June 12: Slow Money Northern California Entrepreneur Showcase
May 19, 2011
RSF is dedicated to exploring new economic models that support sustainable food and agriculture. We seek projects and partners who value diversification, region-first approaches, social justice and ecological stewardship.
One such partner is Slow Money, an organization committed to investing in building an economy based on principles of soil fertility, sense of place, care of the commons, and economic, cultural and biological diversity.
We’re proud to sponsor Slow Money Northern California’s Entrepreneur Showcase on June 12, 2011. The Showcase will bring together 200+ investors, sustainable food entrepreneurs and leaders working to rebuild our local food system.
Over the past two years, several million dollars have been invested in small food enterprises who presented at Slow Money showcases. Now is your chance to invest close to home. Join us at Fort Mason in San Francisco to learn about investment opportunities and how you can participate in rebuilding local economies.
Twelve finalists seeking investment in their small food enterprises will present. These enterprises include new businesses seeking start-up capital, existing businesses seeking growth capital, and non-profits seeking philanthropic capital.
You’ll also have the opportunity to network with a variety of active investors, organizational leaders and visionaries in local food and progressive finance. Featured speakers include Woody Tasch, Slow Money founder and Author, and Ari Derfel, Executive Director of the national Slow Money organization.
