Shopify started over a decade ago when the founders wanted to sell snowboards online. They could not find an ecommerce solution that would have given them the control they needed, so they built their own ecommerce platform.
Today Shopify, based in Ottawa, is used by over 500,000 merchants of various sizes to sell online, in stores, or on the go. Shopify is committed to investing in their people and communities and their social impact initiatives focus on creating an equitable future by designging products and programmes that support their merchants.
