Ask Acumen: A Video Response to Your Questions about Water
Two weeks ago, communities around the world celebrated Blog Action Day. 5,711 blogs from 143 countries around the world rallied around the theme of water, spreading awareness and inspiration for this cause.
In the spirit of Blog Action Day, we got inspired to get proactive and interactive with our posts by reaching out to our community of followers with a video from our water portfolio manager, Marc, in which he asked you to contribute your most pressing questions about Acumen Fund and our work in water.
We call this experiment Ask Acumen. Questions poured in via blog comments, facebook, twitter (@AcumenFund), our Community site, and over email. We listened and sorted through the topics you were most interested in, and now we’re back with a response video from Marc, below.
In response to Marc’s answer about social business mentoring, there are a few other programs we would like to mention:
- Ashoka Changemakers
- Echoing Green
- Dasra Social Impact
- New Ventures
- Unreasonable Institute
- Global Social Benefit Incubator (GSBI)
Unfortunately we could only pick a few questions to respond to for this installation of Ask Acumen, but we would like to thank all of you who submitted. We invite you to contribute to Ask Acumen next week, as we debut our second episode, centered around the Acumen Fund Fellowship program.
