Co-founder & CCO

Lorenzo Curci

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.

Want our take?

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.
