Food entrepreneurs and investors gathered for educational workshops and live investment presentations to catalyze funding for food ventures at this year’s Food Funded summit.
The 2022 summit is an opportunity for food entrepreneurs and investors to convene for educational sessions and investor presentations to “catalyze the capital flow in our food and agricultural system.”
The May 25 event was convened by Slow Money Northern California and J.E.D.I Collaborative.
This year’s keynote touched on the impact of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) and climate action, recognizing that planet justice and people justice are inherently related.
Mission Driven Finance Co-founder and Chief Community Officer, Lauren Grattan, and Community Finance Fellow, Xitlali Villa, spoke at the event about regenerative practices and funding alternatives for early-stage founders.
