Skyrocket to the eCommerce Finish Line

ShipHero’s Accelerator Program for eCommerce Startups

As a new eCommerce startup, you’re ready to blast your way to success and move full speed ahead. There’s only one problem - you don’t exactly know how to get there. Even the bravest rocketeers have star charts.

This is why ShipHero’s Founder and CEO, Aaron Rubin, has decided to launch the Accelerator Program for eCommerce Startups.

Like many of you, Aaron first bootstrapped his business with just $435,000 from friends and family. That was in 2013. Just 8 years later, in 2021, ShipHero received $50 million in investment capital and continues to grow.

And now, Aaron, and his team of heroes are ready to share their knowledge and expertise with an eCommerce startup just like yours.
