Big Idea: 

DroneSeed does targeted reforestation with swarms of heavy-lift drones to mitigate the worst effects of climate change. Their supercharged reforestation campaigns — 6x faster than a human tree-planter — are powered by a combination of their proprietary software, hardware drones, and seed vessels that boost survival rates. More acres are restored faster leaving no land as scrub.

From wind energy to sustainable insect production for animal feed, Grant’s career has focused on green companies. The first venture he founded, BioSystems Co, was acquired, and under the acquirer he managed a $10M raise and construction of a 60,000 square foot factory. Grant studied in Colombia where he earned a masters in engineering design and process.
