A Sabbatical Series Interview with Gagan Biyani

As part of a series of Sabbatical Interviews, DJ DiDonna talks with Gagan Biyani, a serial entrepreneur who used his sabbatical to live in a half dozen places around the world. In the process, he met his (now) fiancee, and hatched the idea to start a cohort education venture Maven.

DJ was first introduced to Gagan by Lenny Rachitsky, who recommended DJ for Maven’s cohort course instructor program. The Sabbatical Project will be running a cohort course on Maven’s platform in November. Tune in for more information, and to learn how Sabbaticals are used by entrepreneurs to heal, explore, and start the next thing.
