ACUMEN REGIONAL FELLOWS PROGRAM

When Fellows join the Regional Fellows Program, they embark on a leadership journey. Over the course of the year, Fellows engage in deep reflection, challenge their assumptions about the world, and strengthen their moral compass. Through these programs, we hope to create an interconnected web of global leaders who share values, collaborate with each other, and drive change.

But there's lots more to do

Acumen started as an idea to combine the best of markets with the best of aid and charity. Now we have a proven model that’s giving the poor access to everything from ambulances to electricity.
