How We Started

The Intranel founders met at the University of Canterbury while completing Electrical Engineering degrees. The first project they worked on together was an anti-crash and stabilisation system for model aircraft, with elements of hardware, software, and interfacing. They got on well enough to decide to continue building cool things together.

Over the years they have worked both in New Zealand and the UK, launched start-ups, helped large enterprises navigate social media, and supported many other businesses with consulting and development services, enabling clients to achieve some great successes along the way.
