Rahul Anand

Founder & CEO, Hopscotch


Hopscotch is India’s leading kids' fashion brand. Rahul is on a mission to make kids' fashion accessible to every parent in India, offering unparalleled value in terms of selection, accessibility, and quality. Under his leadership, Hopscotch has grown exponentially (40% YOY), while turning profitable. As India emerges as a hub for brands with strong global appeal, Rahul believes there is huge potential to build a homegrown kids brand to serve value-conscious consumers, both in India and across the world. Prior to Hopscotch, Rahul worked with Diapers.com - a U.S.-based online retailer for kids' products, which was later acquired by Amazon. He has a dual engineering major from the University of Michigan and an MBA from the Harvard Business School. On the personal front, Rahul has been an avid classical pianist for over 35 years and actively enjoys squash and yoga.
