Shore Projects wins e-commerce competition

Shore Projects has been named as one of six winners in an eight-month online retail competition, winning a mentoring trip to Sir Richard Branson’s private island.

The Build a Business Competition, staged by cloud-based commerce platform Shopify, saw tens of thousands of new businesses founded and generated over four million orders worth $250m.

The British seaside-inspired watch brand, founded by friends Jono Holt, James Street and Neil Waller, placed in the top six for overall sales on the platform over a two-month period.
As such they are in line for a five-day trip to Branson’s Necker Island by private jet, where they will be mentored by Branson, Seth Godin, Daymond John, Marie Forleo and Tim Ferriss.
