are drawn from a pool of talented, passionate people from all geographies,
sectors, backgrounds and ethnicities.
Since graduating its first class of
Fellows in 2007, the Fellows Program has continued to grow and expand, using the
experiences of each class to continue building a unique training curriculum
specifically focused on leadership and social enterprises. Fellows Alumni have
called the program a life-changing experience, and one that allowed them to
build critical business skills and a better understanding of the challenges
involved in serving low-income consumers around the world.
We are also
excited to welcome our new Class of 2009-2010 Fellows
Over the coming weeks the 2010 Fellows will be training and actively
preparing to support Acumen Fund investments. The Fellows have committed to
sharing their experiences both from New York and on the ground, so expect to see
frequent posts from them on the Acumen Fund blog http://www.acumenfundblog.org
