Oslo+Acumen

Founded in October 2012 by Rikki Tidemand and Hanne Brynildsen, Oslo+Acumen is a self-organized, volunteer led chapter, passionate about Acumen’s mission: To create a world beyond poverty by investing patient capital in social enterprises, emerging leaders, and breakthrough ideas. Oslo+Acumen is the first +Acumen chapter in Scandinavia, and second in Europe. Our dedicated team is eager to spread Acumen’s values in Norway and beyond. Unique about our chapter is the age diversity, allowing us to provide a range of perspectives on how to best combat poverty and give back to our local and global communities. Oslo+Acumen consists of talented and passionate individuals, creating inspiring events tailored to the Nordic environment. We seek to educate, serve and fundraise. Our focus is on how development work can be most effective, and what role business may play to achieve tangible change with scalable results.
