Age: 28 Founder and CEO, Endera
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.
