continue the 2009-10 “Social Entrepreneurship in the 21st Century”
Speaker Series with Slow Money President and Investor’s Circle Founder Woody
Tasch. As president of Slow Money, a 501 c 3 formed in 2008, Woody is working
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.

295 Lafayette Street.  All are welcome, but space is limited and an

Now in its forth year, The Social
Entrepreneurship in the 21st Century Speaker Series features a remarkable
selection of social entrepreneurs and related leaders who have launched
extraordinary programs, companies and movements addressing the most pressing
challenges of the 21st century.

meta-profession drawing on cross-disciplinary knowledge and practice, the
series presents prominent social entrepreneurs and leaders from across the
spectrum of public and professional sectors who will share their insights as
cutting-edge, far reaching change makers.

 

Other
speakers this year include Honest Tea Founder and TeaEO Seth Goldman, Former
