Emilie Mazzacurati

UNITED STATES
Four Twenty Seven
CONSULTANCY
ENVIRONMENT
Provides businesses with climate risk management tools and services.

Emilie Mazzacurati, who hails from France, was always interested in starting her own business, but the idea for Four Twenty Seven, the company she founded in 2013, grew out of a pitch she made to a now former employer. A carbon trading expert with a passion for analytics, Emilie suggested they explore potential services and business opportunities around climate adaptation. When the idea was not supported, Emilie moved ahead alone, taking an evening class in finance for entrepreneurs, writing a business plan, and eventually quitting her job to work full time on building the company.
