CEO & Co-Founder
Laura Zapata is the CEO & Co-Founder of Clearloop, the climate solutions platform that helps organizations of all sizes—from small and medium sized-businesses to Fortune 50 companies to universities—tackle their carbon footprint and expand access to clean energy. Laura is a staunch advocate for accelerating grid decarbonization by investing in communities—like her own—that can benefit the most from the environmental, health, and economic benefits of new solar projects. Laura built Clearloop, now a Silicon Ranch Company, to capture the broader purchasing power of organizations seeking to invest in tangible climate action and unlock innovative funding mechanisms to bring clean energy projects to life more equitably across the country. Prior to starting Clearloop, Laura spent her career in hard-charging organizations across government and technology. Laura immigrated from Colombia with her family and grew up in Memphis, Tennessee. Laura graduated from Dartmouth College and lives in Nashville with her husband.
