Business Week 2022 Events

Why is it called Business Week if it's made up of 10 events over more than a month? Because it used to be all packed into one week!

Koenraad Driessens

Koenraad Driessens, Director — Denham Capital Management LP

Keynote & Networking Event

Tuesday, March 1, 2022
5-8:00 p.m.

The world’s shift to clean energy will require significant financial investments. Koenraad (Koen) Driessens ’91 is a Director at Denham Capital, an investment firm that puts private dollars to work building sustainable, low-cost power solutions around the globe. Koen works to find, analyze, and execute sustainable infrastructure projects, with a special focus on the African continent. Koen understands the interconnectedness of climate change, biodiversity, human rights and emerging market development goals and works hard to ensure that the companies and projects he finances are developed in a way that is both environmentally and socially responsible.

Koen's talk, "Power In Africa - Doing Well by Doing Good" will focus on how today’s investors are interested in not only a good return on their money, but also a positive social and environmental benefit, and how this shift is having an impact around the world.

Prior to joining Denham, Koen served as a Senior Analyst at Sowood Capital Management where he focused on US power acquisitions. Prior to that he was a Senior Analyst at Capstone Global Energy providing power market consulting services to one of the largest utilities in Germany. Previously, he was a Business Analyst at SKF in Brussels, Belgium and an energy economist at Laurits R. Christensen Associates in Madison, WI.

Koen is fluent in Dutch and conversant in French and German. He received a Bachelor of Science from UW – Green Bay and a Master of Science in Applied Economics from Marquette University.
