Woody Tasch is the Founder and Chairman of Slow Money. Slow Money is a movement, but also a small non-profit organization, headquartered in Boulder, Colo., with an alliance of national and international chapters. Slow Money took root in 2009 when Tasch, a poet and former venture capitalist, wrote “Inquiries Into the Nature of Slow Money: Investing as if Food, Farms, and Fertility Mattered.” Tasch pioneered the integration of asset management and philanthropic purpose in the 1990s as treasurer of the Jessie Smith Noyes Foundation and founding chairman of the Community Development Venture Capital Alliance. For 10 years, through 2008, Tasch was chairman of Investors’ Circle. Tasch is now working on the sequel to his first book, revisiting the fundamental principles of Slow Money, based on the experience of the last four years launching the organization and movement.
