Slow Money National Gathering

Since our inaugural event in 2009, Slow Money’s National Gathering has emerged as a significant new venue for field building, investing, and social change. The event features dozens of food entrepreneurs who are leading the way rebuilding local food systems around the country, along with many renowned thought leaders in agriculture, investing and philanthropy.

Slow Money national gatherings have attracted thousands of people from 36 states and several foreign countries. Since mid-2010, over $21 million has flowed from Slow Money funders to more than 180 small food enterprises around the country and a few abroad. There are now 16 Slow Money chapters in the U.S. and one in France. Six investment clubs have been formed. In October, the Soil Trust was launched, creating the opportunity for small individual contributions to play a big role in the Slow Money movement.

The program of Slow Money National Gatherings integrates internationally recognized thought leadership, next generation social entrepreneurship, and an environment that fosters shared learning across the full spectrum of backgrounds—from the most sophisticated financiers to individual investors, from farmers to food entrepreneurs.

The program also includes elements of film, music, and Meet the Author sessions, because fixing the economy from the ground up is not only a financial activity, but also a cultural one.

    I would love to be at this event. I attended the VT and SF events but time and money constraints kept me away this year so I'll be watching and tweeting on-line. Who else will be present on-line? Carole
