What we do

We believe in the unique power of social enterprise franchising to unleash the potential of local entrepreneurs to build vibrant economies and improve the standard of living for people in their communities.

Our mission is to accelerate sustainable development by identifying proven solutions to essential needs and applying the principles of franchising to scale their impact and create new jobs.

How we do it

Our international network of franchising experts work with entrepreneurs to design, finance, and execute a social franchise model for national and international growth.

The Stage Six team evaluates a social enterprise's readiness for expansion and compatibility with the franchise model. We advise on franchise system design and build operational capacity to effectively implement it.

Stage Six’s service packages are customized to address client needs and stage of development. We also connect our clients to potential sources of capital to support their expansion efforts.
