Ramez Naam

Clean Energy Advocate, Angel Investor, and Author

Ramez was born in Cairo, Egypt, and came to the US at the age of 3.

In his career, he first worked at Microsoft, working early versions of Microsoft Outlook, Internet Explorer, and the Bing search engine. Simultaneously, Ramez founded and ran Apex NanoTechnologies, the world’s first company devoted entirely to software tools to accelerate molecular design.

He's written five book. Nexus, Crux, and Apex (near future science fiction), The Infinite Resource: The Power of Ideas on a Finite Planet (non-fiction), and More Than Human: Embracing the Promise of Biological Enhancement (non-fiction).

Now Ramez focuses his time on climate and energy, as a frequent public speaker on the inevitability and increasing price-advantage of clean energy and as an investor in and advisor to clean energy companies or companies working to transition to a cleaner future.

In his personal life, Ramez has climbed mountains, descended into icy crevasses, chased sharks through their native domain, backpacked through remote corners of China, and ridden his bicycle down hundreds of miles of the Vietnam coast.
