Woody Tasch

Founder of Slow Money

“Money sucks the oxygen out of the air, fertility out of the soil, and culture out of the local community."

Woody Tasch is the founder of the Slow Money Alliance, which aims to get a million Americans to invest 1 percent of their assets in local food systems in the next decade.

He believes that local, sustainable food is a good investment: in our communities, our land, our health, and, if all goes well, our pocketbooks.

Prior to Slow money, he was the former chairman of Investors’ Circle, a nonprofit angel network that has facilitated more than $200 million of investments in over 300 early-stage, sustainability-promoting companies and has written two best-selling books on the subject. In 2010 he was named “One of 25 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World” by Utne Reader.
