The Shopify Build-A-Business competition for new Web stores today announced the winner of its $100,000 grand prize.
The store that achieved the highest revenue total during any two consecutive months from January to June – using Shopify’s e-commerce platform to sell its wares – was San Francisco-based DODOcase, makers of protective cases for the Apple iPad that have the look and feel of a luxury, hardcover notebook.
DODOcase was founded by friends who met while training for the 2005 Iron Man Canada triathlon: Patrick Buckley, the chief executive, and Craig Dalton, the president and business development director (based on the since-corrected recollection of one of the co-founders, a previous version of this post gave a different year for the triathlon). Both are serial entrepreneurs.
The company, which plans to continue manufacturing its product and creating jobs in San Francisco, received more than 10,000 orders within a few months of the iPad’s debut.
The DODOcase costs about $59.95, so you can do the math. Amazing!
