Shopify Launches Fourth Annual Build A Business Competition

Shopfiy’s annual Build A Business competition is returning for its fourth year.

According to Shopify, this year, the nine stores that sell the most over a two-month period will each receive $50,000 in cash and a trip to New York for mentorship.

The Build A Business challenge is designed for business owners to get their businesses online and compete with other owners from all over the world.



“What I love most about Build A Business—beyond its ability to launch new businesses and improve the consumer experience—is its focus on mentorship,” says Arianna Huffington. “It’s about building while tapping into the wisdom and experience of others, and telling the stories of the hard work, creativity and collaboration that fuel innovation.”
