Meet the team

Camilo Borges

Camilo, our technical guru, hails from the fair climes of Brazil (seriously, fairer than Wellington on a sunny day!). He’s crazy, passionate, loves to get to know people, and in his own words “not the typical IT guy”. He has a passion for brewing, boards (any board will do), and sharing the point (yes, that was a Microsoft joke). He’s the guy that makes all the decisions, and would love to chat to you. Flick him a note at camilo at pledgeme.co.nz

Anna Guenther

Anna, our business mind, sounds American. She swears she’s not though. If pushed, she’ll say she’s technically from Dunedin, but will later admit she grew up in Boston. Having roamed around the world recently, she’s back to call Wellington home (and, to finish her masters in Entrepreneurship). Send her a line sometime – anna at pledgeme.co.nz

Reuben Metcalfe

Reuben is our sales (and everything!) man. He can sell anything. Hailing from Wellington originally, he’s an aspiring entrepreneur with a relentless work ethic. He enjoys dealing with companies that help people. He also has the somewhat ambitious aim of fixing capitalism – preferably yesterday… If you want to chat about that, and more, you can get ahold of him at reuben at pledgeme.co.nz

Shameless plug – Netguide awards

Here’s the link: http://www.techday.co.nz/webawards#21

And, just because my mother taught me well, here’s a giant THANK YOU in advance.

 

 

Let’s make Pūrākau Taranaki happen!

Ok, people, we’ve got six days to get this project up and running. Through Pūrākau Taranaki, Nicole Freeman plans to create artistic representations of maori myths from the Taranaki region. Pretty cool, huh? She’s helping visualise the storytelling culture through art. And, we’re over two thirds of the way to funding it.

So I need 27 people to give $20 towards this rocking cause. What does that get you? An invite to the wine and cheese opening (come on, if you drink two glasses of wine you’ve definitely gotten your moneys worth!) and a name dropping as a “Friend of the Project” at the exhibition.

Come on, be a friend, join in!!

St Rupertsberg = success!

Just a quick note to say, they did it! The St. Rupertsberg girls are the first (of hopefully many) successful projects to be funded on PledgeMe. Good job girls – and keep on going! Still 21 days to go if you would like to contribute to their awesome project.

Now, how do you get involved you ask? Well, get in touch! You’ll need to have an awesome project up your sleeve, some rad rewards to offer your supporters, and a video camera (or friends with a videocamera) to whip up a quick promo to sell your project to the world.
