PHEW! It's been a few busy months: two new portfolio companies, transitioning from LP1 to LP2 and 3x due diligence still underway. No new pitch this month, so we can chill, mull and munch things over on Tuesday at a social dinner. All welcome: angels, partners, our founders and their staff.
We'll simply split the bill but need numbers to make a booking, alway a bit of a challenge with 10+ peeps. Our last dinner was in August in Cassia's private dining room. A fun night! We expect our YOUNG couple to shout a round of drinks, with Jackie's new job, Greg might go part time
If you're coming then flick Rudi an email with numbers.
FKAngel Jackie Young is the new CEO of the ecentre. Read all about it ☞ here. Congrats from 50+! That is the FKAngel count NOT the age of all other angels

Applications are now open for the Sydney-based Lion Unleashed Accelerator powered by Slingshotters. They are looking for Kiwi startups too and it may make a lot of sense for some. So tell your startup connections about it and LIKE this ☞ LinkedIn post or COMMENT on it, alternatively by good ole word of mouth.
Chief sling shooter Karen Lawson is hosting a roadshow for the Lion Unleashed Accelerator in Auckland, 3 July, 17:45 @ The Icehouse. Please RSVP. "There will be plenty of food and beverage sampling from Lion (bonus)!" Tell everyone about it!
This was the teaser pic for last November's 4x4 event which received a much strong level of response, last week's reaction was lacklustre. So here again... Sharon offers "Would the FKA's like to book in for another flying lesson, only this time in another venue that I have created up at Bethells Beach - pretty amazing venue. This time, the angelscould bring colleagues along as a way of me exposing our corporate fun days? Angels go free but colleagues are a chargeable baggage! I think a wood burner with lamb smoked with the perfect Destiny Bay Merlot would be a great mid-winter adventure." Here is the deal: every FKAngel bringing two pieces of chargeable baggage 2x $390 is going free. Interested? Rudi
