Creativity and Results in Collaborative Partnerships

A rising tide is good for all of the ships in the harbour. Derek feels the same about the partnerships and projects that he takes on. If you do well, he does well. Co-operation can replace competition.


Collaborative Entrepreneur

Derek Grimm

Derek (Canadian born), moved to Japan in 1996 after graduating university. It was here that he started developing his skills in digital marketing, creating digital media (content) and websites. The fire was lit and he went on to master the art of interactive GUI’s (Graphic User Interface) and video.

After launching GrongTech in 2013 and running the business for several years out of Perth, in Western Australia, Derek is now based in the Northern Beaches area of Sydney with his wife and children. His business is focused on developing and optimising websites, building marketing automation frameworks, as well as editing and branding video. He believes strongly that the foundation of any online presence is solid, quality content in a variety of formats.

Technology and online marketing are ever changing, but Derek is always expanding his knowledge and keeping abreast of emerging trends.

He is the ‘go to’ guy for many businesses who want to explore new ways to communicate through technology and brings that passion to every project he takes on.


Derek divides his time between three main projects:


GrongTech Web Solutions

GrongTech offers website design, website care, marketing automation, and crypto consulting services.

Urantia TLDR

Urantia TLDR

A narrative driven docuseries featuring longtime students of the Urantia Book

“There is no greater thing you can do with your life and your work than follow your passions – in a way that serves the world and you.”


GrongTech Web Solutions

Derek is the Director and Lead Designer of GrongTech Web Solutions which specialises in website design, website care, and marketing automation.

Website Design

The bedrock that your online presence is founded on: a well designed website should help you convert visitors into paying customers.

Marketing Automation

Marketing automation is the equivalent of having your very own robot salesman promoting your brand 24/7/365.


Website Care

Properly caring for and maintaining a website requires specialised skills, systems, and processes. Caring for a website is just as important as building it!

Urantia TLDR

Urantia TLDR is an episodic, narrative driven docuseries featuring people with a deep knowledge of the Urantia Book. It’s a project which requires skills from both GrongTech’s website design and marketing, as well as the production, editing, VFX and studio work done by GrongTech Media.
