Slow Money Inaugural Conference

I am just getting back in the office after attending a fired up Slow Money Inaugural conference in Santa Fe, NM last week! Over 400 hundred leaders/change agents were in attendance representing farmers, entrepreneurs and investors from around the world.

Notable attendee's:
Paolo de Croce, the head of Slow Food international, Italy
George Sieman, CEO of Organic Valley
Greg Steltenpohl - Founder Odwalla
Tom Miller - Former Head, PRI's Ford Foundation
Don Schaffer - CEO - Rudolph Stiener Foundation
Etc., etc., etc.

The three day event kept the attention of everyone, leaving us full of energy, passion, and plenty of action items to help elevate Slow Money into international recognition/status. People attending came from Italy, Australia, the UK, and all but 18 of the United States! So what can you do to support Slow Money?

First Action Item - go to , read the principles and if you agree with them - SIGN THEM!

Second Action Item - Go to: - check out the video created the 2nd evening after the conference. If you stand behind Slow Money, then give $5.00 to the cause. After participatin, get out there and start sharing this Seed Slow Money Link with your social media networks (facebook, twitter, Linkedon, etc). Slow Money is launching a 1 week long Social Media Blog effort to raise money for Slow Money through $5.00 individual investments. Let's see how much we can raise!
