Why are you interested in Slow Money?

Capital isn't reaching the masses the way it could; a vast majority of it is also exported from communities towards Wall Street; and because money shouldn't be an end in itself, like quarterly earnings expectations, etc.

What other ways do you support a sustainable local food system?

I don't believe sustainable food systems are inherently local; that is a very narrow view. Farmers around the globe are affected by food consumption choices made in Cambridge, MA - making sure we see and understand that is how I support a more equitable/just system. I think information is key here, and many food firms are not transparent.

Do you have any investment experience? (None required!!)


How did you hear about the GB Slow Money MeetUp group?

Friends in the Bay Area in Slow Money.


Interested in culture/economics/bu­siness/policy side of food; I was a peasant farmer once. I like the idea of cooperatives. Lived in East Africa. Family from Thailand. Capitol Food Ventures is my new startup - business advisory for food/ag biz.
