What better way to spend Earth Day than with a group of food entrepreneurs and investors working “to bring money down to earth”?
Slow Money NYC is one of 15 chapters nationwide. Over the past 18 months, more than $16 million has been invested in 100+ small food enterprises under the Slow Money banner, using a variety of new engagement strategies – investment clubs, investor networks and entrepreneur showcases.
Please join us for a 2-hour program featuring presentations by 6 pioneering food entrepreneurs now seeking capital:
- Brooklyn Grange, NYC rooftop farm building its second airy acre;
- First Field Ketchup, NJ organic farm crafting value-added products;
- Farm to Table CoPackers, Hudson Valley small-batch food processer;
- Window Farms, DIY kit for home-grown food; and
- New York Mouth, NYC online store for small, local, indie food makers.
- Eliot Coleman, a Director of Slow Money, will offer opportunity to create ventures from open source farm technology called Slow Tools.
AND learn of new visions from Slow Money Leaders, local & national:
- Woody Tasch, Executive Director & Founder, will share innovations launched by Slow Money chapters putting money to work where they can see, touch, and taste the results.
- Chris Lindstrom will give context “Transition From Soil to Oil.”
- Derek Denckla & Brian Kaminer, Co-Chairs of Slow Money NYC, will wrap up with info on new investment channels for local food ventures
If you are a good food activist, impact investor, sustainable business entrepreneur, a foundation trustee or program officer or an individual who is wondering whether there is life after fast money and fast food, this program presents a wonderful opportunity to participate in what Entrepreneur.com called “one of the top five trends in finance” and Rodale called “one of the top ten trends in organics.”
