We are proud to announce our partnership with Slow Money Austin. Inspired by the national Slow Food and Slow Money movements, Slow Money Austin was formed to promote capital opportunities for local, organic and sustainable food enterprises throughout Central Texas.
Consider attending their upcoming events to learn more about Slow Money and to make a sustainable regional food system a reality! Seats are limited.
SLOW MONEY AUSTIN SHOWCASE & HAPPY HOUR
April 21st, 12:30PM-5:00PM
Austin City Hall, 301 W 2nd St
Slow Money Austin is bringing a conversation about financing our regional food system to the steps of City Hall with an educational conference featuring leaders of this emerging industry. Local, organic and artisan-crafted food and drink are cherished assets among communities throughout the nation. Beyond the health and environmental benefits of local food production, such resources, if properly cultivated, can directly power local and regional economies. Calling for a new form of venture capital, this special event promises to redefine the value and worth of a healthy local food system, and to examine the role risk capital can play in fueling growth of such a vital market.
The showcase will be followed by a networking happy hour and all attendees will receive 2 drink tickets.
