Slow Money, which promotes investing in sustainable food, is hosting another Greater Boston Entrepreneur Showcase on Tuesday, April 24th, and is seeking investors and entrepreneurs interested in participating:
Slow Money Greater Boston Entrepreneur Showcase
Cambridge Innovation Center – Havana Room, 1 Broadway, Cambridge, MA
Tuesday, April 24, 2012
6 – 9 p.m.
We will be bringing together investors, sustainable food entrepreneurs and leaders working together to rebuild our local food system. Learn about investment opportunities and how you can participate in rebuilding local economies based on the principles of soil fertility, sense of place, care of the commons and economic, cultural and biological diversity.
For Investors: The Entrepreneur Showcase will provide access to sustainable food and farming businesses at different stages of development from start-up to expansion of existing businesses. The businesses and initiatives are also seeking different levels of financing — from small loans to major capital, as well as donations. Greater Boston Slow Money encourages investors of all resource levels to attend including institutional, individual, accredited, and unaccredited investors. This showcase event is not an offer to sell securities or a solicitation of an offer to buy securities.
For Entrepreneurs: The Showcase is a tightly produced event. Each entrepreneur will have five minutes and 6 slides to tell their stories, followed by 5 minutes of Q&A from the audience. Presenters will also benefit from the networking opportunity specifically designed to encourage and elevate investor dialog. Throughout the event, your collateral will be available for attendees, and you will be mentioned in all promotional materials for the event.
The Entrepreneur Showcase offers all the advantages of a traditional venture fair and many more. Because of the shared vision that brings us all together, it is an unparalleled opportunity for you to build relationships with investors and entrepreneurs from all over the region. We are confident that, if chosen to participate, you will have opportunities to make important connections that add value to your enterprise. Even if you are not an investor or presenting entrepreneur, we welcome and encourage your participation in the event!
Please submit your application no later than Wednesday, April 1, 2012. Demand for participation in the Showcase is high; spots will fill up.
To apply: send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you the application. It is free to apply, but costs $25 to present and take advantage of this exciting opportunity.
