Nick Ansell

Business Development Associate

Nick first encountered ZCF after getting in touch with Fast Forward 2030 while looking for an internship as part of his Masters in Global Development. Having spent the first year of the course studying the major global challenges facing us today, he was drawn to how ZCF were helping to tackle issues like sustainability, climate change and food security. After completing his studies he joined us full-time as a Business Development Associate.

“My role covers a range of tasks within the Business Development side of the company. A typical day may involve anything from supporting the rest of the Business Development team in various projects, building our food service customer base, gathering market intelligence & conducting market research, to grants writing (for R&D trials or for our commercial expansion), helping with press queries, contributing to the company’s sustainability credentials and assisting with our emissions, environmental & social targets.

Working for ZCF is definitely completely different to anything I’ve done before. I never would have imagined working in food production and (urban) agriculture let alone within an emerging Ag Tech industry which barely existed 10 years ago.”
