With Sherlock, companies(enterprise, medium and small) can now subscribe to consumer insights, along with recommendations of the actions required to grow their business, instead of spending time, labor and money on building complex data and analytics systems.Creating a technology stack to mine multiple data sets for signals on consumer behavior requires heavy investment, building a tech savvy and a data science team and a team with enough experience to manage infrastructure. It also requires a team to manage the interoperability of all the components of this entire infrastructure/technology stack. It takes years to get this stack together and a few more years to get it to provide the consumer insights and actions for it. This is usually only within consideration of large companies because of the significant investment in terms of capital both human and monetary. Such infrastructure also requires tremendous amounts of ongoing maintenance.Sherlock helps companies convert their Capital Expenses (on consumer insights) into Operational Insights.

Bo Shao Angel · San Francisco, California, United States
Bo Shao was born and grew up in Shanghai, China. When he was four, his father taught him mathematics by training him to add up a deck of poker cards, as his family was too poor to buy any other tools. After practicing dozens of times a day, by the time he was twelve, he could add up a deck of 52 cards in 12 seconds. He went on to win over a dozenhigh school mathematics competitions in China.During his junior year of high school, Bo was admitted to Harvard College with a full scholarship. He was one of the first to go to Harvard College directly from mainland China with such a scholarship since 1949. “When I was applying in 1990, everyone thought it was impossible. Since then, Harvard has admitted two or three students every year from China on full scholarships. It taught me that if one works hard, and believes in himself, and with a bit of luck, he can achieve things beyond his wildest dreams.”After working in the Boston Consulting Group in Boston and obtaining an MBA from Harvard Business School, Bo went back to China in 1999 and started EachNet, an online marketplace. “My parents thought I was nuts, to turn down very lucrative job offers and the chance of getting a green card” Bo recalls, “I was very naïve and totally unprepared for business in general and the huge challenges of bootstrapping a startup in particular.”After four years, after a lot of trial and error and through the boom and bust of the Internet industry, Bo and his team persevered and built EachNet to become the largest consumer e-commerce site in China. EachNet was acquired by eBay for US$225 million in a landmark transaction in 2003. The Asian Venture Capital Journal named Bo the Entrepreneur of the Year in 2003.Bo is now focused on helping entrepreneurs build promising businesses in China. Bo says, “Being the CEO and founder of a startup is a very lonely job. An entrepreneur feels incredible responsibility to his team, his customers, and his investors. Sometimes it feels like every decision could make or sink the company, but there is no guidebook or right answer. Everyone looks to him for answers but he has no one to share his worries with.” Bo likes to get involved in the early stages of a company, become a partner and resource for the founders, and use his experience to help founders.
