Meet Our Founder & CEO
Rahul is a health-tech optimist, serial entrepreneur, and biomedical engineer. His affinity for (sensible) innovation is only challenged by his predilection for building customer-obsessed companies. He's a dream-catcher with unbridled curiosity and a strong operator who enjoys delivering value in large markets ripe for change. Humble beginnings keep him anchored.
Rahul has spent the better half of this decade researching, developing, and commercializing products for ophthalmic and optometric applications. Through this journey, he's had the privilege of collaborating with respected institutions and distinguished leaders within our field and beyond. His foray into vision care (besides receiving his first eyeglass prescription in primary school) began at EyeGate Pharma. Back then, it was an early-stage biotech company using transscleral iontophoresis to administer optimal levels of therapeutic drug into targeted ocular tissue. One application of such technology is tackling anterior uveitis with improved bioavailability and reduced frequency of dosages. There he learned the sobering reality of startups and what it takes to bring medical breakthroughs to market. Today, EyeGate Pharma is publicly traded (NASDAQ: EYEG) with a second product in the pipeline that leverages CMHA-S (cross-linked hydrogel polymers) via topically-applied drops to manage corneal epithelial defects.
More recently, Rahul was the director and founding member of EyeNetra – an MIT Media Lab spinout recognized worldwide for pioneering smartphone-powered refractions to serve the 4.5B individuals in need of vision correction. It's commonly cited that more than half of said populace remains uncorrected to this day. At EyeNetra, he contributed to the development of 4 products from inception, honed their G2M strategy, and architected a successful platform for global growth. Thousands of units were both sold and shipped to ECP’s in over 90 countries within a span of 36 months. By maintaining lean operations, the company eventually became cash flow positive – a rarity at the intersection of hardware, software, and healthcare in an overcapitalized climate. The team also explored a first of its kind model for teleoptometry and spent years in deep R&D, clinical trials, regulatory approvals, and manufacturing prior to commercialization. Confronted along the way were countless moments fraught with uncertainty including an abundance of failures. To-date, this technology suite has facilitated 5 million refractions and a quarter-million connected exams (and counting). It would be remiss not to mention the smiles conjured of millions more from the friends, families, and caretakers of patients.
EyeNetra is backed by an eponymous Silicon Valley investor alongside the largest vision insurance provider in the US. As they continue to scale, Rahul is thrilled to take a step backwards and announce his next chapter with the launch of Envision. Message us today to share your feedback, ideas, and stories. We'd love to hear from you!
