Slow Money National Gathering & Entrepreneur Showcase

Slow Money Gathering in San Francisco

If you’re familiar with the concept of slow money you know it’s a new way of thinking about investing money sustainably with a focus on food and agriculture. It’s been dubbed one of finance’s biggest recent trends and next week the movement gathers supporters in San Francisco for its 3rd Annual Gathering.

The Slow Money Alliance is hosting its third national gathering in San Francisco next week. It’s an event that will bring together investors, entrepreneurs, farmers, and thought leaders, all with the common interest in changing the world through food and agriculture. The Gathering takes place over three days, October 12th to 14th, and registration is still available.

Entrepreneur Showcase + Foodtree

A highlight of the Slow Money Gathering every year is the Entrepreneur Showcase. Innovative food enterprises are given the opportunity to present their ideas and stories with investors and thought leaders as an example of the innovation happening in the space. Since the previous Gathering in 2010, more than $4.25 million has been directly invested in a dozen of the presenting small food enterprises. Foodtree is among the thirty selected organizations taking part in the showcase, so keep an eye out for our CEO, Anthony Nicalo as he pitches on Thursday.

If you’d like to connect with Foodtree during Slow Money, Anthony will be in attendance for the entire event. He’ll also be participating in a breakout session discussing Mapping Food Sheds on Wednesday at 1:30pm. Stop in and say hello!

Only eating/drinking things we know the source of 100% of the ingredients is going well. But it is a full time job worth of work, between shopping, research and cooking. Sarah, in particular, is strugggling with the not being able to eat whatever friends or family are eating aspects. Next week we are on vacation. But we will still be trying to eat provenance. Next video likely starving in airport…
