Slow Money Northern California

On Thursday, June 6, 2019 at the Golden Gate Club in San Francisco Slow Money Northern California will host their 5th annual Food Funded event.

400+ food entrepreneurs and investors will convene for a day of educational workshops and live investment presentations to catalyze the funding flow for food ventures.

What does Slow Money mean? Answer: Investing in real places, in people and enterprises close to home. Investing patiently, over time, with a goal of building healthy enterprises, communities and ecosystems, not just extracting financial wealth. Measuring Return on Investment by the tangible world we create around us and the health of our soil, not just the profit we make.

"Of all the food entrepreneurship events I participate in, Food Funded is my favorite place to make new friends, have authentic conversations and to explore ideas and opportunities to follow up on."
