2019 EMERGING GOLD PRODUCTS WINNER

ABLE SPACES 
Big plans for small homesNorma McCartney Able Spaces

In 2017, Norma McCarty decided it was time she did something about the housing shortage, and set up Able Spaces.

The company produces custom-designed, high-quality, transportable homes and buildings.  

“Everyone deserves to have a warm roof over their head,” Norma says. “We can’t solve all problems, but this is one we can help solve, one house at a time.”

Prefabrication means construction time and costs are reduced - a 2 bedroom house can be constructed and transported onsite within 8-12 weeks. At an average cost of $90,000, it’s a great option for down-sizers, property investors and first-home buyers alike.

2019 EMERGING GOLD PRODUCTS FINALISTS

Blackwell & Sons   •   Munch Cupboard   •   NopeSisters Clothing    •   Segmomento by Dot Loves Data

BLACKWELL & SONS
Pedalling their waresAdam Blackwell

Blackwell and Sons is not a bike shop. It’s a place where dreams of picnics, sunny days, and country lanes live alongside quality Pashley bicycles and accessories.

The reality is that the business is growing at speed, with revenue up 150% on last year, and 4 times visitors to the Greytown store outnumbering those online 5 to 1.

“We’ve structured the retail business as an experiential showroom,” owner and branding guru  Adam Blackwell says. “The website business is about efficient online ordering - so our guests can decide to purchase our products either in the shop or from their couch at home.”

MUNCH CUPBOARD

A Plastic Free Lunch

Starting out as an eco-blog, Munch is now a flourishing social enterprise, offering over 70 products, from reusable baby food pouches to beeswax foodwraps online and in supermarkets.

“More and more, people are recognising we’ve got to change the way we use products, and the products themselves,” Munch founder and director Anna Bordignon (pictured) says. “With Munch eco-friendly products it’s easier to be more sustainable.

Munch makes it easy on the staff as well – business hours tie in with school hours and many work from home. “Munch is not only about empowering our consumers but also about empowering the people who work for us,” Anna says.

NOPE SISTERS

Message Dressing 

NopeSisters Clothing began just over two years ago when Wellington sisters Johanna and Brittany Cosgrove (pictured), created a fundraising idea - a 'mastectotee' reminding to self-check for breast cancer. “We found a way to bring about social change through everyday clothing,” says Johanna.“ Our t-shirts became walking billboards - embroidered with targeted messages.”

The issues tackled so far include: period poverty, youth suicide, sexual abuse, disordered eating and environmental waste. NopeSisters has a growing global social media following of 11,000. Every online sale shares 25% of net income to paired local charities– so far $12,500 has been donated.

SEGMOMENTO BY DOT LOVES DATA

The Art of Data 

Segmomento is a tool developed by Dot Loves Data that extracts real meaning from raw data, ensuring the right message goes to the right person at the right time.

“We live in a world that is hyper-targeted, personalised and relevant,” Dot CEO Jason Wells (pictured) says. “Consumers have come to expect that now, but the marketing industry has struggled to keep up. Segmomento joins the dots, reflecting New Zealanders in real time and leading to informed business decision making.”

Dot recently partnered with Microsoft to offer Segmomento through their Power BI platform, which will allow users to upload their data and view results in a secure environment.
