If you run your own ecommerce business and are interested in connecting with other entrepreneurs and ecommerce professionals, then we cordially invite you to join the Berlin Shopify Meetups group.
Launched in 2017, our quarterly meetups have become a great place to learn and socialise, and we're proud of the generous community that has grown around them, with members regularly contributing through keynote presentations and other community initiatives like the Berlin Buddy Program, a partnership scheme for ecommerce entrepreneurs to learn from each other.
How You Can Join
We've tried to make it as easy as possible for new business owners to join our community – you can sign up to our mailing list to stay informed about our latest events, join our Facebook group for updates and discussions, or follow us on Twitter via @emma_englishby and @JoyOfFruition.

SHOPIFY MERCHANTS BUDDY PROGRAMME
Applications currently closed! We will be accepting new applications in early 2018, so please sign up to our mailing list below if you'd like to be kept informed.
Starting your online retail business can be quite overwhelming. Using Shopify as your platform solves some problems, but there are still so, so many questions...
How do I set up my website and Facebook pixel?
How do I get my shipping shorted, and with who?
How do I register my business in Germany?
Where do I start with Google Analytics?
Facebook advertising? Help!
Google AdWords? What?
It's easy to get buried in all those new questions.
So imagine if you had a buddy who was going through all these same questions at the same time as you? Both researching and solving problems then sharing what you have learned.
Someone who you could help with what you have found out, and who could help you in return with their own knowledge, simply because you are on the same journey together.
This is what we hope to create with the Berlin Shopify Meetup's "Merchants Buddy Programme". In our Meetup community we recognise that it can be a hard hill to climb alone to build your business, and that many of the professional services offered are just out of your budget for now.
So we wanted to create a programme where we can buddy you with another Shopify Merchant who is in the same position as you. Maybe one of you is ahead of the game on Facebook advertising and can help the other? Maybe the other is already well-researched in Shipping solutions and can return the support?
This is the concept that we would like to bring into our Berlin Shopify Meetup community. If you apply, we will work to pair you up with someone who can be a good buddy to you on this journey. Someone you can lean on and help out in equal measure.
Interested? Just sign up to our mailing list, and we’ll let you know once applications re-open.
This is a completely free service and is not attached to any company or product. It's a community-based initiative from the members of Berlin Shopify MeetUp.
Who We Are
Meet your hosts, Emma Englishby & Nicholas Kelly. We're two solo web designers and developers who joined forces in January 2017 to run these meetups and engage with the Shopify community here in Berlin.
Get In Touch
Interested in speaking at future event? Or maybe you just have questions or feedback for us? Simply fill in our contact form and we'll be in touch as soon as possible!
Please be aware that as we run these meetups voluntarily, and both run full time businesses, it may be a few days before we can get back to you. Thanks in advance for patience!
Also, if your question is of general interest, please consider posting in the Facebook group instead, so everyone can benefit.
