Interested in learning more about patient capital, impact investing, and social enterprise?
We are pleased to invite the DC community to a happy hour with the DC+Acumen team at Hawthorne on Wednesday, March 29th from 6:30-8:30 PM. Your $5 donation to Acumen will get you a wristband for drink specials including $5 blue moons, $7.50 tito cocktails and $6 kamikazes, all on Hawthorne's private rooftop with a fantastic view of the city. Tickets will be $10 at the door -- cash only.
The event will begin with a networking session to meet the team and other change makers in the DC area. We will also share a brief presentation on the mission and work of Acumen.
Acumen is a non-profit global venture fund with a vision to help build a world beyond poverty through investing in companies that deliver critical goods and services in areas such as health, energy, agriculture, and education; leaders who are paving the way for new approaches to fighting poverty; and the spread of ideas that will give the world the knowledge and the understanding to change how the world tackles poverty.
For those interested in volunteering with our chapter, this is a great way to meet the team and hear about our next events.
Can’t make the event but want to get involved? Donate to Acumen to help innovative social enterprises like d.light design in Kenya, Siembra Viva in Colombia, or LabourNet in India.
