"From my personal experience getting haircuts, there were many days that I felt like I wasted too much of my time. I had to either get up early on the weekend and be first at the Barbershop or wait hours for the next available barber during the week. To make matters worse, scheduling appointments weren’t 100% guaranteed. The process was always inconvenient, especially when you're trying to get the most of your day.
There had to be a better option to getting haircuts easier and more convenient for the customer. After much thought, I teamed up with Roderick Pickens and Daniel P. Castillo and integrated a software component to the grooming business that would help address this issue. Soon customers will be able to use the QuestCutz mobile app or website to book barbers, stylist or popup shops at a desired time and location."
—Marcus Pickens (Founder, CEO)
Marcus is an Entrepreneur, Advocate, and Leader in his community. He is deeply passionate about enhancing the way we currently live. He is also embedded in improving the outcomes of communities of color similar to the one he grew up in. He is the Founder and CEO of QuestCutz and he serves on the Board of Directors for the Non-Profit Organization called the Social Justice Learning Institute.
Marcus started QuestCutz for a couple reasons. The first reason was that he has a passion for culture and the hair industry, and he also simply came across a great idea when brainstorming what kind of start up concept he wanted to tackle and went for it. The second reason was that the community that he grew up in had very little representation for entrepreneurship and self-starting. Marcus grew up in Watts, Los Angeles, California and he strives to be an entrepreneurial inspiration and catalyst in his community. His hopes and intentions are on raising the levels of economic opportunity within his community and similar communities. The third reason why he started QuestCutz is because he strives to give the tech community African American representation at the top while giving youth from disadvantaged communities the belief that they can become a tech entrepreneur and pretty much anything they desire to be.
The world is changing fast and technology start ups are the drivers for the future. Unfortunately there is very little African American representation at the top or even the middle of the tech community. Marcus understands how important representation is in different industries and knows from his experience that representation for one generation becomes the dreams and aspirations of the next.
