Acumen Fund Website Design

Before they redefined the space, nonprofit venture philanthropy pioneers, Acumen Fund, sought a partner to help them make their case and help shape the field of social enterprise. For over 3 years, MSDS partnered with Acumen Fund help do exactly that. Central to our relationship was creating an innovative website that could grow alongside the nonprofit as they expanded operations and increased their impact.
