Hi Tech Awards Night

We’re excited to be described as one of “the next wave of growth companies from the Hi Tech sector” at the recent Hi Tech Awards in New Zealand.

And even more proud to be recognised as one for the first ever Callaghan Innovation Māori Innovation Award finalists.

The six finalists in the Māori Hi Tech Award category are all doing amazing and very positive things in the technology world.

“One couldn’t help but warmed by the positive kaupapa of these entries”.

As Hemi Rolleston General Manager Māori Economy and Business Innovation at Callaghan Innovation blogs:

“One couldn’t help but be warmed by the positive kaupapa of these entries. They included improving Māori health, teaching young Māori to code, and focusing on education, culture and sustainability. The winner on the night was Tiaki, a collaboration of Māori fishing businesses embracing technology in the fishing industry. Although Tiaki took out the award on the night, all Māori were the winners. ”

It was therefore fitting to end the launch of the award with the Callaghan Innovation haka Rukuhia!!, which is about being bold in pursuit of excellence and making a difference.
