ACUMEN LATIN AMERICA CATALYZES INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS TO BENEFIT VULNERABLE POPULATIONS
WE’RE BUILDING THE SYSTEMS TO HELP MOVE MILLIONS OF LATIN AMERICANS OUT OF POVERTY
In 2013, we opened operations in Latin America with a focus on Colombia and Peru. An in-depth analysis of the causes of poverty and inequality in the region led us to develop a strategy focused on benefiting communities that have suffered political, economic and social exclusion (small farmers, women heads of families, afro-descendant and indigenous communities); as well as a special interest for rural areas.
Our team is based in Bogota is continually evaluating investment opportunities in the region and looking for agents of change to invite them to participate in our Fellowship program
WE INVEST IN INNOVATIVE COMPANIES
WE DEVELOP LEADERS THAT CHALLENGE STATUS QUO
We support leaders with the skills, determination and moral imagination they need to challenge social dynamics. Our Fellows Program supports people who are executing innovative and high-impact initiatives for their regions. Our goal is to provide knowledge, a support system and provide spaces for the practical application of concepts that help them discover their full potential and more effectively promote social change.
