Thato Ramashala
Exponential Growth Leader

I am an Exponential Growth Leader at Futureworld with a passion for creating businesses that will shape the future of our world. After completing my mechanical engineering degree at the University of Cape Town, I went straight into advisory. During my years in advisory, I assisted clients with both strategic and operations transformation matters where my desire to make a tangible impact was born.

At Futureworld, I have been able to pursue this desire by bringing groundbreaking businesses to life. This involves developing value propositions, writing businesses cases and building new businesses.

At Futureworld everyone has the freedom to express unconstrained creativity in imagining the art of the possible. Combining this with ambitious people that want to create tomorrow makes working at Futureworld a truly exciting experience.

Matt Lawlor
Snr Exponential Growth Leader

I am a Senior Exponential Growth Leader at Futureworld.  I spend most of my time working from home, a coffee shop or collaborating with my colleagues at a co-working space!

I am a seasoned management consultant (or at least I used to be!) having spent more than a decade at a Tier 1 Strategy firm, delivering a broad range of service offerings across industries for clients across the globe. My experience is grounded in a legal / commercial undergraduate degree and an MBA from UCT’s Graduate School of Business.

In my role at Futureworld I work side-by-side with our partners and project teams in crafting strategies that deliver exponential growth for our clients, which manifest in the building of game-changing new businesses.

My experience at Futureworld has been phenomenal and has re-invigorated the next chapter of my career.

Nyasha Chimhandamba
Insights Leader

I am an Insights Leader at Futureworld. I quite enjoy the hybrid model of working from home and being able to collaborate with and get to know my colleagues in the office.

I studied at UCT and developed my own product whilst pursuing my BSc in Biochemistry and Genetics. After completing my honours, I went to do my MPhil in Inclusive Innovation at UCT’s Graduate School of Business whilst being a part of the Solution Space incubator program.

At Futureworld I have been able to fulfil my desire to learn new things and bring life to new ideas. I am free to create, imagine the art of the possible, and partner with our clients to build new businesses.

Futureworld is an environment where many of the skills I have learned can add value, whilst also providing opportunities for me to expand my capabilities.

Anika Viljoen

I am passionate about transforming innovative ideas to real outcomes and to solve some of the world’s biggest problems. It is for this reason that I joined Futureworld – creating new businesses that reshape the futures of some of the largest global corporates. And the cherry on top? Crafting the ideas with an inspiring, future-thinking team!

I am a qualified Engineer and hold an MBA from the University of Cape Town Business School. Before joining Futureworld, I worked at a leading global management consulting firm on various Strategic and Operational projects.

If you don’t find me in the mountains adventuring, I am busy googling the best local coffee spots or my next travel destination. My motto? Persist, pivot or concede. It’s up to us. Our choice. Every time.
