If you've been thinking of starting an ecommerce business, Shopify's Build-A-Business Contest is a great opportunity for you.
All you need to do is come up with a product to sell, open your online store and get selling. The Canadian Shopify store that sells the most over two months within the contest period will win a VIP trip to New York City and a $10,000 Apple Gift Card.
Just by entering the contest and starting the store, you get a mentor, and as anyone who's ever had one will tell you, that's one huge help when you're starting a business.
And the mentors are, as the billing says, world-class entrepreneurs such as Daymond John, who created the FUBU fashion brand, Arianna Huffington, the founder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group, Tina Roth Eisenberg, creator of swissmiss, and Tim Ferris, author of The 4-Hour Workweek, just to name a few.
Competition registration runs from September 16th, 2013 to March 31st, 2014, but you can sign up any time. After you register, only complete calendar months between October 1, 2013 and May 31, 2014 will be used in the calculation of Gross Sales.
