Slow Money NYC
We spark dialogue and action addressing the nexus of where our food comes from and where our money goes.
Slow Money NYC is a local network of Slow Money, a national non-profit, catalyzing investment in sustainable food and farms.

Foodshed Investors NY is a network of angel investors connecting with local food business owners who need capital. It’s not a venture fund. Or a bank. Or an investment club. Or a financial institution of any kind. Foodshed Investors links local angel investors with local businesses seeking funds. It’s a potent alternative to Wall Street, and a way for everyday folks to keep more of our money circulating close to home.
The Local Farms Fund is a high-impact, socially responsible farmland access venture co-founded by nine Slow Money NYC visionaries and Working Farms Capital. The venture was established to provide secure land access to sustainable early stage farmers in the New York City Foodshed through lease-to-own arrangements with the goal of accelerating land ownership for the farmers that will be feeding us in the future
Slow Money NYC is a trustee for Kiva Zip to provide our members with a tangible and actual means to fulfill our mission to catalyze investments fund small, local sustainable food and farming enterprises. Kiva Zip makes 0% interest loans for 100% social good and uses an entrepreneur’s network as a measure of creditworthiness. Borrowers invite family and friends to start their fundraising. After reaching a designated threshold, the Kiva Zip community takes care of the rest. It’s a simple, transparent way to help small businesses.
