Course Description

"What does social impact mean? How does Acumen break down social impact when considering potential investments? How can you apply the same concepts elsewhere? One of the most common questions we get is how we measure our impact. Is it just the number of lives impacted? How do we know if the goods and services our companies provide are improving lives?

Together with Acumen’s Impact Team, we’ve developed this introductory course to share how we analyze impact in our portfolio and how you can apply the same building blocks to any socially-focused company or organization that you are personally excited about.
