Partnerships make Flying Kiwi Angels stronger. As angel investors, we partner to share the workload and pleasure of working with and investing in NZ startups. We are also partnering for syndication with other investor groups to increase the funding pool for our portfolio companies. Zino Ventures have expressed interest to work more closely with FKA in 2018 to leverage our agility and in return bring their strong connections into Asia. Of course, the financial support from our partners KPMG, LoJo, Potentia and Delta Insurance is key to keeping our back office working as smoothly as our frontline work with founders.
