How to Get Mentored in a Castle with Shopify’s Build a Business Competition

Shopify is running its super-cool Build a Business competition, where the aim is to open an online store and sell as much as possible.

If you end up with the highest gross revenue in your category, you win a trip to New York’s Oheka Castle — also known as The Great Gatsby Mansion — to meet some great mentors.

I would love to have the time to brainstorm a new product and start selling! Sounds like a lot of fun and even if you don’t win, at the end of it all you have a great shop that has made revenue… or you haven’t made anything but learnt a lot along the way!


Past winners of the Build a Business competition include:

  • GameKlip, a sleek clip that connects your smartphone to a PlayStation controller
  • GoldieBlox, an educational toy company that helps girls develop an interest in engineering
  • Coffee Joulies, stainless steel beans that keep your coffee at the perfect temperature

Got a cool idea or product to sell? Read more about it here or watch this video.

Remember that great product images can help to increase your online sales so feel free to send me an email if you need any help or have any questions. I would love to help out!
