Changing the way the world tackles poverty Our mission is to change the way the world tackles poverty by investing in companies, leaders, and ideas. We started Acumen to change the way the world tackles poverty; to influence traditional charity by moving from a top-down approach toward one that’s bottom-up: approaching low-income people as part of the solution, seeing investment as an important tool for change, and insisting on stronger metrics of accountability. Today, there is a vibrant and growing “impact investing” sector with hundreds of funds and billions of dollars being invested in companies tackling some of the biggest social issues of our time. Along the way, we also discovered that without the right talent, these companies fail.
