Who is Sahil Lavingia?
Sahil Lavingia is the CEO and founder of Gumroad, a platform to help creators create more through simple ecommerce tools. He is also a designer, writer and painter.
Sahil has gone many ups and downs in his startup career, from raising millions of dollars in venture capital and getting on the Forbes 30 under 30, at the time when every investor wanted a piece of his company, to laying off his entire company but himself, and battling with depression.
Today Gumroad is profitable and is on path to grow faster than ever, but Sahil no longer lives in San Francisco and works out of a shiny startup office. He’s moved to Provo, Utah, and among other things is always happy to share his newly found view on startups and life.
