Acumen Fund Launches New Web Site, Fellows Blog

Acumen Web Site ScreenshotTime to update your RSS feeds: Acumen Fund has launched a new, RSS-compatible web site (the site is a re-design of their previous effort).? In addition to being syndication-friendly, the new site is rich with stories, photos, videos and lots of dynamic content.? I like how they’ve organized things around their three pillars: capital, knowledge and talent.? For more on this three pillars approach, check out my post from the annual Investor Gathering last week.

While you’re checking out the new Acumen site – be sure to read Jacqueline Novogratz’s recent Pakistan and India journals, by the way – also add Immersion to your RSS feeds or bookmarks.Immersion is the title of the 2008 Acumen Fund Fellows blog.? The seven fellows – with whom I met a few weeks back – are working in India, Pakistan and Kenya, and have been blogging regularly about their work and personal lives “in the field.”? I’ve enjoyed the early posts, and encourage NextBillion readers to check it out.
