Food System 6 Short Overview
Food System 6 (FS6) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, focused
on fostering innovation that will improve the environmental, physical and
social health of the food system. To help advance change in the food system,
FS6 works with the most promising for-profit and non-profit entrepreneurs who
are developing transformative solutions across the food and agriculture value
chain. By working closely with these teams, typically two participants per
company, we are able to influence their trajectories and also aggregate a wide
range of knowledge about the evolution of our food system that we use to
support and educate other stakeholders including corporations, funders,
investors, and others. FS6 has executed two cohorts with 17 companies, of which
13 are for-profit and 4 are non-profits. Additional information regarding our
current portfolio can be found here: www.foodsystem6.org/portfolio.html

The deadline for Cohort 3 candidates is 11:59pm on Sunday, February 4th.
There is no cost to participate in the FS6 Program. Participants are responsible for lodging and transportation. This is a non-residential program and requires participation in 3 (3) day sessions, based in the SF Bay Area.
Why You Should Work With Us
FS6’s innovative, non-residential, four-month cohort model provides tailored support and technical assistance to teams of both for-profit and non-profit entrepreneurs, and delivers valuable content and programming at critical points throughout the program. We host three multi-day in-person sessions where we focus on elements of our program that are broadly applicable to all cohort members. For example, our entrepreneurs hone their storytelling skills to better connect with customers, partners, investors and other stakeholders crucial to achieve success.
Our position, working hands-on with our teams, establishes a
sense of trust with each company that enables us to continue to support our
entrepreneurs beyond the formal cohort program, we anticipate for 1 – 3 years. In addition, this close working relationship
gives us a unique perspective across the full food system at the intersection
of innovation, investment and impact that enables us to support, inform and
influence the direction of the food system towards #FoodSystem6.
