Description

Calling all Early Stage Food System Entrepreneurs to join FS6 for an Open Cohort Workshop!

We invite all early stage food system entrepreneurs to join us at the Kaiser Family Foundation offices for this 1-day program designed to provide you with practical tools to effectively manage your vision for food system change. You will have the opportunity to network with other change agents, hear directly from investors, and learn from practitioners in the FS6 Accelerator ecosystem. Lunch will be provided.

About the Workshop:

Understanding how your organization delivers and captures value is a critically important skill for start-ups managing for business growth and social impact. Being clear about your value is a foundational requirement to succeeding in a competitive and fast-changing landscape. A session, presented by PATH, is designed for early-stage food system entrepreneurs to define their impact in those two key areas.

The program will focus on these four key takeaways:

1. Vision – Companies that stand the test of time are clear both about who they are today and what impact they want to make many years into the future. As the first step of the workshop, entrepreneurs will define the overall vision of their organization to use throughout the rest of the day.

2. Business Model Canvas – Describing and designing your business model is the next step in creating a strong foundation to scale. Equally important is taking those assumptions and challenging them through the lens of your vision to see where your organization can work better.

3. Success Metrics Scorecard – Enterprises will use their Business Model Canvas to both prioritize and balance key areas of impact as well as define what success looks like as the business grows.

4. Intro to Impact Evaluation – This segment, led by Toniic, will expose participants to impact evaluation frameworks and approaches to gain insights into how and when these tools can be applied to inform your business strategy.

Following these workshops, FS6 will host a panel and group discussion on financing your impact venture. You will hear a range of perspectives from across the capital landscape on topics such as impact investing and blended capital. To learn more about Blended Capital and our perspective on its role in scaling impact in the food system, please read this two-part series.
