Members are active angel investors, high growth entrepreneurs, or service providers to new ventures; we all have the commitment and conviction that creation of new businesses is essential for New Zealand’s prosperity. 2013 AANZ’s annual conference will be in Dunedin in November and this function is a step towards it
