Meet Our Speaker Alumni | Anna Guenther – How crowdfunding is going to change the word

The power of the crowd.

Anna Guenther is used to crowds… crowdfunding, that is. On the TEDxTeAro stage in 2012, Anna shared the story of being a cofounder of PledgeMe – New Zealand’s first crowdfunding platform.

Describe your TEDxTeAro experience

It’s a great way to connect with other people interested in doing things differently.

What was the effect of TEDxTeAro, professionally and personally?

I’ve had more speaking engagements, made new friends and received a lot of high fives. It’s fantastic having a TEDx talk to show people.

What have you been up to since you were on the TEDxTeAro stage?

Lots of crowdfunding. Ranting about feminism. Co-creating an unconference for Women Who Get Sh*t Done. Growing a social enterprise. Life!

So, what’s next?

More of the above 🙂

What was your one takeaway from TEDxTeAro?

He tangata, he tangata, he tangata.
