Tobi Lutke

CEO of Shopify

Tobi Lutke is a Canadian billionaire entrepreneur and co-founder of Shopify. In 2004, Tobi built an online snowboard store called Snowdevil with co-founders Daniel Weinand and Scott Lake.

After discovering the pains of building an e-commerce checkout feature, Snowdevil rebranded and became Shopify in 2006. Instead of selling snowboards online, Shopify's single focus became helping all businesses sell online.

Since 2006, Tobi has grown the small Ottawa-based e-commerce startup into Canada's largest company. Below is a list of the books Tobi has recommended over the years.
