffered sitting at “one size fits all” corporate desks all day. Michael developed chronic poor posture while Mike suffered from repercussions such as lower back and neck pain, life-long foot injuries, hamstring tightness, and weight gain of 30 pounds.

Then and there, they established corporate work solutions are not sustainable for health nor the environment. With that, Risedesk was born and became the first and only Toronto-based ergonomic furniture company.
