What’s New in 2023 at the RFSI Forum

Regenerative Food Systems Investment is pleased to announce the 5th annual RFSI Forum on September 26-27 – the ONLY event that exclusively brings together investors, capital activators, and critical stakeholders working to build regenerative food systems. The RFSI Forum is the gathering to catalyze meaningful conversation, advance education, and drive increased investment in regenerative agriculture and food. Whether you have been engaged in the regenerative space for decades or you are just a little curious, this event offers unparalleled insight from and networking opportunities with leaders in investing and regeneration.

Last year, the sold-out event gathered a diverse group of stakeholders from across both the regenerative supply web and the capital landscape. Topics ranged from farmer perspectives on the barriers to adoption and financing, investment in regenerative farmland real assets, how to bring institutional capital the regenerative space, the role of large food corporates in building out the supply chain, and how venture capital and philanthropy can play a role in advancing innovation in the space. This year, along with more rich and informative content, and more amazing regenerative food, attendees can expect to connect with 500+ attendees, learn from 45+ speakers, and make valuable connections during 9+ hours of networking. But there’s more…

Here’s what’s new this year:

Same Great City, Bigger Venue!
Last year we sold out, and so this year we’ve secured a bigger venue – the Seawell Ballroom in the Denver Performing Arts Complex. This venue is conveniently located in downtown Denver, within walking distance to many hotels, restaurants, and more. Plus, we have a great hotel rate at a nearby hotel.

New Networking App
You asked for more ways to connect, and we responded! This year all attendees at the RFSI Forum will have access to a valuable networking app that will allow you to connect before, during and after the event, set up meetings, and know what’s going on throughout the event.

Farmer Scholarships
