Acumen's mission is to change the way the world tackles poverty by investing in companies, leaders and ideas.
Acumen invests patient, long-term capital in innovative and sustainable startups that deliver critical goods and services to the world's poor. Since 2001, we have invested $106 million in 96 companies that have attracted more than $522 million in follow-on capital and impacted 200 million lives. We work closely with our companies to help the overcome challenges and listen closely to customer feedback through our Lean Data work.
Acumen also works to build a global community of emerging leaders that believe in creating a more inclusive world through the tools of both business and philanthropy. Since 2006, we have built a global community of more than 340 Fellows to support the next generation of leadership. We are partnering with great companies like Unilever, GE, IKEA Foundation, EY and Bain that understand the need for more inclusive business models. We have begun to share what we are learning through +Acumen, an online platform to help move ideas into action that has seen more than 400,000 sign-ups across 175 countries.
