Farmers and small food producers are increasingly savvy about marketing their own products and very often need investors to help move their business to the next level. John’s experience in this niche is exceptional and he will introduce the basic concepts necessary when approaching potential funders. And, all class attendees will receive a free copy of the Slow Money Primer, authored by John Friedman
