In times of uncertainty, we are faced with two choices; Wait and follow or step up and lead.
This new moment demands a cohort of determined individuals with the moral imagination to rethink institutions and take on inequality and injustice.
Acumen Fellows are such individuals—locally rooted yet globally connected builders bent on reimagining self and systems.
If you’re ready to step up and lead then apply to become an Acumen Fellow.

Fellows are entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, and organizational builders who dare to do what’s right, not what’s easy. While they may come from diverse cultural, geographic, and socioeconomic backgrounds and work in a range of sectors
