Evolution and Expansion: Our What’s Next

Over the last six years, Acumen has built a community of CEOs and Owners in Kansas City to create a more significant impact and influence for all constituents.

Like many businesses in the last year we evolved, innovated, and streamlined to grow when that time was right. In the beginning, our hypothesis for a high impact community was about going deep in one market. Then, once a core of teams has been formed and our processes in place, look for new markets.

It’s time and here’s what’s next.

Staying True to Who We Are
First, we’re committed to focusing on building high performing communities that impact and influence locally and regionally while evolving and expanding without leaving our core values

Acumen will Sharpen, Challenge, and Inspire owners and key executives into the future.

Our Purpose: To Ignite a Higher Standard of Business Platform Impcat and Influence

Our Mission: To create a Catalytic Community that Sharpen, Challenges and Inspires CEOs and their Key Executive Leaders.

Our Promise: To help you Grow your Top Line, Optimize your Bottom Line, and Enrich your Storyline.

Acumen’s Kansas City community currently has 80 owners and CEOs and should be at 100 by year end. We’re launching a new team this month towards that goal. We’ve also picked our newest region in the Front Range with Denver being the hub. And we’re vetting several other regions for launch next year.

To ring in this new season for our company and our accelerator communities we’re rolling out an exciting brand refresh, enhancement, and accentuation with our logo and website.

On our site you’ll see how we’ve taken our existing branding and “amped it up“ (if you will) to better reflect the “journey“ forward.

Acumen’s logo evolved too. Our inspiration from Proverbs (Iron sharpens Iron) is still present, and we’ve added new meaning to it, specifically: Foresight, Hindsight, and Insight. (More detail in the image below).






All of us have evolved over the last year. This evolution of Acumen will take us into our next phase of growth as we expand into the Front Range – starting in Denver, and beyond.

If you are looking for an exclusive community of CEOs/Owners to impact your business platform and enrich your storyline – Come and See!
