Kia ora,

AANZ Annual Summit – it was great to see the Summit held in Christchurch for the first time earlier this month. Suse Reynolds and her team did an excellent job delivering an interesting and varied programme of keynotes and panels covering a wide range of topics. It’s very encouraging to see that the Angel movement is growing strong with record numbers of Angels, chapters, level of investment and deals. If you haven’t attended an Angel Summit I highly recommend you do.

All you need to know about Angel Investing  – we have the highly respected and experienced Angel Investor Ken Erskine doing another half day workshop on 28th November. During the workshop Ken takes you through all aspects of angel investing from how to build a portfolio, what you should look for, understanding the jargon, the good the bad and the ugly and how to plan for success. We get great feedback from those who attend Ken’s workshops (see below for more details)
