Acumen is looking for a new member of our East Africa team, to champion our brand and strengthen our community in East Africa.  This is an outstanding opportunity for someone with superior communication skills, exceptional energy, a strong team orientation and a commitment to creating positive change.

Acumen started as an idea. Fourteen years later we have a proven model that combines the best of charity and investing to change the way the world tackles poverty. 

Acumen is a non-profit venture fund with a vision to help build a world beyond poverty through investing in companies that deliver critical goods and services in water, health, housing, 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.

Passion, entrepreneurial spirit, and commitment to tackling the issue of global poverty are just a few of the things that the staff at Acumen have in common. What we aim to accomplish with our work is no easy task, and we need dedicated, high-caliber people to reach our goals.

Acumen has invested more than $88 million of patient capital in more than 80 social enterprises in South Asia, East Africa and West Africa that have collectively served more than 100 million customers. We have teams on the ground in India, Pakistan, Kenya, Ghana, Colombia and New York, and we aim to build strong local structures that are deeply interconnected to the global organization through shared goals.
