Rachel Holt Board Member

I love founders who aren’t tak­ing the easy road. I know first­hand that it takes a dif­fer­ent kind of entre­pre­neur and team, and a dif­fer­ent kind of investor to nav­i­gate the chal­lenges and oppor­tu­ni­ties of the real world and am inspired by those who set out on that jour­ney.”

As an oper­a­tor, Rachel had a pas­sion for growth and has man­aged almost every func­tion from oper­a­tions to mar­ket­ing, engi­neer­ing, prod­uct, and cus­tomer sup­port teams. Rachel co-found­ed Con­struct Cap­i­tal to bring that expe­ri­ence to ear­ly stage invest­ing, sup­port­ing founders as they set out, and to build hyper scale. Before leav­ing Uber in 2020, Rachel was a long-time mem­ber of Uber’s Exec­u­tive Lead­er­ship Team hav­ing spent almost a decade at the com­pa­ny. She began as one of the company’s first 30 employ­ees and her role quick­ly expand­ed to run­ning the US & Cana­da Rides busi­ness in addi­tion to Glob­al Mar­ket­ing and Brand, and Cus­tomer Oper­a­tions, which rep­re­sent­ed near­ly half of Uber’s book­ings, and just under half of the employ­ees. Rachel then led the com­pa­ny’s New Mobil­i­ty orga­ni­za­tion, which includes the JUMP eBike and eScoot­er busi­ness­es as well as run­ning Uber’s Incu­ba­tor which funds and devel­ops new prod­ucts and ser­vices on the Uber platform.

Before launch­ing Con­struct, Rachel invest­ed in com­pa­nies such as Cal­i­brate, Urbanstems, and Cari­bou, where she serves on the board today. Rachel began her career at Bain & Com­pa­ny. She grad­u­at­ed magna cum laude from Amherst Col­lege as a 4‑year All-Amer­i­can ten­nis play­er and earned her MBA from Stan­ford Uni­ver­si­ty, where she was an Arjay Miller Schol­ar. She was fea­tured on Fortune’s 40 under 40 and was named by Fast Com­pa­ny as One of the Most Cre­ative Peo­ple in Busi­ness. Rachel is a native New York­er, and Mom of 3.
