Rahul Parekh

Principal

London

Being able to work with founders that are solving the world’s biggest problems is amazing. I’m particularly excited about the climate fintech sector and its potential to speed up decarbonisation within the urban environment

Rahul has been on both sides of the table having founded and exited a VC-backed business. Before joining 2150, Rahul co-founded EatFirst, which he ran as CEO for several years before the company was acquired in 2020. He was also a managing director in Rocket Internet’s investment team, focussed primarily on urban mobile on-demand businesses. He began his career at Goldman Sachs, where he spent eight years as an executive director in equity derivatives trading.

Rahul graduated from the University of Cambridge with an M.A. in economics. He became passionate about sustainability after studying the impact of mass-urbanisation on living standards in developing countries and then witnessing this first-hand during a trip to India in 2007.

Rahul’s personal commitment to sustainability in 2021 is to switch to 100% renewable energy at home.
