Acumen Fellows Global Gathering

Location: Naivasha, Kenya


Acumen will convene its global community of Fellows (10 years of cohorts) for the first time at the Acumen Fellows Global Gathering.

Designed to stimulate intellects, forge relationships and challenge assumptions, the Gathering will bring together the experience and wisdom from some of today’s most dynamic and creative entrepreneurs and emerging leaders with select partners and leaders from business and civil society with the goal of building and strengthening a diverse global network committed to solving the toughest issues of our time.

The three-day journey will include specific talks focused on where markets succeed and fail to bring critical goods to the poor, partnerships, key lessons around specific sectors (energy, agriculture, water), fighting corruption, crossing lines of difference, building businesses for the poor in post-conflict zones, and more. It also will entail a fair amount of values-driven work, a mix of storytelling, adaptive leadership exercises and “Good Society” discussion sessions.
