This was our ADI crew in Auckland this week. A sprinkle of white wisdom from Garth, legal mojo from LoJo's Josh with the wooing smile, Andy sticking his nose from the right in, to name but a few of the sterling mentors. Great to see how mentors work as a team, no competition of egos here.
David F (also NZVIF), Debra (also KiwiNet) and Rudi attended the MBIE consultation session yesterday for what do with the $300m - more formally referred to as the Venture Capital Fund (CVF).
We have linked the Industry Consultation Document here. You can make an individual submission to influence the implementation of the bill or circle back to Rudi to compile a collective submission from FKA.
No prizes for guessing the names of the three gentlemen that were first at the MBIE lunch trough.
