Shivam Parikh (BSE Aero ’05) has recently established an endowment fund, the Shivam V. Parikh Scholarship Fund.  This fund will provide need-based support to students within the College of Engineering, and this gift qualifies for the Bicentennial Opportunity Matching Initiative.

After graduating the U-M College of Engineering, Shivam Parikh began to explore his entrepreneurial interests through helping brands create websites and next-generation media for assets such as interactive displays.  From there, he helped create Visual Image, which provides consumer engagement technologies for global brands.  He currently serves as president of Visual Image, and he and his wife, Margo Russell Parikh, reside in Little Ferry, New Jersey.
