Not too long ago, we opened the doors to our NYC Shopify Partner Studio — a co-working space for creative professionals working in the ecommerce industry. For six months, two groups of freelance web designers and developers have been hard at work sharing ideas, collaborating on projects, and growing their businesses. They’ve even been joined by a furry friend on occasion!
We were thrilled to offer this unique opportunity to 12 talented freelancers living in New York City, but we wanted to help more freelancers kickstart their freelance careers around the world.
Introducing: The Shopify Partner Studio in Mexico City!
The Mexico City Shopify Partner Studio is a 12-week incubation program where 10 creative entrepreneurs from the ecommerce industry receive the resources and support needed to kickstart their business with Shopify.
To help us with this monumental task, we partnered with SUM — Mexico’s first “entrepreneurship campus”. In addition to the chance to learn from industry experts at Shopify, the residents of the Mexico City Partner Studio will also be able to participate in SUM’s courses, workshops, and events. Plus, our Partner Studio residents get to work out of SUM’s awesome coworking space.
Meet the residents!
