Riean's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped a small renewable energy company grow it's electric car-sharing fleet on Turo.


Riean's story

I am the managing member of Truss Bridge Energy LLC. I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia where I spent my life committed to community development and civic engagement. I received a Bachelor's degree in Political Science from the Univ. of West Georgia in 2007 and a Law Degree from Louisiana State Univ. in 2012. Immediately after graduating from LSU, I entered the energy industry. During my 9+ years of experience, I have helped develop vast portfolios of energy projects across the U.S. Early in my career, I recognized how little African Americans and other minorities participate in the energy development industry. Since that time, I have sought opportunities to educate minority groups and share career opportunities in the energy industry. Over the past 4 years, I have dedicated my career to accelerating the world’s transition to sustainable renewable energy sources. I have done this by working at the largest and most innovative renewable energy companies in the U.S. This year, I am expanding my efforts by opening Truss Bridge Energy LLC.
