Neel Patel

Senior Accountant (UK)

Neel is a Senior Accountant at Darién Advisors. He is a qualified management accountant with over 11 years of experience in commercial accounting. He has worked for various British fintechs and travel companies, mainly focusing on e-commerce. He thrives on business partnering to help drive results instead of just balancing the books after the fact. Neel fell down the crypto rabbit hole in early 2017 after reading an article in the Economist (of all places!) about the Gnosis crowdsale. This led him to research Ethereum and he never looked back.


What does Neel jam on? All things Ethereum! DeFi, L2, NFTs and recently, Regen (opposed to degen) finance. Give me a shout if you are interested in funding public goods!


Education: Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) in the UK


Currently: Lives as a nomad with his girlfriend and will be spending the first half of 2022 in Europe before heading to the Far East in Q3 to chase the sun.


Past: Lived and worked in the UK for the whole of his life prior to 2022. Working in the travel industry got him hooked on travelling so now living as a nomad is a dream come true.
