PledgeMe: NZ’s busiest equity crowdfunding platform

PledgeMe: NZ’s busiest equity crowdfunding platform

In the past week, two equity crowdfunding campaigns on PledgeMe have hit their minimum funding goals and are blazing forward looking for more investors.

Sorbet and Angel Food have both utilised their existing customer bases to build amazing crowds and ensure successful campaigns, PledgeMe CEO Anna Guenther said today.

“Both Sorbet and Angel Food have done a fantastic job of getting their customers to hop on board and invest. This is what crowdfunding is all about,” Ms Guenther said.

“We’re really happy to see awesome female founders get the funding they need to help them grow their companies.

“PledgeMe is proud to be New Zealand’s busiest equity crowdfunding platform, and we’re looking forward to the other couple of campaigns currently running pushing to join these two as successes.”

Angel Food had a minimum goal of $75,000 and currently has over $116,000 pledged with another week left to run.
Sorbet just hit their goal of $150,000 today after launching their campaign less than a week ago.

Sorbet founder Brianne West said over 65 percent of investors are existing customers.

“This is exactly why we chose to crowdfund. We are so delighted to have almost 100 new team members join our fold, helping us save the world.”

Both campaigns are still running and looking for further investors.
