Olly previously launched Europe's first B Corp drinks company, Waterbomb, and co-founded the UK's leading subscription nutrition platform VITL.com.

Co-founder & CCO
Lorenzo Curci is the co-founder and CCO of Earthly. Prior to starting Earthly, Lorenzo managed a team of 30 at Credit Suisse within the Equity Derivatives division. The allure of entrepreneurial life, however, was too strong and in 2013, he started Huez, a technical cycling brand, with the aim of getting people out of cars and onto bikes.
In 2018, Lorenzo felt more could be done to address climate change and so, alongside Olly, he founded Earthly with a mission to help businesses invest in high-quality nature-based solutions.
Shelby Torrence is Chief Marketing Officer for Earthly, responsible for building brand and engagement within both the business and climate communities.
She has 15+ years of experience driving growth for large enterprises like IBM, UL, and Google and helping startups scale and reach unicorn status. Skilled at building and enabling high-performing global teams, Shelby is passionate about diversity and providing opportunities for underrepresented groups in technology.
Shelby joined Earthly in April 2022 after seeing how businesses struggle and become overwhelmed with their climate journeys led to her desire to help create effective solutions.
Jade Bouhmouch is Earthly’s CFO. Prior to Earthly, Jade was part of Google’s EMEA strategy and finance team, helping to launch the Google SDG Accelerator and Advisor programs, scaling these to support over 300 startups globally. He helped establish the Google SDG Impact Investment Fund, building on prior investment roles held at Global Sustainable Capital Management and Merrill Lynch.
Jade started his career as an entrepreneur, developing an online marketplace connecting international funders with SMEs in North Africa, where he is from. He has an MBA from INSEAD, is a CFA charter holder, and continues to contribute to African climate innovation as a Managing Partner at Ambo Ventures.
David Inkpen is CTO of Earthly, leading its product development and technical infrastructure.
With a background in physics, as well as hardware and software engineering, he has over a decade of experience leading multi-million-pound engagements with some of Europe's biggest retail and banking brands.
David joined Earthly in May 2021 and is excited to be working towards solutions to some of the biggest challenges of our generation.
The Earthly team is full of exciting individuals, experienced at delivering engaging talks, workshops and hosting panel conversations online and in-person.
On stage, we bring colourful visuals, imagery and interactive elements. We love talking about nature-based solutions and climate tech, but also have plenty to say on purpose-led business, impact investing, climate start-ups and the road to net zero.
