This years (un)Conference will be followed by a Fundraising Panel featuring an amazing group of women with a lot to teach us about how to get your business funded. We are excited to welcome:

Sara Batterby of The Batterby Group who has working in Venture Capital, has raised money as the co-founder of Hi-Fi farms, and now helps other women business owners get the funding they need.

Julia Niiro of MilkRun. Julia launched MilkRun in 2017 after falling in love with small scale farming, but seeing first hand the difficulty of being a small scale producer. MilkRun was created to solve the marketing and logistics hurdles of small producers, using technology to replicate joint collection and delivery.
