New Energy Nexus (NEX) is an international not-for-profit organization that supports clean energy entrepreneurs with funds, accelerators and networks. We started in California and have expanded operations into China, India, Southeast Asia, East and West Africa, and Australia. Our mission is to support diverse entrepreneurs to drive innovation and build equity in the global clean energy economy. Our goal is to support 100,000 startups to succeed by 2030 – a decisive decade to surface and support as many climate solutions as possible. Through our global network, we directly boost hundreds of entrepreneurs annually while uplifting thousands more. Since 2004, New Energy Nexus (up until recently known as California Clean Energy Fund) has leveraged $1.5 billion in investment, supported over 900 clean energy startups, and launched industry-leading centers for solution collaboration.


The Global Abundance Team is responsible for raising and growing funding for the organization, both from a global perspective, as well as supporting local chapters in their program-specific fundraising. As a global organization with dispersed fundraising responsibilities, relationships, and priorities, it is essential that we leverage systems and processes to coordinate our activities, provide timely reporting, and therefore benefit from our strength as a global network.

The Development Coordinator will be a connection point for our dispersed fundraising staff and will help them make the most of our fundraising tools and processes. A key responsibility that the Development Coordinator will have is managing our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system (Zendesk Sell) and producing timely and useful reports from the data in the CRM, all with a mindset of continuous improvement for maximum efficiency, effectiveness, and collaboration. Additionally, the Development Coordinator will support the Global Abundance team where possible through proposal writing/editing, event support, gift processing and donor communications.
