ITP is pleased to bring the next ITP National Series event to town featuring technology innovator Anna Guenther.

Anna will share her journey of setting up PledgeMe, New Zealand's first crowdfunding platform. She'll cover the highs, the lows, and provide some top tips for getting started (either with a crowdfunding campaign, or business, or that project you've left in the garage and been meaning to go back to).

She'll also talk about her own realisation that diversity and inclusion are important (spoiler: that wasn't always the case!) and some practical solutions for supporting representation at every level of your organisation.

This event includes light catering and refreshments, please e-mail if you have any special dietary requirements.

About The Speaker

Anna Guenther is the co-founder and Chief Bubble Blower of PledgeMe, New Zealand's first crowdfunding platform. Since launching 5 years ago, over 1,200 creative, community and entrepreneurial campaigns have raised over $16 million 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.

She recently moved to Brisbane to try and launch one of the first equity crowdfunding platforms across the ditch, as Australia has finally legalised equity crowdfunding.
