Meet Katherine Hague from ShopLocket – our 3/20 presenter. Katherine oversees the day-to-day ops of Toronto-based ShopLocket and makes sure customers keep coming back to their service(aka Biz Dev). ShopLocket lets anyone start selling professionally online in minutes. Simply publish a product, embed it in any website, Facebook page, or blog post, and start seeing the green pile – well, maybe start to mound at the very least.
“ShopLocket was born out of an opportunity that I saw in the market while developing themes for Shopify. I realized that as awesome as storefront solutions are they require you to leave behind whatever platform you had originally been using and start from scratch. Quick alternatives like PayPal buy buttons and marketplaces just seemed unprofessional.”

Gamers – watch out! You will probably see them on iPad – Tall & Grande and Android in the future.
“we heard from the development community… We want MORE! Developers told us that they wanted more inputs from the case into the phone. We created Sensus.”
