Earlier this year Ottawa's Shopify announced that it acquired award-winning mobile shop Select Start Studios Inc. (S3).
This strategic acquisition was their first major investment since raising a $15 million Series B round and set up Shopify with the ammunition to rapidly execute on their mobile growth strategy.
“After seeing a massive increase in mobile transactions at Shopify, we believe there is great demand and opportunity for m-commerce,” said CEO Tobi Lütke at the time. “The S3 acquisition brings in top talent that will rapidly deliver on our mobile strategy, and produce several new mobile product offerings this year.”
Today Shopify launched Shopify Mobile and it looks pretty slick.
