Tash 2.0

Wrangler Extraordinnaire

Anna, our CEO and co-founder, sounds American but she's definitely a Kiwi. If pushed, she’ll say she’s technically from Dunedin, but will later admit she grew up in Boston. Having roamed around the world, she’s back to call Wellington home. And she completed her Masters with a focus on crowdfunding and has worked for everyone from NZTE to MIT (and all of the acronyms in between).

Email Anna

Barry's our Irish blow-in. He's a rebel banker with an eye for fresh financial ideas. Whether it's crowdlending or equity crowdfunding that you're curious about, he's always happy to lend an ear and share some insight.

Tash is our chief people wrangling, yarn knitting, all-round awesome person. She helps you get your projects up and running, sorts out your cash dollars at the end, and keeps us all calm and collected.

He has an MBA, however found out too late that it didn’t mean Master of Beer Appreciation. Tan loves travelling to far-flung parts of the world, bringing back a love of scotch whisky, craft beer and food. He is also Vietnam’s tallest man (a fact) and fluent in Vietnamese.
