Dear Food+Tech Meetup Members:

Please join Slow Money NYC and Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture on April 22, 2012:
Earth Day Entrepreneur Showcase:
Slow Money and Local Investment Opportunities

Eliot Coleman, Author & Farmer, Four Season Farm, Maine
April 22, 2012 (Earth Day!) 3-5 pm

What better way to spend Earth Day than with a group of food entrepreneurs and
investors who are working "to bring money down to earth"?

Please join us for a program featuring remarks by local Slow Money Leaders
Chris Lindstrom, Derek Denckla and Brian Kaminer and presentations by six
pioneering food entrepreneurs now seeking capital:
- Brooklyn Grange: commercial rooftop farm in NYC acre;
First Field Ketchup: NJ organic farm with a line of value-added products;
Farm to Table Co-Packers: food processing facility for small farms;
Window Farms: manufacturing a DIY kit for home-grown food; and
New York Mouth: online source for local, indie food makers.
Eliot Coleman: Slow Tools: an opportunity for partners to create ventures based on his open source farm technology.

If you are a good food activist, an impact investor, a sustainable business
entrepreneur, a foundation trustee or program officer, or an individual who is
wondering whether there is life after fast money and fast food, this program
presents a wonderful opportunity to participate in what Entrepreneur.com
called "one of the top five trends in finance" and Rodale called "one of the
top ten trends in organics."

The Slow Money Alliance now has 14 chapters, including one in New York. More
than $16 million has been invested over the past 18 months in over 100 small
food enterprises under the Slow Money banner, using a variety of new
engagement strategies – investment clubs, investor networks, and entrepreneur
showcases.
