The tools are said to provide comprehensive deal flow management for angel groups as well as unmatched solutions for maintaining ongoing relationships with, and mentoring of, start-up entrepreneurs.

“Today’s partnership was made is a real coup for AANZ members, who can now leverage the global standard in deal flow management and collaboration software,” said Bill Payne, a US-based angel investor. “Having spent a great deal of time in New Zealand, I know firsthand how vibrant its early stage start-up community has become. With Angelsoft’s suite of tools in place, I have no doubt that angels and entrepreneurs will drastically streamline the funding process and open up a new world of co-investment opportunities.”
