ORKA is a clean energy financial technology company operating in stealth. (

Current options in the market are slow, bureaucratic, and not focused enough on the customer. We’re leveraging technology to unblock the deployment of better energy, deliver a stronger value proposition and (dare we say) a delightful client experience. Say that again: stale, antiquated. Replace it with fast refreshing delightful. Ahh, that’s better.

If you’re committed to a smart, sustainable economy and passionate about building an intuitive, transformative experience, come check us out. We’re venture-backed, well-capitalized, and the founding team brings combined three decades of related experience.
