Shogun, and we’re on a mission to help people create the best eCommerce experiences in the world.
We’re a graduate of the Winter 2018 batch of Y-Combinator, we just recently raised a Series A round, we have over 14,000 active paying clients, and we’re preparing to launch a new product in 2020 called Shogun Frontend (you can read more about that in TechCrunch).
