William Pearson

William’s interest lies at the intersection of entrepreneurship, social impact, and
environmental preservation. He was recently awarded Forbes 30 under 30 and has also been
selected as one of Norway’s top leaders under 30 for his work pursuing the sustainable
development goals. After completing his undergraduate degree in engineering, William
spent a year working at sea in the Indian Ocean, where he saw first hand the current state of
pollution in the world’s oceans. William decided to pursue a graduate degree in Management
from London Business School to prepare him for a career in environmental impact and
business, which gave him the foundation necessary to launch the Ocean Bottle and was also
where he met the rest of the team. William is no stranger to working in sustainability-focused
businesses, with experience in product development, renewable energy and eco products,
including the development of an atomically thin solar cell for his engineering thesis.
