OMG, we're turning 50! No, understood many of you already have. Next Tuesday will be our 50th pitch night. We had several improvised venues until Paul McPadden from KPMG stepped in and gave our pitch nights a steady and much more professional home. Thank you!!!
Heath is bringing you Ben from Ahau. The odds on Heath or Ben doing a Haka are fairly even. Don't miss it! Also, we have James from FileInvite #14 giving us an update on progress. Debra will legalise on lessons learned from our last deal FormusLabs #15. Mabye one more pitch!
Chief Cat Herder called out 'BAD GIRLS' when the last two FKAngels to complete their investor docs for March 2019 were Jackie and Marisa. They have since come good but Jackie couldn't help sending a tongue in cheek image of the Bad Girls musical.
Garry is circulating the quarterly update for Hot Lime Labs #13. Rudi will circulate a co-investment call for Vesper Marine S02 and an opportunity to buy some shares in Moxion #10.
Keep an eye out in your inbox and tame your spam filter! Funny, but we now have two companies in our portfolio that end in LAB. The founders are certainly not but does that make FKAngels lab rats?
Shame or Fame?
Alex Teh, Colin Dawson, James Hoseason, Josh Comrie, Karl von Randow, Ralf Muller and Steve Copley, your votes are still needed to decide if we should do DD on The Property Crowd.

When FKA's CCH recently attended a studio interview at the NBR one of the reporters, ex-NZ Navy, Sanjay Prakash spontaneously gifted his hat to match Rudi's jacket. Pictured above is the very same Sanjay receiving the Sword of Honour. Undoubtedly a perfect celebrant for FKA's next sabrage - maybe with 50 Angels Flying on Lime Scooters in May ?
Techweek is getting bigger after our fledgling FKAngel Jennifer did such a great job getting it established. We will combine pitches and talks with some real action, fruity action. Debra has already vowed to practice her liming moves to be ready for the day. Let's have a lot of fun!
Please share the event page fka.nz/50-angels-flying wide and wildly, Dale might say Weirdly, amongst your investor network, the more the merrier, syndication always trumps! Registration will open shortly.
Jackie here, wearing a Grow North, ecentre and FKA hat. Tue 21 May, 4-6pm at Smales Farm. The 'north of the bridge' innovation ecosystem from schools to scales ups, will discuss Tech that’s good for the world. Would be awesome to have some FKAngels as guest thought leaders to fire the conversation and answer questions around tech investment and funding. Ping me Jackie.Young@fka.nz or call me 021-655-522 ?
Anthony Gibbons from ATEED is calling for a workshop on Entrepreneurial Auckland, 30 April, 17:30, GridAK, 12 Maden St. Here are the summary points from the previous session. Please register!
ATEED hosts our Auckland ADI.Clinic every week thanks to GridAKL, makes sense that FKAngels help define the way forward! GO ANGELS!
Interesting talk by the man who inspired "Catch me, if you can". Insights into poor security practices that enabled the 16-year-old to fly and feed off Pan Am for years. Great way to fly but little help for angelic flight.
