Meet the Canadian software company that helped Kylie Jenner reportedly make almost a billion dollars

Meet the Canadian software company behind Kylie Cosmetics

Social media star Kylie Jenner made headlines in July after Forbes magazine reported she was on track to become the youngest-ever self-made billionaire. Her company, Kylie Cosmetics, which is less than 2 years old, is already worth about $800 million, Forbes wrote.

Jenner doesn't employ hundreds of people or dish out insane sums of money for physical retail space. Instead, she uses the Canadian e-commerce platform Shopify to manage her business and host her website. Shopify, which is also used by companies like Tesla, Nestle and Budweiser, is a software as a service e-commerce platform — so businesses are provided with unlimited bandwidth and don't need to hire a web developer.
