Jeremy Wood grew up in Portland, and has been heavily influenced by that upbringing. He enjoyed really strong maker communities, supporting local craft artists to thrive and build their business. He moved to the Bay Area for school, and was surrounding by optimism, tech focus, and sheer intelligence. I was under the impression that Portland was beautiful all year round, but Jeremy clued me in that 3 months out of the year, it’s a drizzly, soggy mess.
As I mentioned, Jeremy was really into the craft builder community, which also led him to be interested in eCommerce. He observed Shopify grow as a marketplace, that made things so easy to launch a store. What he figured out was that there was a need for these store owners to offload and sell their store.
This is the creation story of Openstore.
