Happy New Year,

I hope you had an enjoyable break with family and friends. As we enter the new decade we’re looking to build on the considerable momentum we generated in 2019 which saw record levels of investment ($845k) and new deals (nine). We will be focused on growing our membership, the number active investors, deal flow and CA’s profile.

We will also be working with the other Angel groups in the South Island to develop more critical mass so we can collectively grow angel investing, increase the skills and expertise of founder and investors and accelerate deal flow.

Best wishes for a successful year.
