About Us

Stage Six builds and supports impactful and sustainable social businesses that are using the franchise model to rapidly and dramatically scale in emerging markets around the world.  Companies in our portfolio tackle a wide spectrum of social needs (i.e. health, education, water, sanitation, food security, and clean energy) in a range of geographies.  What unites them is the model that they use to scale – franchising.

Our Approach

We find franchise-ready social enterprises with the desire to expand.  Those that meet our standards are invited to join Stage Six as a portfolio company in exchange for a share of their future success.  Stage Six portfolio companies receive ongoing customized technical support designed to help them progress through the six stages of growth outlined in the diagram below.  Stage Six also connects its portfolio companies to a blend of financing options to support growth.
