Grant Ralph

Innovation Manager

Grant fulfils the roles of Innovation Lead and Legal Counsel for Futureworld and has done so for the past three years. This entails engaging with clients to frame their needs and working with Futureworld’s expert team to deliver the appropriate service(s). The result is Grant finding himself involved in every step of a client’s journey, from arranging legal and commercial documents, to executing Design Thinking and Lean Start-Up disciplines in the field. A key success story in Grant’s career is playing an instrumental role in pulling together a diverse, co-located team with no previous agriculture experience, that embarked on creating a new, disruptive business that could help farmers feed the world. In just six months, the team met with more than 80 farmers in three countries, conducted customer discovery interviews, tested paper prototypes, and validated a value proposition and high-fidelity prototype that customers wanted. Today, the business, called Tillo, is in Beta. Grant’s previous experience also includes completing his Law articles at Tugendhaft Wapnick Banchetti and Partners.
