Launching with a Crowd

    PledgeMe is really proud to announce that our first equity campaign went live yesterday, and we’ve published our second today.

    While at first glance the two companies are very different, they both have passionate founders who want to bring their crowd into their companies. Be it tech enthusiasts or Twizel natives, these companies cater for a wide spectrum of customers and offer exciting investment opportunities.

    We’re excited about that. We’re excited that any company can try and crowdfund an investment round — and that the crowd gets to decide if they make it or not.

    Now, let us introduce our two companies – Techvana and H2 Explore:


    With the help of computing enthusiasts nationwide, and the support of tech giants like Steve Wozniak, husband and wife team Mark and and Katie Barlow are working to create New Zealand’s first dedicated computer museum. Techvana – The New Zealand Computer Museum will bring together a massive display of computing, gaming, telecommunications and robotics technologies, sourced from fellow collectors throughout New Zealand.

    Shares in Techvana are affordable because they want a thriving crowd to support the museum and be passionate about New Zealand’s tech history. Check out their campaign here.




    One word: hovercrafts. That’s what H2Explore are going to be bringing to Twizel. They’ve gained exclusive consents to start a hovercraft transport business over the Tasman River and Lake Pukaki. With over 7500 cyclists expected to do the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail next year and the booming tourist numbers this campaign has the potential to scale fast if you become part of their crowd.

    Check out their projections and business plan here.

    We’ve got another couple of companies getting ready to launch soon. So keep an eye out for some more equity crowdfunding campaigns coming your way.
