For over 17 years, our Fellowship, a rigorous leadership program, has brought together a cohort of extraordinary individuals working on problems of poverty and equipped them with the knowledge, skills, and community needed to strengthen their leadership and scale their impact to create meaningful change in their regions. 

In addition to running numerous Accelerator programs in Vietnam and Southeast Asia, the Acumen Fellowship launched in Malaysia in 2021. Since then, three cohorts of extraordinary leaders have completed the program. In 2024, the Fellowship expanded to include countries across Southeast Asia.
