Whether in a boardroom in New York or on an investee field trip in Pakistan, Acumen Fund has a tradition of sharing everyone’s ‘ah-ha’ after a good discussion has been had.
We ask Acumen Salon guests to share their ah-ha moments – the key take away, new perspective, memorable comment or parting thought – from the evening.
Our hope is that these thoughts will spark further conversations online and will perhaps trigger a few reflections within others.

The comments above reflect the ah-ha moments that were shared with permission following our Salon conversation on the theme of The Aid Debate, held on Tuesday, January 31st at Irish Heather.
