A Newsletter That I Actually Read

February 26, 2012 § Leave a comment

I first heard about the Acumen Fund through Seth Godin and have loved following their work since.

They don’t traditionally fall into my list of passions – harnessing the power of innovation and markets to change the way the world tackles poverty, though within this they advocate some powerful and radical ideas and practices. Jacqueline Novogratz is the founder and CEO of Acumen. Her TED presentation (below) is something very special – an example of true leadership.

Her letter to supporters is a thing of beauty – read it at the bottom of this link.

  1. It’s actually a letter – ‘from the desk of Jacqueline Novogratz’ even!
  2. Lots of stories
  3. Names and details about individual staff and partners
  4. Emotions – what’s hard, what is going well?
