In episode 42 of the Investing in Impact podcast, I speak with Alessa Berg, Founder and CEO of Top Tier Impact, on the future of carbon credits, ESG, web3 and its place in the paradigm shift of impact investing.
Alessa is an entrepreneur, investor and advisor to funds and companies. Her thought leadership sits at the intersection of positive impact and emerging technologies.
Alessa was born in Switzerland and is fluent in 6 languages. During high school, she started focusing on neuroscience while working as a windsurf and snowboard instructor on the side.
