Starting March 1 in Austin, then again on April 13 in Fredericksburg, then throughout 2017 in Lockhart, Georgetown, La Grange, Burnet, and Rockdale, Austin Foodshed Investors will present 1/2 day seminars for local food entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial Technical Assistance Providers on understanding and accessing various kinds of capital to help businesses grow and succeed.
With support from partners Texas Center for Local Food, USDA-FSA, Capital Farm Credit, National Center for Appropriate Technology, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, and the Capital Area Council of Governments, local food company owners and managers can learn about the range of funding alternatives available, how to prepare to talk to a bank or any other investor, how to finance a business you don't intend to ever sell, and who's available to help.

Several AFI Investor Network members have requested more "in-person" events. It is fun to hang out with each other! And what better way than to hear from three local sustainable food entrepreneurs about their upcoming investment opportunities.
Please join us Wednesday, 2/22/17 at Hopfields, from 4:30 to 6:30pm to hear from three cool local food companies in the process of raising money.
This is a low-key, AFI-style event. No pitches, no projectors, just 20 minute Q&A with each entrepreneur, followed by 20 minutes of roundtable for all the entrepreneurs and all the investors, followed by dinner and drinks if you'd like to stay.
This event is only open to members of the AFI Investor Network. For information on joining AFI, please visit our Invest page.
Please RSVP via Eventbrite by clicking the image below.
Thanks, and hope to see you there!
