Rest assured, I'm entering all of these brilliant ideas in the mobile, media and entertainment category and all my previous brilliant ideas in the food and beverage category).

Innovation

The 2016 round of the New Zealand Innovation Awards is open for entries so if you’ve got an amazing product, service or venture – or you know someone with a great idea who needs to be shoulder-tapped – now’s the time to tell your story.
