Acumen is 15 years old this month! When this organization started, there was a lot of explaining to do. Was it a nonprofit? An investment operation? A leadership incubator? An educational group? A humanitarian organization?
Turns out, the answer is, yes. In those 15 years, Acumen has invested $101 million in 92 companies, creating and supporting 58,000 jobs and impacting 189 million lives. Along the way they have also nurtured 343 fellows, shared their wisdom 320,000 times on their open learning platform, and inspired a whole generation who believe that investing is a means, not an end.
So we cheer, with gratitude,
