Pitch Night #030 ◇ Tue 23 May, 18:30 @ KPMG, 18 Viaduct Ave, AKL
A First at FKA: Transfercar will pitch and James being a true champion has already shoulder tapped a bunch of FKAngles to help with DD. He reckons he'll also bring the finished report!
Trixie liked her recent ADI.Clinic and we liked her frozen cocktails. She is looking for a business partner and will bring her swips to loosen everyone's tongue to help with her quest.
1) Moxion DD report finished, voted to be portfolio company #10 by LP1 2) Transfercar pitch and DD report next Tuesday 3) Heliase still ongoing. 4) Hot Lime Labs data room populated, now with help from Matthias Andermatt ex Nelson Angels. 3) Wherewolf progressing well.
The Moxion DD Report was circulated earlier this week and the LPs of LP1 have voted Moxion to be FKA Portfolio Company #10. If you are interested in this round and want to know more just flick an email the champion, Rudi.
Welcome aboard with FKA! David has left his skeletons if any behind in distant Scotland. It remains to be seen if he left Scottish mores behind as well and will celebrate his passing of the VETO Gate in wet fashion.
Never mind 11, here just 1 good reason!

Borat has put Kazakstan on the map. Now Sergei Belan from the other middle earth has written FKA with his FLYING DISK. "I KNOW HOW and I able to assemble a manned vehicle about 7-8 m in diameter (up to 4 passengers). And I suggest you collect in your country the world's first manned flying disk."
Who would have thought that our name would attract first flying cars and now flying disks?
We had ADI.Clinic only in Auckland this week. One interesting discussion was around an idea that couldn't be fully disclosed. To do with the health issues around barrister made coffee. We failed at the first hurdle, couldn't agree whether there is a problem and if people care to pay to have it fixed.
BIG thank you to the followingmentors: Garth Hinton, Karl von Randow, Rudi Bublitz and Tim Gelston. Especially, GARTH who stayed until the bitter end at 6 pm, as the others rushed off early to the IA pitch night to support UPROAR. CEO Charlie delivered a much-improved pitch.
