Meet Pinterest Designer Sahil Lavingia at a Speaker and Networking Night
He's 19 years old. Venture companies just gave him $7 million to start his own company. Join us for a moderated conversation and audience Q&A with Pinterest designer and Gumroad founder, Sahil Lavingia.Pinterest is the third most-popular social medium after Twitter and Facebook. Sahil Lavingia, who helped to create the sizzling hot virtual pinboard when he was only 18, has now focused his talents onto another project -- Gumroad. The new startup allows you to sell things you make directly to your followers.
"I'm just a 19-year old kid that likes building things. I design and code and all that fun stuff," says Lavingia. "I like to say that I fulfill needs and wants for fun and profit."
