Our Events

Good Food Spotlight

From November 2016 forward, Slow Money NYC has consistently produced the Good Food Spotlight bi-monthly with a rotating set of partners including Foodworks, Kiva, Hot Bread Kitchen, Entrepreneur Space and Grow NYC. By rotating partners, we have brought the Spotlight format to new neighborhoods in three NYC boroughs and built a following among a more diverse entrepreneurial base. The Good Food Spotlight has featured 35 companies in the local/sustainable food and agriculture, and engaged with an enthusiastic audience of over nearly 250 entrepreneurs, investors and experts in the local food community. 

Jeffersonian Dinners

Starting in 2017, Slow Money NYC has started hosting quarterly Jeffersonian Dinners in NYC and the Hudson Valley, focused on creating illuminating conversation around the challenges and rewards of patient capital.
