I am professional with 15 years experience in business, finance, climate change policy and academia. I am also an angel investor in a variety of green and social start-ups (forestry in Peru, biomass in Sri Lanka, clean energy in Africa, hydro in the UK). I have strong business management and technical and analytic skills, developed from working in several start-up businesses, the UK Government and in equity hedge funds. I speak Spanish, French and English.
After more than 5 years working for and with "green" start-ups, and having developed additional hands-on and managerial skills, I have decided to set up my own venture to crack the distribution challenge in (some?) rural emerging countries. My most recent past experience was being a manager at BBOXX, a provider of off-grid energy products. I managed a team across Rwanda, Kenya and Uganda that distributed and financed solar home systems and appliances to rural households. I have also worked in policy and the City of London.
