We are a group of community leaders concerned about the social, economic and cultural needs in relation to local food in BC.

HOW IT WORKS

You pitch, we fund! We invest with low interest loans... with benefits. Every loan comes with an experienced mentor businesses can leverage as they build their business.

PITCH SESSIONS
 

Members attend our semi–annual pitch sessions where they hear local food businesses pitch their business ideas. Members vote on their favourite business. One member, one vote. Finalists move forward for due diligence and adjudication by the Investment Committee.

CONNECT
 

Our events and pitch sessions let members connect, discuss the value they find in investing in their community, and become more engaged in the investment process. Not to mention, they're a lot of fun.
