Helping Entrepreneurs Work Together To Grow Businesses Rooted in Agriculture

LocalFoodSystems.org is a collaboration platform that promotes strong local and regional economies by offering tools that help entrepreneurs build business ecosystems rooted in agriculture.


Entrepreneurs can use the tools on this site to connect their business idea into a supply chain network of locally owned businesses, existing and planned, and together with other entrepreneurs and locally owned businesses find the capital needed to launch their businesses. Food is of particular interest both to entrepreneurs and consumers, hence the name localfoodsystems.org, but other basic needs like energy, equipment, services and materials that are part of agriculture are of equal importance.
