Enabling ambitious businesses across Africa to thrive
Learning that equips entrepreneurs and managers with the tools and training they need to succeed.
AMI is pioneering practical business and management learning for Africa. We equip entrepreneurs with key tools to build their businesses, we help companies build motivated and productive workforces, and we run work-readiness and entry-level programmes for young people starting their careers.
Survive to Thrive
Designed to support Africa’s ambitious entrepreneurs and business owners, this virtual business growth programme provides leaders of SMEs with the skills, tools and strategies to navigate the challenges and opportunities presented by the Covid-19 crisis, to thrive now and in the future.
The AMI Thrive community is a vibrant and ambitious network of businesses, entrepreneurs and leaders from across Africa. Rooted in a weekly email and accompanying free public networking and learning events, the community is a supportive space where individuals have the opportunity to network with other like-minded entrepreneurs, learn from each other and grow themselves and their businesses.
