Age: 28 Founder and CEO, Endera

- —Eliza Haverstock and Chris Helman

The challenge for electricve­hicle maker Endera is not finding new customers—it’s building fast enough to satisfy demand. Walsh already has orders for 2,000 of his all-electric vans, jitneys and delivery trucks worth $400 million. “I believe that the clean-energy movement was catalyzed by the pandemic,” he says. “Capital markets have shifted, and clean energy is becoming economical­ly viable.” Aside from having the company’s name on the grille, Endera’s vehicles look nearly indistingu­ishable from standard-issue gas guzzlers on the road today. And that’s the point—to provide customers a seamless transition to electrifie­d transporta­tion.
