Anna Guenther is the co-founder and Chief Bubble Blower of PledgeMe, New Zealand's first crowdfunding platform. Since launching 4 years ago, over 1,000 creative, community and entrepreneurial projects have raised almost $10million through PledgeMe. Anna has also worked for the New Zealand Government, MIT and Harvard, and completed her Masters in Entrepreneurship with a focus on crowdfunding.
In her day job, she focusses on building the crowdfunding community in New Zealand - and is constantly amazed by the passionate people she gets to play with. Half Kiwi, half American, she has travelled around the world for work – but always comes back to call New Zealand home.
