Rachel Cohen


Co-Founder & Co-CEO
Rachel is an entrepreneur with a passion for design and a penchant for lifestyle brand-building.

Prior to founding SNOWE, Rachel worked in real estate investment banking at BGC Partners, advising hotel and lifestyle clients on strategic opportunities and capital raising. She also managed a boutique co-working space subsidiary of SL Green, Manhattan’s top real estate investment trust. It was her passion and penchant for design and fashion finds that led her to co-found her first company, Haat Couture, a retail concept selling luxury-quality, affordable Indian formal wear in the U.S.

Rachel began SNOWE with co-founder Andres Modak after moving back to New York City from grad school. Both were unhappy with the disposable quality of mass-produced homewares that were available and believed that there was a gap to be filled between mass-market quality and high-end luxury, which ultimately drove them to launch SNOWE.

Rachel holds a B.A. in Economics from the University of Michigan and an MBA from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
