Renowned Social Entrepreneur and Youth Organizer
Billy Parish is the founder and president of Mosaic, an online platform which connects investors to high quality solar projects. Their mission is to open up clean energy investing and fundamentally change the way energy is financed. Believing that people can have meaningful careers AND financial autonomy, Parish shares the wisdom outlined in his book (co-authored with Dev Ajula) Making Good: Finding Meaning, Money, and Community in a Changing World to show others how they can find and create jobs that bring both satisfaction and a pay cheque.
In 2002, Parish co-founded and grew the Energy Action Coalition into the largest youth organization in the world focused on clean energy and climate solutions.
He developed a proposal to create a Clean Energy Corps to produce 5 million green jobs, which shaped the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the largest green investment in US history.
He has been honored as a Rolling Stone magazine “Climate Hero,” an Utne Reader “50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World” and was elected as a Fellow by Ashoka, the global association of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs.
