Welcome to Pledgeme!

PledgeMe helps Australian and Kiwi companies turn their plans into reality with equity crowdfunding. Equity crowdfunding is a way for companies to raise investment by offering shares to their crowd of family, friends, and fans online.

Who does it work for?

Equity crowdfunding is a tool that allows the public to invest in your company in a transparent and effective way. Successful campaigners have three things in common:

Good Company

They've already started, even if it's just in a small way, and have a clear business model for their company. They can clearly explain what their growth plans are, and how it will help their company scale.

Good Crowd

They have a crowd that loves what they do! It could be customers, or it could be family, friends and fans who have been watching them get started.

Good Comms

They are able to communicate what they are doing and what their plans are. This shouldn't be over promising, but it should be clear.

What’s happening in Australia?

29 September equity crowdfunding was legalised federally. And, we are licenced to provide it.

There are 2.1 million small to medium sized businesses here. Yep, there are a lot of growing companies in Australia!

But, over 200,000 SMEs say it's hard to raise expansion capital. According to a 2015 Deloitte report. It shouldn’t be that hard.

Warning Statement

Crowd-sourced funding is risky. Issuers using this facility include new or rapidly growing ventures. Investment in these types of ventures is speculative and carries high risks.

You may lose your entire investment, and you should be in a position to bear this risk without undue hardship.

Even if the company is successful, the value of your investment and any return on the investment could be reduced if the company issues more shares.

Your investment is unlikely to be liquid. This means you are unlikely to be able to sell your shares quickly or at all if you need the money or decide that this investment is not right for you.

Even though you have remedies for misleading statements in the offer document or misconduct by the company, you may have difficulty recovering your money.

There are rules for handling your money. However, if your money is handled inappropriately or the person operating this platform on which this offer is published becomes insolvent, you may have difficulty recovering your money.

Ask questions, read all information given carefully, and seek independent financial advice before committing yourself to any investment.
