Graham Smith founded Open Energy with a vision to unlock the capital needed to drive growth in the commercial solar sector through innovative financial technology. Graham started his career in finance as a management consultant in London at Deloitte and Andersen Consulting before breaking into entrepreneurship with his first two startups: Axiom Global in 2004 and then Phoenix Partners Group in 2006. During his seven years co-running Phoenix, Graham started and managed Greekworks Capital, a renewable energy advisory business, and secured $75 million of construction finance for 15 MW of some of the United Kingdom’s first utility-scale solar projects.
