Shawn Harris and Niraj Shah are serial entrepreneurs who have been building businesses in the region for more than a decade. Harris, 36, is the founder of Nyopoly.com, a Boston website that allows shoppers to name their price to buy products from brick and mortar retailers. Shah, 38, is cofounder of Wayfair LLC, which was founded as CSN Stores in 2002 and now is one of the Internet’s biggest sellers of home goods. We asked Harris to lead a conversation with Shah about running start-ups. Here is an edited interview:
Harris: You’re a consumer Internet site. Boston’s big on technology behind the technology. Was there anything ever inside you guys that said, should we stay in Boston, or should we move elsewhere?
