Soccer, Mining, and Investing: Ashley Grosh of Breakthrough Energy Fellows
06.09.2022 - By PlanetGeo: The Geology Podcast
After Listening back on this episode (both the short and the full interview), my wife and I had a conversation. I asked her what she thought. Her reply was that she was full of hope after listening. Join us as we have an incredible conversation with Ashley Grosh. She is Vice President of the Breakthrough Energy Fellows program which is designed to find and fund innovators working to bring climate technology solutions to the market. She worked at Wells Fargo for 15 years where she managed a $100 million impact program and was largely involved as a thought leader in the company's overall ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) and sustainable finance strategies and commitments.
Ashely is a former athlete and avid sports fan. She played Division 1 soccer for University of Colorado. She now coaches soccer for Colorado Elevation FC - academy soccer program.
Team sports, and the lessons one can learn, have always been a huge part of her life. In the Short episode, Ashley talks about the parallels between team sports and professional teams. She also wanted to sneak in some geology to the conversation by talking about a new way to mine from the seafloor. Here is the link that was alluded to in the episode: https://impossiblemining.com/
