About Her Business & Career: Once upon a time, Kwak was an artist, owning studios, serving as a stage manager, founding an arts nonprofit and freelancing as a graphic designer and photographer. But that’s not why Kwak is on our list. Today, Kwak is known for her work in climate solutions and sustainability, not least of all through her company 10Power. A certified B Corp, 10Power seeks to democratize renewable energy in Haiti by financing solar projects and collaborating with local partners to make them a reality.
