Danielle Walsh

Co-Founder & CEO, Clearly

Danielle started her career in Law at Marval, O'Farrell & Mairal covering cross border deals in Technology and Climate from Buenos Aires. From there she moved into Investment Banking at Singer Capital Markets in London, before joining HSBC in 2014. At HSBC she acted as Chief of Staff for the Head of Global Banking, Europe, Middle East & Africa before being mandated to build one central view on the group's $17bn technology spend globally. Upon completion, she represented the Group on Technology with the bank's multinational and institutional clients globally.

During this period it became clear that the next wave of disruption was in sustainability, and that cities and transportation were to play a major role across all industries. Working with Group Management, the Future Cities & New Industries team was formed where Danielle acted between governments, multinationals and deep technology companies globally on the transition of cleaner and safer cities and transportation. After identifying that data transparency and capital access was essential to reach this goal, Danielle founded Clearly to use data technology to help the transformation of transportation to net zero emissions.

She is a Cambridge graduate, an angel investor, VP on Digital Innovation at G20Y, and has held additional positions of governing board member of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP), and Lyra Ventures.
