VENTURE HEADLINER Event
Join us for a moderated conversation and audience Q&A with Pinterest designer, Sahil Lavingia, who will be visiting Chicago from Silicon Valley.
Pinterest is the third most-popular social medium after Twitter and Facebook. Lavingia, who helped to create the sizzling-hot virtual pinboard when he was only 18, is now focusing his talents onto another project. Venture firms just gave him $7 million to start his own company, Gumroad, an innovative social shopping and e-commerce startup.
