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. But you better do it quick – entries close on Friday, August 5. And to get you thinking about entering – and to do as we always do and celebrate innovation of all stripes – we’re showcasing the best ideas we come across. And this week we’re looking at some awesome innovations that could fit into the media, mobile and entertainment category.

In a new series we talk to people in the industry about what the updates mean to marketers. This week Wendy Thompson, founder and managing director of Socialites, explains how businesses can go live with Facebook Live.
