Slow Money Body Language

Indigenous Co-Founders Scott & Matt had a great time presenting at this years Slow Money National Gathering at Fort Mason in San Francisco 

Thousands of Americans have begun affirming a new direction for the economy. It's called Slow Money, and people have literally started to embody the movement. 

 Slow money national gatherings are quickly emerging as a significant new venue for field building, investing and social change. 

The Slow Money Alliance is bringing people together around a new conversation about money that is too fast, about finance that is disconnected from people and place, about how we can begin to fix our economy from the ground up. 

What would the world be like is we invested 50% of our money within 50 miles of where we lived? 

What if there were a new generation of companies that gave away 50% of their profits? 

What if there were 50% more organic matter in our soil 50 years from now? 

We can bring money back down to earth!
