The Voice Episode 94: Shopify — Strategies for Breakout Success

The Voice Shopify

In this episode of The Voice, host Tina Barton is joined by Shopify’s Brennan Loh, Head of Business Development, and Courtney Symons, Partner Marketing Manager.

In a little over a decade, Shopify has become Ottawa’s most distinguished company, providing an e-commerce platform to thousands of budding entrepreneurs and large corporations, allowing all to create a unique and easy retail experience for their customers to enjoy.  Shopify now serves more than 175,000 businesses in about 150 countries, employs over 800 people, and has produced $10 billion in total sales. They’ve scored big partner deals with Facebook, Twitter, Uber and most recently Amazon. They count Richard Branson and Tim Ferris among their supporters.

This episode is not just about breakout startup success, but how to create an environment where innovation can let loose, how to build successful partnerships from the ground up – even when starting from scratch – and how strategic content development provides the basis for everything. Joined by Brennan Loh, Head of Business Development, and Courtney Symons, Partner Marketing Manager, we cover Shopify’s path to stretching “up market”, and hear a preview of what’s next.
