New Zealand: Meet the 2013 New Zealand International Business Awards winners
Last Updated: 30 September 2013

With highlights including an impromptu haka and an acoustic guitar performance from winners, the New Zealand International Business Awards proved to be a huge success.

Organised by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, the awards night was a celebration of those New Zealand businesses making their mark on the world stage with innovative business models and stand out performance.

Winner of our very own category, the James & Wells Best Commercialisation1 of Intellectual Property2 in International Business was Auckland UniServices Ltd.

"With good systems and processes in place for IP3 management, there is with no doubt a massive opportunity ahead for Auckland UniServices to shift the dial", judges commented.

Agri-tech company Tru-Test was awarded the Judges Supreme Award for International Business for their success in exporting farming products on the global stage.

A first in the event was the Special Commendation awarded to ARANZ Geo, developers of a 3D geological modeling solution for industries including energy, mining and the environment.

The company was also awarded the ANZ Best Business operating Internationally – Under $10 million Category.
