Payal Kadakia

Season 3, Episode 10 of 10

Founder of ClassPass. Location: Javier's, Century City, CA. Payal Kadakia was a world-class dancer whose passion for Bollywood dance inspired her to create her own dance troupe. Meanwhile, her job in management consulting left her less than inspired. That's when she got the idea to build a directory of dance fitness classes like OpenTable. While she lacked the funding and know-how to build something of scale, Payal's journey to build and create ClassPass, and then scale it into a billion-dollar company, is an epic one. Over the flavors of her favorite restaurant, Javier's in Century City, California, Payal shares the many setbacks along her way to success and her vision for the future of her company as she works to rebuild post-pandemic.
