Food System 6 (FS6) is a non-profit based in the San Francisco Bay Area whose mission is to support impact driven entrepreneurs as they transform how we grow, produce, and distribute food. The organization runs a comprehensive accelerator program that mentors entrepreneurs by coaching them through a wide range of business and organizational needs. FS6 also works to educate stakeholders on the unique capital needs as related to redefining the food system. Learn more about our program offerings and how to apply here.
The history of the world’s food systems are earmarked by major shifts. We believe that the 5th and current food system has exhausted its growth trajectory and that the world is, once again, staged for a major transformation in the way that food is grown, distributed and produced. We know that a sixth, more holistic food system - one that will provide sustenance for all in a way that protects and builds the long-term health and resilience of our environment, our people and our society - is needed to replace it.
