TECHNOSERVE:
TechnoServe’s work is rooted in the idea that given the opportunity, hardworking men and women in even the poorest places can generate income, jobs and wealth for their families and communities.

TechnoServe is a nonprofit consultancy that provides business and technical assistance to entrepreneurs in the developing world. By improving the private sector and economic value chains, TechnoServe seeks to catalyze economic growth to eliminate global poverty. Since 2001, TechnoServe has engaged over 700 Volunteer Consultants (typically business consultants on sabbatical) in 3-12 month projects ranging from assessing markets and industries to working directly with TechnoServe clients. Volunteer Consultant alumni chapters exist in New York, Boston, San Francisco, London, and most recently Chicago.

ACUMEN FUND:
Acumen’s vision is that one day every human being will have access to the critical goods and services they need – including affordable health, water, housing, energy, agricultural inputs and services – so that they can make decisions and choices for themselves and unleash their full human potential. This is where dignity starts – not just for the poor but for everyone on earth.  Acumen’s mission is to create a world beyond poverty by investing in social enterprises, emerging leaders, and breakthrough ideas.
