Māori Women’s Development Inc (MWDI) and PledgeMe have joined forces and are excited to launch their new crowdfunding programme and process – Tā Koha.
Tā Koha helps Māori business and social ventures to utilise the power of their ‘crowd’ of whanau or supporters to fund the kaupapa they care most about.
MWDI CEO, Teresa Tepania-Ashton, says “Tā Koha is a gateway for tangata whenua to learn about the fundamentals of crowdfunding. This is a wonderful opportunity for our people to learn how to maximise crowdfunding for the benefit of their own whanau and community.”
Tā Koha is the first crowdfunding process and programme designed specifically for Māori entrepreneurs. It was developed after meeting with over 300 people from Whangarei to Otautahi. The first group through the programme, the self named Ta Koha bunch, have been going through a specially designed education and engagement programme over the last three months.
PledgeMe CEO, Anna Guenther, says “Tā Koha is about supporting Māori entrepreneurs to use the power of their crowd to fund the things they care about both within their community. and across communities. Last year, we realised that while we had supported over 1,200 campaigns and raised over $27 million dollars, there was not any equity in equity crowdfunding. We wanted to change that.”
Tā Koha will be the first indigenous crowdfunding programme and process to be launched globally. It will also be supported by Government under the He Kai Kei Aku Ringa fund and attended by the Minister for Maori Development, Hon. Nanaia Mahuta.
The night will launch 11 varied and exciting ventures from eco fibre eyelashes to delicious Kiwi kai, eco-tourism and visual reality technology linking individuals to their tribal homelands from anywhere in the world. Māori Women’s Development Inc, PledgeMe and the leaders of the inaugural campaigns will be in attendance to launch this amazing new platform.
