Event description

Description

Please join us on Wednesday, November 8, from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. EST for a conversation with Shopify COO Harley Finkelstein about the future of e-commerce and the changing nature of retail in the digital age.

Over the past year, big American retailers including Macy’s, J.C. Penney and RadioShack have shuttered more than 4,000 stores across North America, while the stock price of online retailing giant Amazon.com has hit record highs. Shopify’s platform gives users the same sophisticated selling capabilities as Amazon, and the company works with small businesses and established players to help them navigate the digital transition.

Finkelstein will discuss the future of retail, how the company retained its strong corporate culture over ten years of explosive growth, and what our shopping habits can teach us about where the world is headed.
