We help local sustainable food companies to raise growth capital, work with experts, and meet investors. For investors, we curate a new asset class of deals that align personal and investing values while emphasizing capital preservation, market returns, cash flow, and personal interactions with cool entrepreneurs. We’re inspired by the Slow Food and Slow Money movements , and invigorated by the vibrant Austin food scene.

We do this to grow Central Texas’ supply of triple-bottom-line (planet, people, profit) entrepreneurs who create living wage jobs for respected workers; good, clean, fair food within a robust regional food system, with stable climate, healthy soil, and humanely treated animals; and quality investment opportunities.
