This post is 100% dedicated to recognizing the amazing women who are helping to grow and shape the Shopify industry. Ecommerce is an incredibly exciting space, every day there are new businesses, new successes, and new ideas, but without these women, and the many many others out there just like them, this industry would not exist.
From all of us at Octane AI, and in our community, thank you for your insights, your contributions, and all that you do.
With the help of a tremendous amount of friends on Twitter, as a community we have put together a list of amazing women in the Shopify space that you would be smart to follow on Twitter pronto. We absolutely did not get everyone, and would love to continuously add people to this list, so if you have recommendations, please tweet them at me at @MattPRD.
You can also follow the list I put together here: Women in Shopify Twitter List
