One happy founder and CEO! He needed 17 YES votes from 32 LPs in LP2. He got 20 YES out of 28 votes cast. So, let's give a warm welcome to Vlatko who will work closely with investor rep Garry to now close the round. There is a lot of interest that was waiting on our DD Report. However, Vlatko wants to take all money, knowing now how long a process fundraising can be. Thanks also to Andrew Turnbull, he helped already in the early days with the setup of FKA, and has now referred HLL and helped throughout the DD process. Ping Garry.Bluett@fka.nz an email if you are interested to co-invest and want to see a copy of the full FKA DD Report.
Garth and Phil are champions for James Sampson from fileinvite.com who will pitch later this month. Good idea to prep for this one and trial the product for free. Thank you to straight shooter Lance Wiggs, he is a fan and sent James our way.
Thursday's NZ Innovations Award 2017 was a great night but had fewer FKAngels than Monday's Octoberfest. Finalists Wherewolf FPC#12 and Kami FPC#02 were represented in good numbers. Rudi attended for FKA and Moxion FPC#10 and had the honour to collect a Hɪɢʜʟʏ Cᴏᴍᴍᴇɴᴅᴇᴅ in the Dɪsʀᴜᴘᴛɪᴠᴇ & Bʀᴇᴀᴋᴛʜʀᴏᴜɢʜ Iɴɴᴏᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ category for the busy Moxion team.
FKAngel Colin picked up two awards for MARS Bioimaging and Avalia Immunotherapies that he is involved with. He also picked up a reprimand from the CCH for not bringing more biotech deals to FKA
The event format was a great improvement on previous years and if interim CEO Craig Cotton has his wicked ways then next year should be even better.
Don't miss this event next year!
David R and Rudi B are representing FKA @ the Summit.
However, there are three great pre-Summit events that leverage the international angels visiting from overseas. FKAngels, don't miss these. ☞ MORE HERE

10 days ago we installed chatbot Gobot to find out how visitors find fka.nz. From some 160 chats over that time we got the above 7 answers. Now, who the hell is that Rudi?
You may have 'observed' a temporary fka.nz domain blackout on Thursday morning. All fixed again after the domain subscription had been renewed. One cat that slipped through the net
If you missed Monday's party, see the image above to know it was real. We only remembered to take a photo late at night when many had left already. If you attended you know how good it was
Igor Portugal followed the call of The-Good-Idea-Fairy. He drank Horny Goat Weed beer and talked with several FKAngels. He could be our first Russian and more diversity is a good thing for FKA.
