Rooted Investing is happy to announce the groundbreaking of its new green housing project in Portland. Join us at our community meeting to discuss why we brought the Emerson Street House project to the King Neighborhood.
About Diane Freaney
My current project is Rooted Investing, a community investing philosophy, which is the polar opposite of traditional investment strategy taught at business schools and practiced on Wall Street. I believe in investing in our community and I love sharing ideas. I suppose I “should” be retired now, but I am having too much fun.
