Acumen Fund is a non-profit venture fund that exists to help end poverty by changing how the world addresses it. We invest patient capital to identify, strengthen and scale business models that effectively serve the poor. And we champion the spread of this approach as a complement to traditional aid, which can create dependence, or pure market approaches, which can bypass the actual needs of the poor.
