Niraj Shah, CEO, Wayfair
Niraj has had a successful career as an entrepreneur, business executive, board director and most recently co-funded Wayfair, an online home furniture store. Niraj helped Wayfair consolidated over 200 websites into one main website and navigate through the pains of losing website traffic and rerouting.
