Shopify is a commerce platform that provides individuals and businesses the infrastructure to quickly and easily sell products online and in-store. Shopify went public in 2015 on the New York Stock Exchange ("SHOP") and Toronto Stock Exchange ("SH").
Tobias Lütke is the founder and CEO of Shopify. In 2004, Tobi began building software to launch an online snowboard store called Snowdevil. It quickly became obvious that the software was more valuable than the snowboards, so Tobi and his founding team launched the Shopify platform in 2006. He has served as CEO since 2008 at the company’s headquarters in Ottawa, Canada.
