Are you a food enterprise looking for funding or exposure?

We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting Entrepreneur Showcase applications for Slow Money 2014 in Louisville, Kentucky,November 10-12.

 Over the past few years, Slow Money gatherings have emerged as a significant new venue for field building, investing and social change. A hallmark of our gatherings is the Entrepreneur Showcase, in which promising food enterprises from around the U.S. take the stage to share stories and present their businesses.

 

Emma Zimmerman (L) of Hayden Flour Mills, an organic grain mill in Tempe, AZ, and Eric Kornacki (R) of Revision International, a Denver-based community-owned food cooperative, both received Slow Money investments at last year’s gathering in Boulder, CO.

 

Since mid-2010, $35 million has been invested into over 300 small food enterprises via 19 local networks and 10 investment clubs and more than $7 million has been invested into 35 small food enterprises that have been invited to participate in our National Gathering Entrepreneur Showcases.

 

“I consider attendance at Slow Money’s inaugural National Gathering to be one of the formative events of my life.”

” JANIE HOFFMAN, FOUNDER AND CEO, MAMMA CHIA

In addition, Slow Money gatherings have garnered significant media coverage, from outlets including  The New York Times, Barron’sThe Denver PostSan Francisco Chronicle,  The Wall Street Journal, and KCBS TV in San Francisco.

 

Janie Hoffman, middle, who sought funding for her beverage company Mamma Chia at the second Slow Money National Gathering, applauds the presenting entrepreneurs during last year’s Showcase.

 

“The gathering was absolutely magical and I was amazed at how many investors were there. We raised all of the funds we were looking for.”
MASON ARNOLD, GREENLING CO-FOUNDER AND CEO
