Acumen Fund

http://www.acumenfund.org/ten

Our mission is to create a world beyond poverty by investing in social enterprises, emerging leaders, and breakthrough ideas. We use philanthropic capital to make disciplined investments – loans or equity, not grants – that yield both financial and social returns. Any financial returns we receive are recycled into new investments. We believe that pioneering entrepreneurs will ultimately find the solutions to poverty. The entrepreneurs Acumen Fund supports are focused on offering critical services – water, health, housing, and energy – at affordable prices to people earning less than four dollars a day.
