Acumen Fund talk

* Founder of Acumen was in marketing at Cisco

* Malaria nets imperilled by sole buyer’s (UN) discrestion

* So they are building new business models, with local salesmen

* Water in India was always free and always dirty. Monetizing clean water was accepted and in fact changed the economy–men went to get the water instead of women, and then they created a delivery service so no one carries it on their heads anymore!
