The Northeast Oregon Community Capital Collaborative (NEOC3) continues its examination of the power of local investing by inviting international financial advisor Marco Vangelisti to speak in La Grande, Joseph and Baker City.

Vangelisti came to the United States from Italy as a Fulbright scholar in mathematics and economics at the University of California in Berkeley. After a stint in the financial industry, he worked as a visual artist and obtained an MFA focusing on the intersection between public art and ecology. He later managed investment equity portfolios, primarily on behalf of large foundations and endowments. In 2009 Vangelisti left the finance industry, took all his money out of the stock market and began investing directly in local businesses. He was instrumental in the formation and development of the Slow Money Northern California chapter. Vangelisti wants to share his local investing experience across the country to help people increase local investing in their communities.
