Canterbury Angels is delighted to invite you to hear from Angel Association NZ Chair Marcel van den Assum.
Marcel’s talk will be of real interest and value to people, especially those new to, or contemplating, angel investment. Please feel free to extend this invitation to people you know who may be interested.
Marcel will be talking about the state of angel investing in New Zealand with particular regard to:
a brief history of the NZ angel eco-system touching on key catalysts and contributors;
an overview of the level of activity including investment levels, deal trends, syndication drivers, portfolio performance, exits;
the role of the AANZ and our perspective on government policy, implications of crowd-funding, capital lifecycle opportunities (eg NZX).
Marcel will also share some of his experiences with GreenButton, including the GreenButton story with an emphasis on key lessons learnt so that we can emulate as well as charting GreenButton’s course from the angel investment through to acquisition by Microsoft within 5 years, at greater than 10x for founding angels.
