A big THANK YOU to James from KPMG for hosting our October pitch night. A regular at our Thursday's ADI, he has also put up with us last Wednesday.
However, the even bigger THANK YOU has to go to Hamish, Zee wife and the rest of the Winedab crew. They kept us plied with wine and hit everyone's taste bud 100% of the time with their proprietary questionnaire.
Great to help MVP'ing. They might even come for money one day
Pitch #1. Clinton pitched a foundation platform that will be key as the number of drone and UAV operators keeps growing. His team has great domain experience, connections and they know what to do.
Jonathan is the champion □
Pitch #2. Not about money, just an update from portfolio company #10. Hugh and the gang at Moxion are going blockbusters. Their next shareholder update is due out soon.
Rudi is the investor rep
Pitch #3. OMG, seldom have we seen a pitch delivered like a sermon set for world domination. Josh and Jarome from Kwotimation pulled off a compelling double act. The pitch we had to wait for because they had an earlier date with Rob from Hillferance. Well worth the wait!
Julian is the champion

Martin is not the artist, his wife Barbara is, and more of an angel too. She has an exhibition in Mangawhai if you're passing that way. More here.
Fred Wilson from Union Square Ventures, NY "Most [...] wins have been in companies where we were the first institutional VC to talk to the company or where we had way more conviction about the opportunity than other investors at the time of our investment." BLOG
Our Deal Flow Master Andy wants to focus on point one, our Chief Cat Herder Rudi on point two with a diverse group that has a differentiated investment appetite.
