Farmers, makers, investors and technologists welcome! This event is graciously hosted by The Moderns.

Believe it or not, there are more types of capital than ever before to support food businesses… but they can be challenging to access and it’s hard to tell which type will be the best for each business.
In simple terms, Elizabeth Ü provides valuable insights into the world of finance, including descriptions of various capital options available (including traditional debt and equity, government grant and loan programs, cutting-edge social finance options such as crowdfunding, and community-based alternatives). She will suggest guidelines for choosing capital options are most appropriate given size, stage, entity type, growth plans, mission, and values of an enterprise.
This interactive session will afford participants at least an hour opportunity to ask questions at the end of the presentation.
