Acumen Fund Leadership Initiative

Commitment by

Acumen

In 2010, the Acumen Fund committed to developing national leadership initiatives in East Africa, Pakistan, India, and beyond over the next five years. The initiatives will invest in twenty individuals per year from diverse sectors, cultures, and economic backgrounds who are driving social change within businesses, public sector organizations, governments, and non-profit organizations. Through the program, these leaders will develop skills around the merger between business and society through seminars and regional trips focused on business, poverty, empathy, leadership, influence, and patient capital. By connecting and investing in these individuals, Acumen will create an interconnected web of hundreds of global leaders who share values, are driving change, and have a deep commitment to building a more inclusive economy and social system.
