Jonathan Wolfson

CEO, Solazyme

So it’s food and fuel, not food versus fuel, which is the way a lot of people like to think about this discussion [on biofuels].

As the CEO of Solazyme, Jonathan Wolfson is working to solve some of the world’s biggest problems with one of its smallest and most ancient life forms: microalgae. The company is using a breakthrough process to revolutionize the way the world makes oil. In founding Solazyme, Wolfson brought with him experience from a variety of positions in finance, business and law, most recently that of Vice President of Finance and Business Development for 7thOnline, Inc., a supply chain software company. Immediately prior to that Mr. Wolfson was co-founder and chief operating officer of InvestorTree, Inc., a financial services software company.

Wolfson obtained a law degree from New York University School of Law and an MBA from NYU Stern School of Business.
