Acumen Fund is a non-profit global venture fund that uses entrepreneurial approaches to solve the problems of global poverty. We seek to prove that small amounts of philanthropic capital, combined with large doses of business acumen, can build thriving enterprises that serve vast numbers of the poor. Our investments focus on delivering affordable, critical goods and services – like health, water and housing – through innovative, market-oriented approaches.

Acumen Fund’s work centers on:

Providing affordable, critical goods and services to the poor through innovative, market-oriented approaches.

Creating a blueprint for solving the problems of global poverty by building sustainable and scalable organizations.

Getting the business right at every level: design, marketing, pricing, distribution.

By balancing the pragmatic approach of business and the humanitarian element of philanthropy, Acumen Fund is working to build a global marketplace for the poor.

We currently apply our model of identifying and supporting social innovators to three critical areas for the poor: Health, Housing and Water. We work in six countries: India, Pakistan, Egypt, South Africa, Tanzania and Kenya. We measure and report progress regularly to our global community of individuals who share our commitment to change.

Join us for cocktails, dinner and entertainment on November 13 at the Acumen Fund Celebration 2007.
