About Us

At AllTakes, our mission is to empower people to live their best lives by discovering activities and sharing skills while creating meaningful connections.

We are creating an online universe that supports women entrepreneurs (aka “guides”) to build community-oriented businesses where people engage in activities that have a positive impact on their lives. Guides range from business coaches and meditation practitioners to chefs, dating gurus and art teachers - all helping people participate in a variety of experiences that are mindful and fulfilling.

We are taking the real world online: making main street global. Guides can build studios that they own and operate, much like they would manage their shop on main street. For users, we foster safe and inclusive communities, where they get to know people to exchange ideas and discover new experiences - much like you would in a real life neighborhood.

As we live more of our lives online, our north star is to make sure that the “future of life” is fulfilling, safe and fun - and we do this by blending the power of technology with the sensibilities of real-life connection.

AllTakes is founded by leaders from Google, YouTube, LinkedIn & Amazon. We are backed by marquee investors including General Catalyst, Bling, DCM and Treble.
