Pitch Night #032: This Tuesday we had Jo Mills from Fuel50 and Mark Loveys from Datagate each give a positive progress report. With engaged Q+A we clocked up 90 minutes for both sessions followed by an intimate dinner of two.Tim Warren lamenting the passage of time and Rudi the way of the cats...
Jo and Mark found if useful and took away some additional connections and recent FKA joiners found it useful to learn more about our portfolio companies and to meet the founders.
Tim's birthday again and he is inviting everyone (and their dog).
When? 29 July at 20:00

In last week's issue, Rudi reported from his visit to Brisbane and Melbourne Angels. In the interest of clarity, it is Brisbane Angels who bill their investors 3% before accepting investment funds. Nice and transparent. However, Melbourne Angels operate much like FKA and don't charge commission. Duncan from MA asked for this to be clarified and since reading Rudi's prompt correction on LinkedIn has suggested: "Not only [...] a Chief Cat Herder of renown, [...] a chief Shit-Stirrer without equal!!".
FKA & Melbourne Angels proudly operate a zero fees regime!
With three of our portfolio companies, namely Kami #02, Aisleworx #03 and Wherewolf #12 qualified as finalists in this year's AmCham-DHL Awards Rudi has already booked his tickets for the grand nigth. He is hoping not to be the only winged Kiwi, so come and join the FKA gang!

This year's AANZ Angel Summit will be held on Waiheke. Great way to meet international angels, the Aussies have booked a big house already.Valuable insights and connections.
More on it here, early birds book here. FKAngels with Waiheke property interest, let's think how we can make this a great experience. David R was extremely generous in making his bach available for Moxion's first offsite in July - great example
ADI.Clinic this week in Auckland only. Most notable? We had a Rocket Cafe machine in attendance. David H was carting his dear machine on a granny's shopping trolly as the levitating model that is pictured here is considerably more expensive.
Thanks, FKAngels David, Rudi and Uli and of course FKApprentice Zack who is headed for a conference in Bangkok.
