Shajan has excellent networking skills, is very flexible in his thinking, and is driven to improve his world.
Rod Copes
They're my friends  •  President North America, Royal Enfield and President and Co-owner, Applied Fab & Machining. Massachusetts Institute of Technology grad.
Shajan is a great guy - friendly, approachable, smart and hard working. He is highly regarded by his peers and business executives both loc ... ally and around the globe. He is always interested in helping others especially with business problems or issues. He is a thought leader and often takes an unconventional/creative approach to a problem. He identifies business solutions before most even discover there is an opportunity or problem to be solved. I am honored to call Shajan a friend, advisor and mentor. I believe he would be an incredibly valuable person for other entrepreneurs to be connected with.

Lauren Stinson
We worked together  •  Loan Servicing Associate , RSF Social Finance. Previously Account Manager, BlueVine. University of Wisconsin-Madison grad.
Shajan was the project leader for an international, multi-university social enterprise imitative in Southern India. I was a student particip ... ant in the project and was impressed by Shajan's vision, leadership, network and process planning. Beyond our work together in India, Shajan continues to demonstrate his ingenuity and curiousity for building a better global community. He is a strong mentor for me and other young people that he has helped to lead over the years. His innate interest in problem solving and networking with like-minded people make him an excellent candidate for FounderDating.
