FE2015__021We can’t believe it’s been an entire month since Food + Enterprise.

The Wall Street Journal gave us their feedback on Food + Enterprise + Pitch: http://www.wsj.com/articles/a-sort-of-shark-tank-for-food-artisans-1425667828.

“Last weekend, a crowd of investors, entrepreneurs and consultants packed a modish Brooklyn warehouse to hear funding pitches from some of the city’s buzziest startups….”

Now, we’d love your feedback, so fill out this Survey.

Since the Summit, we’ve been busily promoting the funding of those “buzziest startups” — Pitch Finalists from both 2015  AND 2014 on Barnraiser and Kiva Zip, respectively.

FE2015__048Our “slow” community set a new speed record  on Kiva Zip– funding a $10,000 loan to The Fresh Connection in less than 4 days! Thanks to all who participated.

Barnraiser and Kiva Zip represent a new initiative by Slow Money NYC to develop relationships with funding platforms for local sustainable food and farm businesses at various stages of development. For a full range of financing options, check out the “Get Funded” page on the Food + Enterprise website.

FE2015__034We’ve also had the chance to review some of the feedback we’ve received from F+E event-goers. Here are some of the nice things folks had to say about Food + Enterprise:

“It was particularly great to see people from so many stakeholder groups in the room – we’re so often stuck in our own little silos.” 

“Great people! I made so many great connections and learned so much.”

“I attend a lot of food industry related events and I’ll be the first to say — not all of these events are created equal…This event is definitely one that will be remembered… There is nothing more motivating than being in a community with folks who love what they do!” 

We’d love to hear from anyone who attended Food + Enterprise.  Help us make the event serve to build our “slow” community by filling out this Survey.  Thanks!
