Jonathan Fields

Jonathan Fields is on a mission to illuminate and improve the human condition. A New York City dad, husband, award-winning author, entrepreneur and strategist, 800-CEO-READ named his last book Uncertainty: Turning Fear and Doubt Into Fuel For Brilliance the #1 personal development book of 2011.

Fields founded and currently runs media and education venture, Good Life Project, where he and his team produce a broadcast-quality web-show and top-rated podcast, along with a series of acclaimed events, trainings and the Camp GLP annual summer-camp for grown-ups. Bigger picture, GLP is a movement to bring together people in the quest to inspire the pursuit of life well-lived.

Fields also speaks globally on living a good life, the power of belonging, mission-driven entrepreneurship and innovation. He’s been featured widely in mainstream and online media, including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, FastCompany, Inc., Entrepreneur, USA Today, People, O Magazine, Self, Fitness, Elle, Allure, Outside, Slate, Vogue, CNBC, FoxBusiness, PBS Nightly Business Report and thousands of other places that sound cool, but don’t impress his daughter all that much. When not building ventures and telling stories, he can be found dancing around his living room with his wife and daughter…and writing in the third person.

Woody Tasch

WOODY TASCH IS THE DYNAMIC and visionary founder and chairman of Slow Money, a nonprofit headquartered in Boulder, Colo., with an alliance of national and international chapters. Slow Money took root in 2009 with Tasch’s groundbreaking book “Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money: Investing as if Food, Farms, and Fertility Mattered.” As Tasch traveled the country on a book tour, audience members stepped forward one by one, inspired to create within their local communities the change he spoke about.

Tasch is widely regarded as a pioneer of the concepts of patient capital, mission-related investing and community development venture capital. For 10 years before founding Slow Money, he was the chairman of Investors’ Circle, an angel investor network that since 1992 has invested $172 million in sustainability-promoting startups. Tasch was founding chairman of the Community Development Venture Capital Alliance and treasurer of the Jessie Smith Noyes Foundation during the ’90s, where as part of an innovative mission-related venture capital investing program a substantial investment was made in Stonyfield Farm, now the world’s largest maker of organic yogurt.

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 since launching the organization and movement. Today, trend spotters cite Slow Money as a solution to manage the interrelated issues of economic crisis, sustainability, food sourcing and cultural renewal. Slow Money investors around the country have moved $38 million into 350 small food businesses to date, including farms, creameries, grain mills, niche organic brands, local processing, distribution and seed companies, and restaurants.
