Investors' nonprofit to host April event
Since its inception three years ago, Slow Money, founded by Woody Tasch, has emerged as a new funder of local food systems, moving $23 million into small food businesses around the nation, including farms, creameries, grain mills, niche organic brands, local processing, distribution and seed companies, and restaurants.
The event is scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, April 29-30, and will be held at four venues: The Boulder Theater, 2032 14th St.; the Event Center at Rembrandt Yard, 1301 Spruce St.; eTown Hall, 1531 Spruce St.; and the Hotel Boulderado, 2115 13th St.
The event will feature guest speakers, a session for entrepreneurs to make pitches for funding, information on how to integrate elements of microlending, philanthropy and crowdsourcing, and an Entrepreneur of the Year award ceremony.
Registration fees for the two-day event vary from $445 to $945. Investment professionals, foundation officers and consultants pay $945; high-net worth angel investors and accredited investors pay $800; individual investors, food activists and others pay $445.
