WHAT IS SLOW MONEY?

Investing in real places, people and enterprises close to home. We call this Nurture Capital.

Investing patiently, over time, with a goal of building healthy enterprises, communities and ecosystems, not just extracting financial wealth.

Measuring return on investment by the tangible world we create around us and the health of our soil; the triple bottom line, People, Planet, Profit.

 

Providing balance to Fast Money, often invested with focus only on profit, in unknown places and products.
