- TitleCofounder and CEO
David Rogier is the CEO and cofounder of MasterClass—the online-learning platform where you can learn skateboarding from Tony Hawk, filmmaking from Martin Scorsese, and photography from Annie Leibovitz. MasterClass is slick and highly produced, and it carries classes from the biggest names in their respective industries for a $180-per-year subscription. Rogier came up with the idea for MasterClass while an MBA student at Stanford University and built it out with a $400,000 seed investment from Michael Dearing of Harrison Metal. The company has since raised $240 million and is valued at more than $800 million.
