Jessica Verhagen

VP Business Development & Strategy

Jessica is responsible for helping to shape the emerging markets for eco commodities and strategic sales.

She’s been at the intersection of environment and finance for over a decade, working in the British Columbia government designing some of North America’s first carbon pricing mechanisms. She then worked with the founding team to launch Evok Innovations, a private sector $100 million fund that invests in clean technologies to reduce greenhouse gases, followed by rolling up her sleeves in a cleantech startup to raise capital and develop the go to market strategy.

Jessica also loves traveling, hiking, squeezing in as many yoga classes as she can and reading some pretty nerdy books.
