Investing in the spread of ideas – Sasha Dichter
Last month we held our 11th annual Investor Gathering. The day is a chance for our partner community to come together to hear updates on our work here at Acumen. Sasha Dichter, Chief Innovation Officer at Acumen, gave a talk on investing in the spread of ideas. Sasha is focused on scaling Acumen’s impact by building on our core investing work to create the ecosystem of leaders the world needs to do this work; and investing in the spread of ideas by digging in to measure and understand the direct impact we are having through our investments and sharing these learnings with the world – so we can all get smarter about what it really takes to tackle poverty at scale.
There are several important themes highlighted in the video, but in many ways it comes down to transparency and trust. The road ahead is tough, but this talk will give you a sense of where we need to go.
Changing the way the world tackles poverty will take all of us. Please consider a tax-deductible donation today! 100% of your gift goes directly to our investments. Click below to donate.
