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!
