Jemma GreenJemma Green

Executive Chairman & Co-founder at Power Ledger

After completing a degree in finance, Jemma started her career in banking at J.P. Morgan in London.

While there, she saw first hand the dilemmas and problems that came with bringing corporate social responsibility to the business world.

After a decade in the UK, Green returned home to Perth to pursue a doctorate at Curtin University in electricity market disruption, which she completed in 2017.

This work turned out to be the perfect segue to starting up her own business, a blockchain powered peer to peer energy and carbon credit trading platform called Power Ledger. The company is four years old and has projects in the US, Japan, Europe, Thailand and Australia.
Jemma is an expert in residence at Curtin University helping with commercialisation of technology and the startup ecosystem. She also serves on the board of Water Corporation.

Somehow she found time to become Deputy Lord Mayor of the City of Perth and a mother of three children. Jemma helped set up Australia’s first fossil fuel-free superannuation fund‎ and has sat on numerous boards championing sustainable business.

She gives regular talks on technology and leadership in business and recently received the EY Fintech Entrepreneur of the Year award.

She lives in Perth, Western Australia and invents Italian style dishes for relaxation.
