Sustainable Ag Lecture Series - Fall 2016:
Growing Small Food and Farm Businesses
A panel discussion with Woody Tasch of Slow Money and local food entrepreneurs
Evening off-campus event co-sponsored by Slow Money SLO
Morning on-campus event co-sponsored by Cal Poly Investing Club, Net Impact, and Slow Money SLO
We were honored to host Woody Tasch in San Luis Obispo for our Taste of the Future dinner in 2012. His last visit inspired and accelerated a burst of food system activity in San Luis Obispo county, including the formation of the local SLO chapter of Slow Money. We are excited for his return visit and his update on the state of Slow Money! To view a video of Mr. Tasch, please go to: https://vimeo.com/79540217
Featured Speaker Woody Tasch
Woody 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.
