Growing up, Harley Finkelstein had a passion for entrepreneurship. He became one of the first vendors on Shopify, and his T-shirt company became a survival tool for him in college. He realized that he could never see himself working for anyone else. Harley is now the President of Shopify and a respected entrepreneur.

He will explain why we are currently in an entrepreneurial renaissance and how to thrive in the new “connect to consumer” world.
