OMG, a very different breed of cats to herd
Sparring partners in 2017 to get fighting fit for US market entry, Team FKA and Team KPMG now are battling it out on the race track in 2019. Thanks to Sharon Stewart and her Love My New Zealand and Archibald & Shorter, the two teams will race each other by points in the new all electric ⚡️ Jaguar i-Pace series.
Entry is open to FKAngels, KPMG staff and everyone else who is passionate about the NZ Startup Ecosystem. The race manager will balance the drivers across both teams.
This event is for all angel investors, VCs and fund managers around New Zealand who want to learn more first hand about transport innovation. There are a lot of interesting companies already operating in New Zealand, many of them centred around Auckland.
If not all 50 investors report for the start of the event we will backfill with startup founders to give them an opportunity to mix with investors.
The event is planned for 20 May 2019. See below the list of companies that we approached and that are likely to be part of this interesting and informative line-up. Feel free to suggest others in the comment section.
Managing partner Cindy Padnos at Illuminate Ventures and tweeter @IlluminateVC set out to illuminate gender differences in entrepreneurship. She has done exactly that and presents some illuminating findings with her paper.
Turns out, men and women startup founders have similar entrepreneurial motivations BUT they differ in their beliefs about what barriers to success they face.
