Slow Money Institute is a non-profit organization dedicated to catalyzing the flow of capital to local food systems, connecting investors to the places where they live and promoting new principles of fiduciary responsibility that “bring money back down to earth.”
How We Work
And our progress to date
The Slow Money Institute catalyzes the formation of self-organizing local groups, which use a diversity of approaches: public meetings, on-farm events, pitch fests, peer-to-peer loans, investment clubs and, most recently, nonprofit clubs making 0% loans. Since 2010, more than $73 million has flowed, via dozens of local groups, to 752 food enterprises, in deals large and small.
Events and Principles
Slow Money events have attracted thousands of people from 46 states and 7 countries. Over 31,000 people have signed the Slow Money Principles.
