"We want to give a voice to all kinds of entrepreneurs around the world,” said Shopify CEO Tobi Lutke. “And that means making it easier for them to run a business and become successful. Unite is when we show the world our progress on this journey, and invite our developer and partner community to join us."

Retail is not dead, it’s changing: making retail accessible to every merchant supports a thriving economy.
Marketing simplification: reducing the complexity of marketing to help business owners sell more.
Redefining how work gets done: automating and simplifying the back office workflows.
