About Acumen Fund

Acumen Fund is a non-profit organization that builds financially sustainable organizations that elevate the lives of poor around the world; primarily through entrepreneurial approaches.

Google, a major investor, donated 4,300 sq. ft. of office space to Acumen to house their headquarters for three years.

Our task as the architects was to develop a strategic solution to meet the present needs of Acumen without compromising Google's future ability to occupy the space with a minimum of renovation.
