Health and environmental businesses dominate SA Innovation Awards winners list

Businesses in the health and clean environment sector walked away with most of the honours at the second My World of Tomorrow South African Innovation Awards last night.

The awards recognised innovation among entrepreneurs and businesses working to bring about positive social change in their respective communities.

In the old days it was the large companies that could set up research and development houses, and could be the leaders in innovation that benefited most. But its changing now we are seeing the democratisation of innovation,Matthew Blewett, chief investment officer at Business Connexion said in a statement at the awards held at the Sandton Convention Centre.
