About Shai

I have over 15 years of experience, from cross border M&A, business strategy and finance in several areas from traditional manufacturing to advertising, digital marketing and tech. I have lived in several countries and have travelled extensively for work.

Four years ago I launched my first venture in ecommerce in Asia. The site was a multi brand fashion retailer, with a self built customer care, logistics (3rd party and self delivery) and warehouse capabilities. Including all systems to support this capable of handling 10k orders per day.

Separately, we also designed (in house design team), manufactured and sourced our own brands from various parts of Asia. Our fashion brands were sold via the online portal, distributors and franchise partners.

After recently exiting this business, I am back in the US and looking to partner with like minded entrepreneurs who can either join me or I can join them. I can be a real asset to you if you have a late stage idea and are looking to launch or monetize and grow a later stage idea. I have experience with fund raising and have managed/bought and sold worldwide companies in access of $1 billion. I also have a local and global network that can help.

I have some ecommerce based ideas around 3D printing which I have been working on for a few months, but still early days. I need a strong product manager and coder that shares in my vision to possibly get to the initial prototype.

I currently am advising several companies in the advertising/media space and the warehouse automation space.

Happy to speak to you about any ideas that you are passionate about.
