President, and Chief Operating Officer, Isaac Benjamin Voss
Since originally entering the clean technology industry in 2001, Isaac has helped lead investment into - and grow a number of winning companies, many of them in the clean energy sector. His time at the venture fund Cleantech Venture Capital, further expanded his sector-specific knowledge and experience. It was while with the fund that Isaac and the XFuels technology team first began working together, and he has since helped grow the original XFuels operation from an unknown small town America start-up, to a company now in demand on every continent. As President, he is responsible for the external matters of XFuels; building partnerships and broader business relationships, government outreach and brand & identity thought leadership, as well as advising the CEO and senior leadership on business, strategic, and policy issues.
From 2008 - 2015, Isaac served as Cleantech Venture Capital's EIR (Entrepreneur-in-Residence), leading the management of all matters related to seed fund start-ups, and overseeing portfolio company grooming, technical, and business strategy matters alongside company founders. His financial transaction experience includes: corporate and partnership formations, debt and equity structuring - including hybrid financing structures, joint venture agreements, business combinations (including asset acquisitions, stock purchases, stock for stock deals and statutory mergers). Under his leadership, and while working with the firm, XFuels has dramatically scaled its corporate and talent infrastructure, and increased market penetration around the globe.
Prior to his time at Cleantech VC, Isaac helped create, lead and foster the development of a broader portfolio of companies in the software, financial, and tech space. After first logging onto the internet in 1993 (his junior year in high school), Isaac chose to skip college, and devote his life to "advancements in technology that would improve life for all people everywhere." His industry experience includes: energy and private utilities, manufacturing, engineering, software development, and brand & identity design and consultancy. Previously he served on the research staff teams at Global Industries (high-tech manufacturing), and General Energy Advisors (broad EPC project development). Today Isaac chairs the board of the BioPetroleum Research Foundation, and since 1994 has been the trustee of the Institute for Global Knowledge & Citizenship.
