Money & Meaning Summit

September 10, 2015 - September 12, 2015

Since money it is such an easy thing to measure, it tends to be the first and only yardstick we use when it comes to assessing our place in the world. Because relatively meaningless and abstract financial capital is what we focus on, it’s easy to lose sight of the real natural, social, human and spiritual capitals which sustain us.

At this conference we are going to take a crack at fusing money and meaning together and dig into what Slow Money really means.

We know that Slow Money can catalyze the flow of capital to local food enterprises and organic farms, connecting investors to the places where they live and “bringing money back down to earth.”

Let’s find out how. We’ll delve into alternative finance, social enterprise, patient capital, and the role money plays in our lives.

Join us in Pittsboro for a whirlwind of insights into our relationship with money and learn how we might better deploy it to feed, fuel, and finance ourselves.
