Pierre Moses 2004

Associate at IronOak Energy and President of Tulane Entrepreneur Association
Pierre Moses 2004 is a Senior Associate at IronOak Energy, an investment advisory and market research firm focused exclusively on solar PV, energy storage, and electric vehicle infrastructure. Pierre graduated from the College of Charleston in 2008 with a B.S. in Business Administration and a concentration in social entrepreneurship. He returned to New Orleans and began an internship with Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Foundation. Quickly recognizing the lack of third-party financing in the local solar energy market, Pierre started Make It Right Solar, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Make It Right Foundation. Make It Right Solar predominantly provided solar development and financing services to low-income housing markets to make solar a cost effective resource. Make It Right Solar raised $7.5 million and completed more than 250 projects in New Orleans, Kansas City, and Newark, including more than 130 LEED Platinum projects. In 2012, Pierre was one of the founding board members of the Gulf States Renewable Energy Industries Association which encourages the development of a renewable energy economy through informed policy intervention, stakeholder education, and industry support. In 2014, Moses was recognized by Gambit Magazine’s “40 Under 40” issue as a young New Orleanian who is “making the city a better place.” Pierre completed Tulane's MBA program in 2016 where he focused on analytics and finance and was the President of the Tulane Entrepreneur Association. While pursuing his masters, Pierre worked in Raleigh, NC, for Cherokee Investment Partners, a $2.2 billion private equity and venture capital fund focused on brownfield redevelopment.
