Open Letter from CEO, Caesaré Assad
Dear FS6 Community,
I transitioned into the CEO position just months before COVID-19 took us all by storm. Faced with difficult decisions about the direction of our organization and unsure of our own financial future as a non-profit, Food System 6 forged ahead to find the most determined, most promising entrepreneurs confronting the worst food crisis in modern U.S. history.
FS6 is a nonprofit 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 it relates to redefining the food system.
