Investment Opportunities

[vc_column_text width=”1/1″ el_position=”first last”]

Over the last couple of years, Slow Money Northwest has connected over $5 million in capital with businesses seeking to expand. Our primary mechanism has been the Food Investor Network, our list of accredited investors and financial institutions dedicated to sustainable food and agriculture.

We hold semi-annual showcase events where businesses make their pitch for equity, debt, or creative partnership investments that meet the impact and financial goals of both parties

Invest in local business.  We hold semi-annual investment showcases in Seattle and Portland, highlighting exciting new businesses that are seeking early stage investment, or seeking to grow. These events are restricted to accredited investors only for several reasons, primarily federal laws.

As you may be aware, there are new crowdfunding regulations that have recently been promulgated to enable Kickstarter and IndieGoGo style fund-raising efforts.  While the regulations have not been finalized, we are watching closely to see how regular people who care about healthy food can be part of the change.  Please watch this space or join our mailing list for updates if you are interested in the future of crowdfunding the sustainable food system. In addition, we are exploring options for creating more efficient and lower risk options to participate in the regional food economy.  To learn more about these, or to request an invitation to one of our Investor Showcases, please contact us at info@slowmoneynw.org

Support our efforts to grow the regional food economy with a direct gift, via the form below. Please enter the amount of your gift and click the button to be taken to the secure site to complete your transaction.
