Co-founder and former CTO of FundedByMe, Arno Smit, has taken on a new role at the investment crowdfunding platform. Smit will now be the lead manager of investor relations as registered members now number over 65,000 individuals. In his place, FundedByme has hired Daniel Wahlqvist, described as a former music industry entrepreneur turned computer engineer, as Chief Technology Officer. FundedByMe, a global platform, will be recruiting new IT/Dev staff to help power their platform growth. The company also stated it will partner with an outsourcing firm as well.
”My biggest challenge in this new role is to know every day that we’re doing the right things for our users – both for entrepreneurs and investors. I want to be sure that we can call ourselves Scandinavia’s number one crowdfunding platform with pride. I love challenges where the odds are on my side – that’s whyI chose to work with this company.”
