About

Rizknows About Main Image

Thank you for visiting our website!

RIZKNOWS was founded in 2013 by Jeff Rizzo in his parents’ garage. In the years since, RIZKNOWS has become hyper-focused on two things:

  • 1 Finding the best deals and discounts on sports & outdoor, technology, and home & hardware products.
  • 2 Providing high-quality, concise, and helpful reviews that consumers actually enjoy watching.

70+ Million Views on YouTube

Backed by Haney Business Ventures

Founded by 2 Former Investment Bankers

As you will see below, RIZKNOWS is a collaborative effort and we’re proud of that.

Every deal we post and every video we produce has several contributors. And by the way, we have a lot of awesome contributors: professional athletes, entrepreneurs, average Joe’s, family, friends, and others.

MEET THE TEAM

Each of these individuals brings a unique perspective to the table and is why we are able to provide what we think are the best deals and reviews to you everyday. We hope that you enjoy RIZKNOWS.com and appreciate all of your support. If, for some reason, you don’t like the site, make sure to yell at our web developers, Post Modern Marketing. Actually, don’t. They’re really good people.
