The New Zealand Innovators Awards happened last Wednesday, and we felt honoured to be a finalist among so many amazing local innovation stories.

Our favourites included Precision Seafood Harvesting’s Modular Harvesting System (pictured above) which is revolutionising the way fish are trawled. Watch the great video here.

And Rocket Lab’s Electron Launch Vehicle - the space rocket that will deliver a small satellite into space for a fraction of the cost of the Americans’ equivalent. All about that here.

All the winners and Idealog’s write up of the night here.
