Slow Money Boston - Entrepreneur Showcase

Join us on April 29th for the Slow Money Boston Entrepreneur Showcase!

We will be bringing together investors, sustainable food entrepreneurs and leaders working together to rebuild our local food system. Learn about investment opportunities and how you can participate in rebuilding local economies based on the principles of soil fertility, sense of place, care of the commons and economic, cultural and biological diversity.

The entrepreneurs presenting are:

Buckle Farm

Slant Shack Jerky

Bill's Seed Project @ The Ivory Silo Farm

Artisan Beverage Cooperative

Southern New England Meat Processing Facility & Retail Store

The Compost Plant


For investors:

The Entrepreneur Showcase will provide access to sustainable food and farming businesses at different stages of development from start-up to expansion of existing businesses. The businesses and initiatives are also seeking different levels of financing — from small loans to major capital, as well as donations. Slow Money Boston encourages investors of all resource levels to attend including institutional, individual, accredited, and unaccredited investors. This showcase event is not an offer to sell securities or a solicitation of an offer to buy securities.

For Entrepreneurs: The Showcase is a tightly produced event. Each entrepreneur will have five minutes and 6 slides to tell their stories, followed by 5 minutes of Q&A from the audience. Presenters will also benefit from the networking opportunity specifically designed to encourage and elevate investor dialog. Throughout the event, your collateral will be available for attendees, and you will be mentioned in all promotional materials for the event.  It is free to apply, but costs $25 to present and take advantage of this exciting opportunity.


The Entrepreneur Showcase offers all the advantages of a traditional venture fair and many more. Because of the shared vision that brings us all together, it is an unparalleled opportunity for you to build relationships with investors and entrepreneurs from all over the region. Even if you are not an investor or presenting entrepreneur, we welcome and encourage your participation in the event!


Thank you to our sponsors for making this event possible!

    While I really would like to go, and feel it's important, the cost is beyond my budget.

    • Julia S.

      It's great that you're so interested in the principals of Slow Money. Unfortunately, this is what we must charge to produce such an event. We will be having another event in June; I hope you can join us then.

    Hi,

    Thanks

      Hi Jessica. Yes, you can "just come" to watch presenters. All are welcome. If you click on the RSVP button it should prompt you to pay through PayPal.

  • Carole S.

    I am not sure how to post my application to present on April 28th. I sent it to Julia.
    Thanks,
