Partner League Round-up
Welcome to Partner League Round-up #3
Hope you’re having a great weekend!
Third issue, served.
This is becoming an exercise in consistency for me. So far so good. This week the links shared under Learn are a bit different and meant to bend your brain away from eCommerce/Shopify, but still within the realm of our work. The Member Content and Community Links will get you all caught up on what went down this week!
Next week, I’d like to include a section for Shopify partners raising early stage rounds. If you, or anyone you know is raising early stage money from strategic angels, please let me know so I can highlight them.
If you’re not a Partner League member yet, join us or book a call with me to learn more about how our community is helping members accelerate growth through networking, partnerships, and peer support.

New Members
Welcome to our newest Partner League members. Be sure to say hello in the intros channel!
New members + intros:
  1. Gen Furukawa - Prehook
  2. Liam Sarsfield - Fluorescent
  3. Dean Shapero - Invisit
  4. Andrew Forman - Givz
  5. Ben Fisher - Rodeo
  6. Mohamed Fergany - ConvertedIn
If you’ve been in the community for a while, feel free to re-introduce yourself if your projects have progressed or your role has changed! Fresh re-intros are a good way to catch the attention of newer members. If you’re not engaged in your communities at least every couple of weeks, you simply won’t get the best of them.
Note: Last week I mentioned that we started development of our member directory and shared a screenshot of the member profile page. Here’s another screenshot, this time of the Requests area - the Request form is designed to create Help Requests - for support on any pain point, and Collaboration Requests - for partnership projects that need input or invite collaboration from other members. These requests will also feed into Slack.

The future is only going to get weirder and my only advice is to accept that and approach these fundamental shifts with an open mind.
