Sharon Amezcua


As a serial entrepreneur for over 30 years, Sharon Amezcua has created, built, accelerated, invested in and exited hundreds of companies across the globe. The beginning of Sharon’s career was focused on building and growing energy-related companies in lighting, HVAC control systems and alternative energy. After the successful exit of New Energy Ventures in LA, Sharon Co-Founded MCC Global NV, an old-style merchant bank that was listed on the Frankfurt stock exchange in 2006. MCC offered a proprietary incubation and acceleration “de-risking” process that Sharon developed and implemented through building, growing and exiting emerging and established companies with an unmatched track record of success.  As Vice Chairman of Moore Clayton Capital Advisors, Inc. and Vice President of Equus II, MCC Global’s fund management company and its NYSE-listed private equity fund, respectively, Sharon was instrumental in increasing the overall value and ROI of this highly regulated BDC.

 

Currently, Sharon is the Co-Founder of ESE Partners, LLC and ESE Fund Ltd., a future financial services company that builds and invests in emerging and established companies in targeted sectors across the world.  ESE has created an unregulated stock exchange in Europe (European Stock Exchange) and owns a regulated stock exchange, SSX (Start Up Stock Exchange) that is expanding across globally. Sharon is also the Co-Founder of SSG, LLC, a technology transfer company managed by women at the top of their fields and initially created to build companies in the US and the Middle East/North Africa region of the globe. ESE and SSG both have a strong focus on traditional industries converging with new technologies particularly in new media, healthcare, alternative energy and financial services.

 

Sharon’s passion (besides dancing!) is working with young people through business and philanthropy to enhance their entrepreneurial skills and assist them in executing their dreams. She is also an active Board member of SNT (Social Networking Technology) and Bizzy Girls and on the Advisory Boards of several early stage companies as well as philanthropies.
