We only hold accredited investor meetings twice a year, but food and farming entrepreneurs keep innovating, creating and growing; and investors are always looking for the next great opportunity. To keep the deals flowing between Food Investor Network showcases, Slow Money NW has created an investor space on Gust, a specialized service for angel investors to find, review, discuss and invest in businesses. In addition to the companies that are featured in our showcase events, there will be time-sensitive opportunities, longer term investment strategies, and a forum to discuss investments securely, without running afoul of SEC regulations.
Currently we have many more businesses than we can fit into a single showcase event, and we only expect the volume of deals to grow, so we expect the future will see a much larger percentage of the deals and negotiations will take place on the Gust platform, so we would encourage you to join our group. For entrepreneurs, choosing the industry standard angel network platform allows you to easily apply to other networks such as Seattle Angel Conference.

We have been using Gust within our Food Investment Network community to share, preview, and discuss opportunities and coordinate diligence tasks and negotiate deals. You can set up an account here, and once you have logged in, request membership to the Slow Money group. Here’s a brief guide to getting started in Gust for investors. Almost all the deals are currently in the “IN PROGRESS” stage, so please select that from the menu on the left hand side.
For ENTREPRENEURS: Apply to the Slow Money Investment Group for Funding
If your company is already on Gust, go to ‘Search Investors’ and look for ‘Slow Money’. Select ‘Slow Money’ (not Slow Money NYC) and select ‘Share Now’. Slow Money will grant you access and your Private Site will be visible to the network of investors who are approved members of the group.
We look forward to more opportunities to engage, invest, and transform the food system together.
