Te Arawa talent to head crowdfunder
Crowdfunding platform PledgeMe has appointed Claire McGowan of Te Arawa as its new chief executive.
Dr McGowan has a PhD in microbiology and has worked in venture capital and finance, including heading business incubator Soda.
Co-founder Anna Guenther says more than 60 percent of Pledgeme’s crowdfunding campaigns were female-led, so it’s exciting the company will continue to have a woman at the helm.
She is also the first Māori CEO of an equity crowdfunding platform.
