The first Meeting of Slow Money Pioneer Valley was held on 4/11/12 at the Smith College Conference Center. This event immediately followed the PVGrows Spring Forum. Special guests included Michael Bartner, Vice President of the Slow Money Alliance, and representatives from Greater Boston Slow Money.
Slow Money Pioneer Valley (PV), one of the 15 inaugural Slow Money chapters that have been formally launched in 2012, held its ‘launch’ meeting after the PVGrows Spring Forum. PVGrows has made a commitment to hosting and supporting Slow Money PV as one of its working groups. Following its launch, Slow Money PV members works closely with the PVGrows Finance Working Group to provide a new opportunity to bring together investors and entrepreneurs in the Pioneer Valley. In addition, Slow Money PV works with other regional chapters such as Slow Money Boston, Maine, and New York to further regional efforts that spur investment into local food economies.
