Established in 2009, VANCOUVER+acumen is a volunteer-led chapter supporting Acumen Fund’s mission to create a world beyond poverty by investing patient capital in  social enterprises, emerging leaders, and breakthrough ideas.

As one of 15 global +acumen chapters, VANCOUVER+acumen supports this mission by building a local community of socially-oriented leaders and cultivating an understanding of Acumen Fund’s values through our Salon Conversation Series, Case Competitions and Workshops and knowledge and fundraising events including our annual DIGNITY Vancouver photography auction.

Since its founding in 2001, Acumen Fund has invested more than $45 million in enterprises that provide access to water, health, energy, housing and agriculture inputs to low-income customers in South Asia and East Africa.
