Davis Graves

Davis Graves is a young entrepreneur currently working to promote the viability of grassfed ranching practices through the growth of his company, Grassfed Beef Crisps, which supports family ranchers by using source-verified, grassfed beef in the production of a uniquely thin-cut, artisan jerky. As one of two co-founders, he is largely responsible for maintaining the operations and supply chain of the product, as well as the branding and marketing. An Arizona native, he received his B.S. in Sustainable Energy, Materials, & Technology, and a minor in Economics from Arizona State University in 2013. During his time at ASU, Davis became an intern with the Mayo Clinic and led the development of an enterprise-wide Sustainability Scorecard. Originally interested in renewable energy and corporate sustainability, Davis was introduced to the concept of a ‘serial entrepreneur’ while volunteering for the Gen Next organization. Naturally creative, he is a self-taught graphic designer and maintains freelance design and photography projects while pursuing his own entrepreneurial endeavors – he is currently in the early stages of developing Seed & Sap Ciderworks, an Arizona-based craft cider company. Davis enjoys the outdoors and traveling in his Volkswagen camper van. He also enjoys music and regularly performs with his older brother, Taylor, as The Brothers Too, near his home in Phoenix, Arizona.
