For the many women recovering post breast cancer surgery, it can be both an emotionally distressing time as well as a physically uncomfortable one.

Lucy Grunfeld is a young industrial designer turned entrepreneur whose invention Bra+ve is designed to alleviate some of the challenges faced post-op. 

Lucy was one of entrepreneurs acknowledged last night at the 11th annual KiwiNet Research Commercialisation Awards held in Auckland. 

The awards celebrate individuals transforming research into impactful innovations for the world.
