Hi, my name is Shashi Jain. I am a Portland-based entrepreneur, innovation leader, and strategic doer. I most recently served at Intel Corporation as a Senior Strategic Innovation Manager, pathfinding new applications in Healthcare, AI for Space applications and Blockchain. I am an experienced corporate entrepreneur with a track record of incubating ideas that go to production, using Lean Startup, Customer Development, and Rapid prototyping methodologies. I build frameworks such as the KPI Compass, Decision Quality Canvas, and the Startup Ladder for building and measuring innovation programs.
Outside of work, I organize the Portland 3D Printing Lab community, 3D print prosthetic hands for kids via the eNABLE community, teach innovation and entrepreneurship to high school students through TYE Oregon, and actively mentor early stage startups. I am co-Founder of Makerforce, a non-profit that brings together Makers and Manufacturers to respond to emergencies like the COVID19 pandemic.
