On Tuesday, Nov. 17 at 3:30 p.m. ET, Harley Finkelstein, president of Shopify, joins Washington Post senior critic-at-large Robin Givhan for a one-on-one conversation.

COVID-19 forced many retailers and consumers to rethink how they sell and shop. It left millions of Americans unemployed and looking for ways to earn income. This accelerated shift to digital commerce has led to a boost in sales for Shopify.

Finkelstein says that entrepreneurs will be the force in rebuilding economies all over the world. Shopify, the marquee commerce platform, helps 1 million businesses around the world start, grow and scale their business online and offline. No matter the platform, Finkelstein says people are turning their side hustles into full-time jobs and that it is even more critical to innovate and build the tools merchants need to succeed.
