Tell us about your company.
Revive Brand Co. is a bag and accessories lifestyle brand based in Las Vegas. We develop, design and currently manufacture our products in the United States. Our products have expanded with the growth of the company since its inception in 2010. Duffle bags, backpacks, tablet sleeves and much more are all a part of our diverse product offering. It takes an incredible amount of work and intensity to make each product because we want that attention to detail to come across to our customers. We have our products in a few stores in town including LVCK and Urban Necessities in Downtown Container Park and Boulevard Mall respectively. Daily the Revive name is growing and more people are becoming a part of the #revivelife.

Jonathan Santos: CEO- The guy who had the dream and inspired this break into the bag industry. Man of many talents most importantly managing the day to day tasks and the company vision of Revive.
Cesar Santos: R&D- We call Cesar the “Jacknife” because he can do so many different things like fix cars, computers, and it turns out he is sick with designing and hand creating prototypes and products for Revive.

Why did you choose Las Vegas? What do you love about Las Vegas?
We chose Las Vegas because it is home for all of us. Being natives we feel it is important to give back to our community and bring more business to our town. This city being 24 hours is helpful and there is virtually unlimited room for growth.
What can the Las Vegas community do to help your company?
Follow us on social media and take a good look at what we have to offer. When you are school shopping or searching for a gift, take a chance on us, we will not disappoint. This is not a gimmick or a flash in the pan, Revive is here to stay and we want you to be a part of it. We are also in talks with many major industry retailers who want to distribute and carry our products. So, if you are an investor or know of one who is that’s looking to expand their portfolio, please let us know. We would gladly send a business plan and explain our goals and objectives
What’s your best advice for startup entrepreneurs?
First things first; know what you want in the beginning. You can save yourself a lot of time and loss if you know what you want and work toward that goal. By doing that all of the pain you suffer and money you spend will be used towards that, instead of blowing in the wind. Take full ownership of every detail in your business. It is yours and if something is wrong, it’s no one’s fault but your own. The faster you come to that realization the faster success will come. Finally, the only way someone can fail technically is if they stop. Apply this logic to building your business and it will pay dividends.
