Sep

Want to tackle poverty through income generation and job creation? Come and join us for an interactive learning session on the work of Acumen Fund – a pioneering social venture capital fund with more than $60 million invested in over 50 enterprises that serve the poor. ACUMEN 101 will be led by Acumen Fund’s newly-established European Team Vinay Nair and James Wu. Please click here to learn more about Vinay and James (both now based in London).

There will be an introduction on what is patient capital? How does Acumen make investments? How does Acumen find social entrepreneurs and what are the impacts since the 10 years Acumen Fund has been running?

This open session is intended for young professionals, students and anyone interested in impact investing, social entrepreneurship and global development. It will cover the essential objectives and values of patient capital. If you are already a knowledgeable impact investor – please consider attending our session ACUMEN 202 at a later date.
