Thanks for purchasing a 2016 Westlake Chap Football Program!
My name is Curt Nelson. I'm a co-founder of Austin Foodshed Investors and proud dad of a great WHS sax player, Timo. When we moved to Austin in 2011 (now that was a hot one...) I started doing real estate investments, but soon looked to diversify. In late 2013 my wife suggested, "Curt, why don't you do something good while investing?" and I slapped my forehead like in the movies.
I decided to focus on food because of its impact across so many aspects of society: health, environmentalism, social justice, and frankly, well I just love to eat good farm fresh food. Googling I found a guy here in town, Jarred Maxwell, putting together "good food" deals. By Spring 2014 we'd decided to start AFI, and launched in early 2015.
It is working! We're seeing deals, connecting investors and local sustainable food entrepreneurs, trying to make a difference.
