Lauren FlanaganCEO and Co-founderSesame Solar

A lifelong entrepreneur, Lauren Flanagan is an early SaaS pioneer who worked with Steve Jobs at NeXT and Apple as a leading software developer. After witnessing the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, she was inspired to start her 5th company, Sesame Solar, the maker of the world’s first 100% Renewable Mobile Nanogrid. Using solar and green hydrogen, the Mobile Nanogrids generate clean, off-grid power and can be quickly deployed to provide power, communications and clean water to communities impacted by a disaster or power grid outage. The Mobile Nanogrids come ready to use to meet essential services and emergency response needs across a variety of scenarios, and most importantly, they are 100% fossil fuel-free.
