The event will feature a beautiful photo exhibit curated by Nuru Project for NY+acumen to highlight Acumen Fund's mission to create a world beyond poverty where all people have dignity. Prints will be available for sale and at auction, and 50% of all photo proceeds will go directly to Acumen Fund investments. The event will take place at the historic New York City Fire Museum, and will feature an open bar with beer & wine, and catered food.
Acumen Fund is a non-profit social venture capital fund that uses an innovative investment model to solve the problems of global poverty. Acumen Fund leverages patient capital – disciplined philanthropic capital investments comprised of loans or equity that yield both financial and social returns – to invest in enterprises that seek to deliver critical goods and services such as water, healthcare, housing and energy, and education to the world’s poor. Over the past 11 years Acumen Fund has invested over 76 million dollars across 69 companies, which have in turn created 55,000 jobs and impacted 86 million individuals.
