Neel Patel


I was born in India and lived there for nine years before moving to Canada. Having family in various parts of the world has allowed me to spend considerable time in many parts of Europe and Dubai.

Prior to White Star Capital, I graduated from Ivey Business School. From there, I briefly dipped my feet into investment banking at National Bank in Toronto. Ultimately leaving to start a DTC skincare brand, that continues to operate, focused on solutions for dark spots and hyperpigmentation. This venture provided me with the utmost appreciation for founders that traverse on the journey to building businesses of great value.

Meeting with founders with a burning desire is always inspiring. What excites me most is to work alongside founders to navigate the highs and lows and figure out how we can help them achieve their mission.

In my free time, I enjoy playing and watching tennis, F1, and boxing. I am an avid supporter of Rafael Nadal, Lewis Hamilton, and Canelo. You can always find me putting time in on the tennis courts in the summer.

I’m fascinated by the process of what allows athletes, artists, and musicians to perform at the highest level – and so I tend to watch a lot of documentaries exploring this. My favourites are The Last Dance and The Playbook.
