On the 8th of October 2018, I gave a 4 hour workshop at the Shopify Pursuit event in Berlin. The workshop was titled "Lessons learned building a business on Shopify". It covers everything I've learned over the past 6 years building apps on the Shopify platform.
You'll receive a 138 page PDF file of the workshop slides, slightly revised to remove sensitive info.
I love sharing with the community, but please do not copy, forward, share online or distribute without my consent.
Thank you and enjoy :)
FORSBERG+two is a development and design studio based in Copenhagen Denmark, with expertise in Shopify apps.
Hey, my name is Björn and I originally started FORSBERG+two in 2011 as a side project to my full-time work at an investment bank. After a few years of good growth and learning what to (and what not to) do, I was able to make the leap to working on Shopify apps full-time.
The focus has always been web applications and e-commerce, with expertise in Shopify apps. Currently I have 4 Shopify apps that have helped over 50,000+ merchants. At the end of 2017 I also won a Shopify Commerce Award for the OrderlyEmails app.
I'm a company of one by design, so you'll find me doing everything from design, development, marketing .. as well as ongoing customer support.
I love to share what I know about building apps for Shopify, as well as my entrepreneurial journey. You'll find a collection of conference talks, podcast interviews and workshops I've been asked to hold in the "Building apps" section of the blog:
I am always interested to hear from fellow entrepreneurs, so do feel free to get in contact.

Ps. People often ask what does the "+two" in the company name mean. It was originally named like that for my wife and daughter (they’re the +two) but now we also have a little boy, so it really should be +three.
