Slow Money Pioneer Valley hosts first “Entrepreneur Showcase”

The Slow Money PV Chapter  was pleased to host its first Entrepreneur Showcase on  January 28, 2014.  Six local food system entrepreneurs told their story to interested investors.  Over 80 PVGrows members attended this event, designed to provide investors with concrete opportunities to align their dollars with their values.  Plans are underway to replicate this successful event in the coming year.

For investors, the Entrepreneur Showcase provides access to sustainable food and farming enterprises at different stages of development, from the start-up phase to the expansion of existing businesses. Participating businesses are seeking different levels of financing— from small loans to major capital, as well as donations. The Slow Money PV Chapter encourages investors of all resource levels to attend these Showcases, including institutional, individual, accredited, and unaccredited investors.
