Despite Techweek, we had our normal April Pitch Nigh on Tuesday and the LoJo reception area was promptly turned into a hip space with great Angel ambience.
Martin gave a little teaser on a Mobility event he is putting together for the hot summer days in Whangarei. Lawrence introduced the team from Akudos who pitched well. They will submit their video for our DD Vote in the next few days, for now, we have this teaser.
Lawrence also gave a demonstration of how US Angels help their startup puppies. He distributed schwag sunglasses from his other startup Horn.co. Rudi came a mere second handing out Moxion.io bags.
OMG, what a busy week! Events all over the country, every waking hour. 50 Angels Flying picked a lucky slot early on Monday morning and cut a favourable deal with the weather gods. Campbell was inundated with dating requests that same night at GridAKL's Speed Dating with Advisors.
Impossible to list all the events that Flying Kiwis have attended or facilitated this week, suffice it to say "It's been awesome but tiring!".
Joe Harper is a smart Angel from Palmi and he is with MIG Angels. However, that doesn't stop him from also wanting to join FKA. It is great to see the connections between Angel groups strengthening in this way.
He has worked and talked with Debra, Garth and Rudi. They each say, "A perfect candidate!". However, if you know of any contraindications, please, advise the Board in confidence.
Over the last two years, Hattaf Ansari has helped FKA as much as it was appropriate given his role at NZVIF. This has been beneficial to both organisations. Now that he has left NZVIF, he wants to formally join the ranks of FKA. David F, Phil and Rudi fully support that.
