Woody Tasch is founder and chairman of Slow Money, a 501(c)3 non-profit formed in 2008 to catalyze the flow of investment capital to small food enterprises and to promote new principles of fiduciary responsibility to support sustainable agriculture and the emergence of a restorative economy. He is also chairman emeritus of Investors' Circle, a non-profit network of investors that has facilitated the flow of $145 million to 220 sustainability-minded, early-stage companies and venture funds.
