FileInvite is FKA's portfolio company №14 and Garth is the board-level investor rep. As an ex-banker, he has shown them the key to the safe and the team is literally robbing the bank with their current round topping NZ$1M. Awesome!
FKAngels - always partners in crime!

Where there is money changing hands, there is paperwork and admin.
We have recently facilitated an internal $75k market for shares of one of our portfolio companies that benefitted both buyers and sellers over the conditions otherwise available.
We will facilitate the purchase of shares under preemptive rights in another portfolio company. Discounted by 25% against the last round, there is healthy interest in these shares.
Two LinkedIn ads this week for ADI in Auckland. Different levels of response but neither managed to increase the number of visitors during 24 hours. #FKAngelsSwati Gupta is one founder who followed the ADI call in March 2017. She has come a long way turning her autism research into a commercial product that she has now launched.
Thank you LoJo, so great to have your support again! Andrew, Michelle & Joshua, good legals are like engine lubricants - they prevent things from getting stuck. Great LinkedIn support too!
Onwards and upwards for another year and beyond!

Dear Mr. Rudi Bublitz,
This business proposal is for your mutual consideration, a very good friend of mine a Financial Consultant has the contact of some investors who are seriously looking for Investment Manager to handle huge investment projects or fund any already existing projects.
According to my friend, the fund will be re-invest strictly under the managerial care of the Investment Manager, which allows the Investment Manager to control the initial title.
Upon the receipt of your positive response, I shall explain in details for your better understanding.
Yours respectfully, Mr. Thiele Jeffry. (Broker) [firstname.lastname@example.org]
