Portfolio Company #02 Kami, NexTransfer PFC#11, Auror aka Eyedentify (pitched April 2015, DD under James H), IMeasureU, Parrot Analytics, PowerbyProxi and many, many other startups have spawned from the annual innovation competition that is student-run, very professionally, at The University of Auckland.
Various FKAngels have participated as judges and/or mentors over the years. IMU won in 2013 with the FKAwsome mentorship of Heath and Rudi. Or take Bob Drummond, he connected with Kami as competition mentor, then became their investor, then chairman and is now their (ᴏᴜʀ) Chief Revenue Officer.
The 2018 season is promising to be very interesting again. Hence, CCH Rudi is encouraging FKAngels to join him and the ranks of other judges and mentors. See for more details ☞ here.
Jason Kerr presented Spoke Phone at our March Pitch Night. We now have the full DD Report available which is being circulated by a separate co-investment call. Thank you to FKAngel Phil Southward for working and DD with Enterprise Angels who are leading the round.
Lucky FKA. Did she offer you some man bras on 1April ? [Amanda was making reference to Debra's involvement with Rose & Thorne.]
Believe it or not, we had a 'matching' founder come into ADI.Clinic yesterday with his ɢᴇʟ-ᴠᴇsᴛ proposition. Essentially, a templated gel application to selectively remove men's chest hair to enhance the appearance for beach, bath and beyond. Contact Uli.Wiehle@fka.nz if this tickles your fancy.
This was clearly a stand out next to the other founders we saw this week at ADI.Clinic: 3x Whangarei, 4x Wanaka, 4x Auckland. Big thank you to the ADI Whips who make it happen: Martin K, Charlie J & Uli W.
Also, Cornelius has received a lot of support from his LinkedIn fraternity for joining FKA.
Charles Meaden, the founder and CEO of Uproar, FKA Portfolio Company #09 sent in the above in reverence to the CCH.
