Matt is a Kiwi in Sydney, a professional investor with a passion for Kiwi startups and he suffers from Another FKA Friday bibliomania. His own blogs, however, have a text to image ratio that will please those who read. They are worth a read, especially the interview with Peter Beck and the analysis of the Rocketlab phenomenon.
Matt has attended ADI and sends the odd Aussie startups to ADI.
Brough's $250k convertible note round is in overfunding. That is little surprise for a founder who has progressed from Power Rangers to Narrative Muse. She may have been the one in pink or the VFX editor, only one of which is true. Small world, Moxion №10 has powered the Power Rangers production of the last three seasons.
Lawrence is our Angel with Ukulele. He formed his angelic habits in the US and the DD Report on Melodics has been a long time coming. This either means he is very slow or very thorough. Judge for yourself when you hold the report in your hands.
We will circulate it with the co-investment call over the weekend. The German hand on the last stretch will be punctual!
No - no Angel is bringing no pitch this month. Never mind, we still got some DD to do. So let's meet up for drinks and fun. If you have a secret talent bring it and share it! Expect a lot of talent from the U35 gang. Usual time, just a different place, CCH's place aka Rudi2Wings
Heath + hair acrobatics Lawrence + ukulele Rudi + 3x balls
The above are just some examples of the FKAing talent you can expect.
Another neck and neck race at ADI.Clinic this Thursday between Queenstown and Auckland. Queenstown started the day ahead with 4 bookings when Auckland had only 3. Then Queenstown had a cancellation but was overtaken by Auckland with 2 additional bookings. On the way to the finish line, Auckland sustained a no-show to finish in the end 1 up on Queenstown.
However, let's not forget Blenheim, Hamilton and Whangarei that opened the week with 1, 3 and 2 bookings respectivly. That brings the total of founders that Angels and local mentors have helped this week to 13.
Uli is also known as Mr Well-Groomed. He brought us ToothCrush. Will he bring us SoapCrush? A great example of how startups can drive sales with unexpected adverting. The hairy man on the right is notLawrence.
Rudi is looking for a manly voice to turn this video into a promo video for FKA "Clean & Fee Free!"
Some more from last week's showcase at the ecentre. Jackie had four startups that pitched for investment.
Narrative Muse - books & films | Trickle - taps & beer | iLOSE - weight & loss | BeeAPP - honey & bees
Some readers may have received an offer to buy 15% of a Mango via their FKA-domain email. CCH checked with one of their directors.
Hi Craig, An Abby H. is offering 15% of Mango. Is this real or a scam? Best Rudi ◇ Hi Rudi, it's real. Definitely not a scam. Cheers Craig.
This does not constitute an endorsement. Mangos can be good or bad.
Okay, let's bring this little series to a close. It is unlikely to produce the entertainment value that James Veitch has been able to extract from his exchange. It is a TED Talk worth the watch.
