Looking for a new kind of social investing for the 21st century? If so, plan to join Slow Money’s emerging network of thought leaders, investors, donors, farmers, social entrepreneurs and everyday folks for their 3rd National Gathering this October in San Francisco. Three days of conversations, network building and action planning on an historic wharf in a food-loving town. What could be better?
The list of speakers is phenomenal: award-winning scientist, environmentalist and broadcaster David Suzuki; global thinker, scientist and acclaimed authorVandana Shiva, named by Forbes as “one of the seven most influential women in the world“; Wes Jackson, founder of The Land Institute, which for 30 years has conducted cutting-edge research on sustainable agriculture; Leslie Christian, CEO of Portfolio 21; and many more.
There will also be investment presentations from two dozen small food enterprises and break out sessions on topics ranging from New Visions of Corporate Philanthropy to Mapping Local Food Sheds, plus the opportunity to collaborate with folks from around the country who are finding new ways to connect money, culture and the soil—including members of the 11 chapters channeling millions of dollars into local small food enterprises.
The Slow Money National Gathering brings together people who are rebuilding local food systems across the U.S. and around the world. More than 1,000 people attended the first two national gatherings—resulting in more than $4.25 million invested in 16 small food enterprises!
