Featured Speaker Woody Tasch

Woody TaschWoody Tasch is the founder and chairman of the Slow Money Institute, a nonprofit organization with dozens of local groups, formed to catalyze the flow of investment capital to small food enterprises and promote new principles of fiduciary responsibility that support sustainable agriculture and the emergence of a restorative economy. Slow Money took root in 2009 with Tasch’s groundbreaking book Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money: Investing as if Food, Farms, and Fertility Mattered. Tasch is widely regarded as a pioneer of the concepts of patient capital, mission-related investing and community development venture capital. Tasch is now working on the sequel to his first book, revisiting the movement’s fundamental principles. Slow Money investors around the country have moved $49 million into 519 small food businesses to date.
