About anna1

Anna Watson

Smooth Operator

Anna, our CEO and co-founder, sounds American but she's definitely a Kiwi. If pushed, she’ll say she’s technically from Dunedin, but will later admit she grew up in Boston. Having roamed around the world, she’s back to call Wellington home. And she completed her Masters with a focus on crowdfunding and has worked for everyone from NZTE to MIT (and all of the acronyms in between).

Email Anna

Barry's our Irish blow-in. He's a rebel banker with an eye for fresh financial ideas. Whether it's crowdlending or equity crowdfunding that you're curious about, he's always happy to lend an ear and share some insight.

Anna is our token outdoors enthusiast. She has a background in corporate law and social enterprise, and sees PledgeMe as a happy middle-ground between the two. When she's not getting herself lost in the wilderness, she is busy making sure our operations side of things are smoother than smooth peanut butter.

Tan brings home the bacon for amazing kiwi businesses (faking bacon for our vegan friends). His background is in tech, business development and raising capability.

Tan loves travelling to far-flung parts of the world, bringing back a love of scotch whisky, craft beer and food. He is also Vietnam’s tallest man (a fact) and fluent in Vietnamese.

Kelsey is our designer extraordinaire. She's in charge of creating stunning new designs, taking fabulous photos and pulling her hair out when she gets asked to make things “pop”. She is also the city host for The Design Kids Wellington.

Jessie is PledgeMe's indefatigable intern. She does a lot of the social media and blogging for us and she's currently studying law and film. We hope she will make us some legal films at some point.
