I knew I was onto something with ClassPass when…

I was standing in my own elevator when a few girls walked in and started talking about ClassPass and how excited they were about it. It was a very surreal experience.

Entrepreneurs seeking investors should…

Get your product out into the market to see how people respond — that is more important than getting the name right or finding a lawyer. You need to make sure people are receptive to your idea.

Advice I would give to an entrepreneur…

Surround yourself only with people who lift you higher. Every day is a challenge and you need inspiring energy around you to keep going!

Top qualities I look for when hiring…

Positivity! We are in the business of making a positive impact on people’s lives, so it’s so important that our employees themselves reflect our company’s ethos.

How I created a network of support…

I’ve always been attracted to creative-driven people, and having a network of friends and family who are doing incredible things continues to inspire me.

How I overcome failure…

I run straight into my fears, because that’s how you figure out what to do next. It’s more valuable to fail and learn from it than to not take action at all. It gets easier every time.

Best piece of advice I have received…

My father taught me that the only thing constant is change so learn to be flexible.

My mentor is…

Anjula Acharia-Bath, an entrepreneur, philanthropist and angel investor. She has been a long time supporter and mentor of mine.

She taught me…

To keep fighting for whatever I believed in and to make it happen no matter what it takes.

I stay organized bY…

Literally scheduling everything, even my relaxation time. My Gmail calendar is my magic app!
