Punakaiki Fund 2016 AGM and September Roadshow

We held our Annual General Meeting for Punakaiki Fund on Thursday last week, with over 70 people attending and chaired by Mike Bennetts.

The group saw presentations from founders or senior staff from WeirdlyVibe CommunicationsVendOnceitTimelyMobi2GoEverEdgeIPMindfullRedseedPopulate, and Linewize. We also presented briefly on the other companies where we have invested.

Once again there was some good questioning from investors, and we had a lot of positive feedback about the event. We had a number of people ask for live streaming – something which we will consider for next year.

In the formal part of the evening, which we kept short, we were very pleased that Mandy Simpson, currently COO of NZX, was voted onto the Board of Directors.

The official results are below.
