Next Tuesday is the third Tuesday of the month and that means pitch night. Marisa and Uli are bringing a startup all about teeth. There could be two more to do with water and noise but they are as of yet unconfirmed. As usual, KPMG will be hosting the night.
Tue 19 June, 18:30 at 18 Viaduct Harbour Ave, AKL.

FileInvite PFC#14 is also useful for the collection of DD docs. So Garth and Jai have taken the initiative to setup Cornelius as the first DD Lead and guinea pig to use FileInvite for Yabble DD. Thanks, Garth and Jai!
Cool Stuff! Little Tim Warren (because Tim Gelston is big Tim) is another FKAngel who has taken initiative and wangled 6 months free Xero use for all visitors to ADI.Clinic. For some bizarre reason, Tim prides himself in asking always the first question at pitch night. Never mind but keep up those Xero-type asks!
Apropos ADI.Clinic: In Auckland, we had 4 founders and 8 mentors. But make no mistake - that gives not a 2-1 ratio but an 8-1 mentor ratio for 4 successive sessions. We had one founder almost in tears, not because we're unlikely to give her money at this stage, but because we gave wise advice re co-founders, she already had one experiencefromhell, because we could give her numerous connections and because we found many encouraging words, especially Simon Brown can praise better than most.
Also, Charlie was no slacker this week running the Wanaka ADI
