Things have moved quickly at PledgeMe in the last couple of years. With more ways than ever for entrepreneurs and companies to raise capital and grow their businesses, we’ve decided to hit the road to tell you all about it.

    So, whether you live in Invercargill or Kerikeri, we’re coming your way soon for a session on how your company or organisation can raise necessary capital through your crowd. In late June we’re starting with the Tour de South Island and we’ll be making stops from Invercargill to Nelson (full timetable below).

    Why are we coming?

    As New Zealand’s first crowdfunding platform we’ve noticed some of our most amazing campaigns don’t necessarily originate in our major cities… which is why we’re hitting the road this winter and bringing PledgeMe to you!

    What are we talking about?

    Earlier this year we set up CrowdfundingU as a way to help Kiwi companies get ready to equity crowdfund. We’re bringing the first session in this six part series to your town.

    Things that we’ll cover:

    • What are the types of crowdfunding for companies?
    • Who’s your crowd and how do you communicate with them?
    • What requirements or documentation do you need for equity crowdfunding and crowdlending?
    • What’s next….

     At the end of the session you’ll have a solid idea of whether and how crowdfunding could work for your business (or other type of entity if you aren’t a company and you’re keen on crowdlending).

    Where are we going?

    How much does it cost?

    Tickets are $20 each or 3 for $50. We also have a sponsorship opportunity in each location for companies wanting to support us on more significant level and become a bigger part of the event.

    But there’s a catch: we’ve put a minimum threshold of 20 tickets sold for us to lock in each our South Island stop offs – so we need you to buy in advance if you want to come along!

    How you can help

    1. Come join us for an evening in your home town by grabbing yourself a ticket
    2. Share this with your crowd (or on Facebook / Twitter)
    3. Are you one of our fabulous alumni? Want to come on the road trip WITH US? Get in touch with the team to chat more.


    We can’t wait to visit you 🙂



      1. Hey Jason, It depends on the location – mainly the events are starting at 6pm but in Christchurch it’s starting at 12:30pm. The timing should be on each of the campaign pages. Shout out if you need anything else!
