Robotics Plus show their innovative credentials on Sunday programme

A valuable example set by one of our own!

Robotics Plus are founding sponsors of YiA and represent the best of Bay innovation in the fields of technology, robotics, horticulture and primary industries.

They featured in this video from the TVNZ Sunday programme, with co-founders Steve Saunders and Dr Alistair Scarfe reflecting on the company’s agricultural innovation in a Covid-19 impacted world.

Robotics Plus are one of many Kiwi and global businesses that have successfully “pivoted” - to coin the popular term - and, in fact, have grown with their diversification in response to the pandemic.

This further underlines the importance of innovation in today’s fast-changing world and highlights the age-old notion that while there are some things you cannot change – such as the outbreak of a global pandemic – you can change how you respond to these challenges. Innovation is as much about exercising some resilience in planning a way through turmoil and backing yourself to emerge stronger on the other side, as it is about creative thinking in ideal circumstances.
