Introduction to Acumen Fund – Yasmina Zaidman Acumen Fund’s Director of Knowledge and Communications London Event
Acumen Fund (acumenfund.org) is the world’s first social venture capital group and believes social entrepreneurship, innovation and choice will bring about the change we want to see in the world, way before pity ever will.
This unique networking event is an excellent opportunity to learn about social entrepreneurship and how entrepreneurs can fight global poverty with dignity.
As the Director of Knowledge and Communications, Yasmina leads an organization-wide effort to capture knowledge from our investment work to share with partners in the international development, philanthropic, academic and corporate sectors that can change practices and bring access to critical goods and services to the world’s poor. Before launching this program, she managed the water portfolio at Acumen Fund, identifying investments that delivered safe drinking water, sanitation and irrigation technologies. Prior to joining Acumen Fund, Yasmina worked in the arena of international environmental protection and social entrepreneurship. She led the Environmental Innovations Initiative at Ashoka, where, as Acting Director, she headed an effort to capture and disseminate the best practices of leading environmental innovators throughout the developing world. Yasmina received a BA from Vassar College and an MBA from Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business, with a certificate in Public Management.
