About the speaker
April was all about risk — and the circumstances and perspectives that exist in order for us to take one. This month, we’re delving deeper into those circumstances and defining our realities. Reality, on the surface, feels so tangible; so concrete. But (to, perhaps cheaply, use a turn of phrase), in reality, it isn’t quite so simple. Our existence is made of several truths, always shifting under our feet.
To speak on this month’s theme we’re excited to invite Director of Product at Shopify and recent winner of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Retail And E-Commerce, Satish Kanwar. Satish will be speaking on the way in which digital partnerships can affect the real every day reality of a business and how it functions.
Toronto native Satish, 29, has been instrumental in launching e-commerce software outfit Shopify’s biggest partnerships, including Facebook and Pinterest’s ‘Buy’ buttons. Shopify went public in 2015 and now has a market cap of over $2.5 billion.
Previously Satish co-founded Jet Cooper, a design agency that was acquired in 2013 by Shopify. He is an active speaker, mentor, and contributor in the Canadian startup community.
Shopify is a commerce platform that offers a professional online storefront, a payment solution, and the Shopify POS retail application. Shopify currently powers over 150,000 online stores in over 150 different countries.
