Shaping Finance for the Decisive Decade

The transition to clean energy is an existential necessity for humankind, and a once-in-a-generation opportunity to reshape our global economy.

The next 10 years are crucial.

The great news is that we have the technology we need to get us there, and it is ready to scale. The challenge?

The global financial system is designed for and invested in yesterday’s energy infrastructure. It’s not equipped to fund and take advantage of today’s energy opportunities.

That’s why we started EZRA – a climate venture studio with a combination of fintech expertise, energy industry connections, company building experience, and one mission – to design and build the 21st century finance companies and products that will help unleash the full potential of the clean economy.
