The race continues... Heliase DD under Chris and Moxion DD under Rudi have already resumed after the Xmas pit stop. Both in a race to make the last investment slot in LP1 and become portfolio company #10. However, there is also slot #01 to kick off LP2. So let's see.
Not quite like the above of course. Rudi is working on the FKA website for 2017. We have all FKAngels organised on one page, with icon links on hover to LinkedIn, email (e.g. Arron.Patterson@fka.nz) and mobile number. Also, a link to a website or video that helps flesh out the person. Finally a snappy caption. Before we flick it over to the FKA.nz domain, please your feedback:
if you want a better photo used, then email it to Rudi RB@fka.nz,
if you don't want your mobile number accessible or
have other links you want to be used or
have a snappy caption or some endorsement messages then tell him.
Currently, new FKAngel Dhaya is clearly in the lead for 2017 Poster Boy/Girl. With young Will joining at the end of last year there were high hopes on him after Dan Burrill had unofficially held the title for a long time. Josh also fancies himself as a contender and Tim could have chances, but his photos usually get cut off below the chin.
There is cat herding and there is surveying penguins. Seriously, ecentre and Massey are conducting a survey on NZ Investor Behaviour to benchmark against a similar survey from Silicon Valley. Here the link. JUST DO IT Rudi has done it and is additionally attending a Focus Group next Thursday.
Jai will sit on a small panel of angel investors judging the Business Is Awesome event that will be held in Auckland on 21st of February.
So far they have 191 registrations from students and commerce undergrads of 19 schools. They will listen to talks by successful entrepreneurs and then form teams and present ideas to angel investor judges, all in one day. Jai promises "I'll blow the trumpet for Flying Kiwis!" Cool shot, if you could retake it without the umbrella⛱.
