Now’s the time to tell your story by en­ter­ing the New Zealand In­no­va­tors Awards, cel­e­brat­ing in­no­va­tion and com­mer­cial­i­sa­tion in New Zealand.

“We have a his­tory of in­no­va­tion in New Zealand – in our com­mu­ni­ties, our per­son­al­i­ties and in our DNA,” says In­no­va­tion Coun­cil CEO, Louise Web­ster. “Our in­ter­est and pas­sion to create new things, find new so­lu­tions and de­velop new prod­ucts and ven­tures makes us a na­tion of great Kiwi in­no­va­tors.”

The awards, now in their fourth year, aim to un­earth, re­ward and cel­e­brate re­search, in­no­va­tion and com­mer­cial­i­sa­tion, putting great Kiwi com­pa­nies on a na­tional stage to help them grow.

“The 2013 en­trants were im­pres­sive and the event is clearly hav­ing a pos­i­tive im­pact on the in­no­va­tion and busi­ness com­mu­nity,” says Bayer New Zealand man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Dr Hol­ger Detje.

“As foun­da­tion spon­sor of the awards, we’re thrilled to be a part of the process and are ex­cited to see what will be un­earthed this year.”

En­tries for the NZ In­no­va­tors awards are open from un­til 14 Au­gust.
