On the 12th of October over 300 innovators from around the country gathered for the unveiling of New Zealand’s top innovators, organisations and teams at Auckland’s Art Gallery.
We are pleased to announce the Supreme New Zealand Innovator for 2012; Revolution Fibres. The evaluators especially liked that “Revolution Fibres have shown their ability to conceptualise and commercialise new nanofibre product solutions. It is Revolution Fibres success in solving complex technical problems, developing new manufacturing techniques and identify new market opportunities for nanofibre products that gives them the recognition of the Supreme New Zealand Innovator Award”.
Special thanks also goes to Sir Ray Avery, who has graciously given up his time and has wholeheartedly supported our quest to celebrate innovators and innovation in New Zealand. We thank Ray for his contribution to the awards and for inspiring and supporting innovation in New Zealand.
