Preamble

Kia ora, 

Welcome to PledgeMe’s handy guide on stuff you need to know to run an equity crowdfunding campaign. We’re really excited you’re considering going out to your crowd for investment. You’re definitley in the right place. This guide will prep you for the journey. It will explain the ins and outs of what you need to get ready, and answer any manner of questions you may have. 

PledgeMe is here to help.

We’re pretty good at it too, we have already helped hundreds of projects and tens of PledgeMe.Equity campaigns raise millions of dollars in New Zealand.

We put that experience to work for you in CrowdfundingU, our crash course in running a PledgeMe.Equity campaign. We’ll help you plan and provide feedback on effective pitches, videos, and (almost) anything else you need to make your campaign awesome.

We don’t pick and choose who should run a campaign, we let your crowd decide which are successful.

So if you’re looking for capital and have a business plan, financials, and — most importantly — a crowd, then you’re in the right place.

Because we are regulated by the Financial Markets Authority we have a duty to understand your offer and understand your background. Businesses of all sizes can benefit from capital and we’ll help you present your offer (offer = what investment folk call a campaign) both professionally and transparently to potential investors. 

We hope you find this guide helpful and if you have any further questions contact us.

Cheers,

Anna and the PledgeMe team
