Acume will remove elitist and outdated barriers for accessing academic knowledge. Set on endorsing local academics role, Acume wants to make locally produced and community-tailored insights available for easy implementation by the international community. By bringing experts and representatives from local communities into the decision-making process, professionals can access contextual insights to increase sustainable impact for the world's most vulnerable communities.
Acume is building a new platform for professionals to quickly find and read research, which can then be easily implemented across important decisions, projects and policy. Academic insights were not readily available to professionals because they're complex, locked-away, expensive and time-intensive to read. Acume solves this with a database of concise, translated and action-orientated academic insights.
"I wholeheartedly believe this initiative will radically normalize how academic research is used in decision-making across the international affairs and development sector," says Yasmine Finbow, the CEO, of tech-startup Acume.
Acume supports governments and NGOs to drive meaningful change across the world by harnessing the power of academic ideas. They transform relevant, quality and useful academic content into concise and valuable insights for busy professionals working across international affairs and development.
