Before graduating from Babson, Shais completed his B.S in Microbiology from Michigan State University. At an early age, he had a very curious mindset and always tried to understand the purpose of things and why they worked the way they did. During his undergrad, Shais found himself coming up with ideas all the time, but would suppress them as he thought ideas were just for dreamers, and being a doctor was the only true career path.
After graduating, Shais was torn whether to pursue medicine or venture off on his own and learn how to bring the ideas he had to life. This is when he decided to pursue Babson instead, as it was the best entrepreneurship school, and he felt that it would give him the knowledge he needed to start something of his own. From Babson, he learned how to analyze industries, create financial statements, and incorporate user feedback throughout the entire product development process.
Shais is now applying this knowledge in real-time as the current Founder of HouseCuts, taking on all the parts of managing, executing, marketing, and developing the tech for the company. He also enjoys public speaking and has had three years of teaching experience, giving him the confidence to communicate the bigger picture to others in a clear and concise way. Shais lives by efficiency and innovation, and is passionate about using technology to improve the lives of others. He truly believes the salon industry is ripe for disruption and is eager to see what he can change within the space.
