Shopify shopify, it’s all about Shopify!
Ecommerce platform Shopify has launched their 2012 Build-a-Business Contest! This is the third year of Shopify’s awesome competition. This year’s contest has some similarities to the two previous contests, but it also has some new awesome features. To get started, all you have to do is open an online store on Shopify, and start selling products. This year, the four stores that have sold the most over the course of any two month period will each win a grand prize! Take a look at the awesome grand prize.
- A $50,000 investment from a mentor in exchange for 5%, valuing your company at $1 million
- A trip to New York City to meet with all the mentors
- $20,000 Google AdWords credit
- A feature article on Fast Company’s website
Anyone who started a Shopify business after March 1, 2012 is eligible for a grand prize. A new addition to this year’s Build-a-Business contest is having a mentor. When you create your online store you get to pick one of four mentors to give you advice and guidance as you go. These mentors are all successful entrepreneurs who have the tools and knowledge to guide you in the right direction. While Shopify vendors who created their stores before March 1 aren’t eligible for the grand prize, they too can sign up and get helpful advice from a mentor. Here are this years mentors.
