I was first introduced to the term "slow food" while working at the Farm Institute, a teaching farm on Martha's Vineyard. Slow Money, if I understand it correctly, is about local vesting, something I have done since I've been young (unknowingly). I grew up on an island and local support for businesses is vital to a year round economy on the Vineyard. In my opinion, slow money, is about insuring the local farm is a viable enterprise. It does not just look at the "profit motive," rather it applies alternative values that make a community a nice place to live. Slow money can be used to build and maintain a viable community that leads to greater food security on a local level.
I have been a member of one CSA or another since 2003. Recently, my family participated in a meat CSA which was awesome.
Yes, I am starting a equity crowdfunding platform which I hope will be active member of Boston's Slow Money Movement. Conceptionfund.com is currently underdevelopment.
My co-founder in Conception Fund told me about it
Hello, I am a budding entrepreneur creating an equity crowdfunding platform (conceptionfund.com). I look forward to becoming active in this group and learning more about the slow money gaining traction in Boston.
