AML/KYC clarification: The above image bears no relation to where and how our fine FKA investors secure the requisite means for their startup funding.
Make no mistake, venture investing and thereby angel investing has gained sex appeal faster in recent years than angel investors are losing that quality. The size of the Tiger Global fund is an international reflection of what we're seeing locally. More VCs, too much money chasing founders who are getting seduced into unrealistic expectations of what the future holds. Value correction, down rounds!
So, let's focus on working with realistic founders and aim beyond the froth!
“Is there anything big or small, which is working better than you expected? Is there anywhere we could double down?” Interesting change of focus away from what is not working. More in video or text.
So tame in fact, that our Chief Cat Herder was deemed fit enough for the 2021 AANZ Arch Angel Award. Great to see the maverick recognised outside of our group!
Given that he is also the author of this newsletter there shall be no further spilling of self-congratulatory words. Onwards and upwards! Who will be the next Flying Kiwi after Debra and Rudi to be recognised as one of the Arch Angels of New Zealand?
But then Debra, as she so often does, takes the last word—the last edit.
«Angel investing has always been for the brave and the bold, and the whole FKA community - angels and founders - celebrate with Rudi!»
Only in this newsletter can Rudi trump Debra. So, for the avoidance of doubt, it is not Debra pictured above.
