A guest post from our friends and partners at the Acumen Fund:
If you care about market-based approaches to poverty alleviation, then the Acumen Fund Fellowship might be a dream job. Seriously - you can spend a full year living and working at the nexus of development and enterprise! Of course, there's an application and an interview process, and Acumen Fund is looking for a specific kind of person - someone with "the moral imagination, the practical skills and the leadership potential to effect real change," as Acumen Fund's Deepti Doshi put it on the Acumen Fund blog.
If you are interested in the base of the pyramid sector and believe you have the skills and experience to contribute to this mission over the next year, please apply. If you're happy doing what you're doing, fantastic. But I'm sure you know a few people for whom the fellowship is indeed a dream. Please send them our way.
