FKA ?Pitch Night #038. We had one pitch from Spoke CEO Jason Kerr who wants to rejuvenate telephony and turn mobile phones into a PBX for SMEs and more. Enterprise Angels are leading this deal. FKA will therefore not vote on this as an FKA portfolio company. Rather more, we will share the pitch video and DD report for syndication as a discretionary co-investment through FKA Nominees. More on this when the final report becomes available.
CorneliusBoertjens comes referred by Ngaio Merrick, has invested in FileInvite, has attended ADI.Clinic this week, also he has spoken with Garth, Heath, Phil and Rudi. They all reckon he fits in well, especially Heath would like his support for the all-important customer acquisition piece. Cornelius has not been put off by anything he has seen or heard, in fact, he likes what we do.
Any reason not to have him join FKA? If you know of skeletons in his closet or other reasons please email the FKA board in confidence. Our new FKA poster boy who made it into the coveted gettyimages collection?
ADI.Clinic was extremely successful this week. 6 booking for Wellington on Monday, beating hands down for the first time the team in Auckland with only 4 bookings.
For a bit of fun, CCH Rudi has posted three comical car hack videos to promote ADI.Clinic. The LinkedIn posts refer to these three blog post:
Julia works for Moxion, PFC#10. Her son Josh is a member of the Team Skywalker, who won the NZ Championship title twice in the previous two First Lego League (FLL) robotics competition seasons. Now they have qualified to represent New Zealand in the First Championship World Festival in Houston, USA in April.
There are six in this team from the North Shore. They have built EV3 Mindstorm robots to complete 13 missions in 2.5 minutes. Their focus is on pollution of waste-water from fatty household deposits. Their earlier win in the Hydrodynamics season has qualified them for Houston. The criteria set out by the challenge require that members research, liaise with experts and raise awareness of the issues and potential solutions that surround the problem.
Josh and/or the team can come out to do presentations or can do some work in exchange for sponsorship for their quest.
Josh Comrie this has your name on it!
