Acumen makes patient longterm debt or equity investments in early-stage companies providing reliable and affordable access to quality education, healthcare services, formal housing, and safe drinking water to low-income customers.

The patient capital Acumen provides is accompanied by a wide range of support services to support organisational scale up. Its aim in investing patient capital is not to seek high returns, but rather to jump-start the creation of enterprises, and subsequently improve the lives of the poor.

We became a partner of Acumen in April 2017.
