Turn to your crowd of friends, family, customers and fans. Ask them to pledge to your campaign. If all that support equals more than your goal, you've made it!

CEO/Chief Bubble Blower
Chief Lending Officer
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).
Anna is our token outdoors enthusiast. She has a background in corporate law and social enterprise, and sees PledgeMe as a happy middle-ground between the two. When she's not getting herself lost in the wilderness, she is busy making sure our operations side of things are smoother than smooth peanut butter.
Chief Bacon Sizzler
Chief Design Awesome-iser
Tan brings home the bacon for amazing kiwi businesses (faking bacon for our vegan friends). His background is in tech, business development and raising capability. 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.
Jessie is PledgeMe's indefatigable intern. She does a lot of the social media and blogging for us and she's currently studying law and film. We hope she will make us some legal films at some point.
Chief People Wrangler
Jessica Venning Bryan
Chair of the Board
Jessica has spent 15 years advising organisations like Lion, the Electoral Commission, Seafood NZ, Saatchi & Saatchi Global, and the Sustainable Business Council on how to engage customers with projects and brands. From beer to electricity, voting systems to employment, she's delivered projects in New Zealand, Australia, the United States and the UK.
Nick is an experienced entrepreneur, with a history of work in the investment banking space (from JP Morgan through to co-founding Woodward Investments in New Zealand). He is the Chair of our Board, and has support us pretty much since the beginning.
Breccan manages all things tech for us, with the help of the awesome Rabid team. He's also passionate about what the next level of crowdfunding could be, and has a beautifully analytical brain.
