Dallas, TX, April 26, 2021 – ShearShare, the largest provider of on-demand salon and barbershop space rentals worldwide, announced today its participation in Arizona’s flagship entrepreneurial conference, PHX Startup Week.

PHX Startup Week is a five-day online event with more than 50 sessions and 80 speakers, providing education, connection, and support to entrepreneurs. 

The cofounders of ShearShare will present at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, April 26, 2021, as part of a headliner chat with Mike Jones, CEO & Managing Partner of Resound, a Tempe-based brand agency. The session will discuss creating a new ecosystem for work and the growth of startup hubs outside of Silicon Valley. Dr. Tye and Courtney Caldwell’s presentation will highlight the innovation that led them to pioneer the first on-demand workspace app for beauty and barbering professionals.

“As we continue to chart the future of work for the salon industry worldwide,” says Dr. Tye Caldwell, ShearShare cofounder & CEO, “one truth remains evident: we live in a shifting business and innovation landscape, and beauty—one of the oldest industries in the world—is just as impactful on our global economy. Courtney and I look forward to sharing with PHX Startup Week attendees how deconstructing an age-old industry ultimately impacts everyday commerce.”  

“For PHX to thrive, we need to bring voices from all corners of the country together, working collaboratively to support and build a diverse entrepreneurial hub where innovation and ideas can thrive.
