Despite having absolutely no personal knowledge of biology or technology, let alone biotechnology - when I stumbled across Upside Biotechnologies, a company offering regenerative medicine solutions for severe burn patients, I knew that I was on to something revolutionary. This amazing New Zealand start-up has managed to develop the fastest technology for growing human skin to date and can grow enough skin to cover an entire human body in just 16 days. 16 days. In just over two weeks, this company can totally change the life of a severe burn victim.
If you are a New Zealander, sports fan or not, chances are you’ve got a few laughs out of slipping “Boomfa” or “Me oh my I have enjoyed that yes boy” into an Instagram caption or general sentence. While personally not the biggest of sports fans, I do enjoy hearing the occasional Scotty ‘Sumo’ Stevenson spiel on Radio Hauraki or observing the latest Justin Marshall comment being parroted by impressionable young New Zealander’s everywhere. The key takeaway here is that while Scotty and Justin provide quality commentary, sometimes we just want to hear someone that isn’t a stereotypical white, 50-year-old male sports commentator who’s come out of a 30-year cricket career.
