Company Description

AMI was founded in 2014 by Jonathan Cook, former director of South Africa’s Gordon Institute of Business Science, and Rebecca Harrison, a foreign correspondent and social entrepreneur.We shared a vision for a million skilled managers and entrepreneurs building thriving businesses, creating jobs and getting Africa moving. But we saw there was something missing. While there is no shortage of talent in Africa, there is a critical lack of business and management skills. Most traditional training solutions are expensive, ineffective and ill-suited to dynamic Africa markets. We created AMI because we believe there was a better way to learn, and that with the right tools and habits, entrepreneurs and managers across the continent could be empowered to drive Africa forward.

AMI enables ambitious businesses across Africa to thrive through practical tools and training. We equip entrepreneurs with tools to build their business, help companies train their teams and run work readiness programmes for young people. Our programmes combine mobile tools with in-person workshops and on-the-job practice and support.

AMI is expanding rapidly. We have raised investment, opened offices in Nairobi, Johannesburg and Kigali and trained over 27,000 people in 15 African countries.
