AMI’s 10-Year Impact: Empowering 1.5 Million Livelihoods Across Africa

AMI’s annual report highlights decade-long impact, supporting 37,000 businesses, creating 97,000 jobs, and $130M revenue.

The African Management Institute (AMI) has released its 2023 annual impact report, titled 10 Years as An African Champion for Africa’s Business Champions, which highlights how Africa’s leading business and management learning company impacted 1.5 million livelihoods in the last decade through its support of 37,000 African businesses. 

The report underscores the impact of AMI’s practical learning programmes on business growth and job creation at scale across the continent, with 97,000 jobs created and $130 million in incremental small business revenue generated – with an outsized impact for youth and women.

Africa’s businesses and employees are the continent’s engines of growth and prosperity. Through our decade of providing Africa’s ambitious businesses with practical tools and training, we know that businesses grow faster and people perform better when they engage in practical business learning that can be immediately applied on the job.

We’re particularly proud of our work with thousands of talented women business leaders across Africa. Our latest data shows women and youth outpace the average on all key business metrics, including revenue growth, job creation and access to finance.

Rebecca Harrison, CEO and co-founder, AMI

AMI was founded in 2013 to address the lack of effective and scalable business and management learning for Africa’s ambitious business owners and teams.

The report outlines lessons and stories from AMI’s high-impact model for business learning and growth support at scale.

We knew that traditional training couldn’t achieve real change. Our approach had to be obsessively focused on practice – providing business owners and their teams with practical tools to underpin the daily habits and behaviors needed to build strong companies. In our first ten years, that’s what we’ve delivered and as Africa’s ambitious businesses continue to grow, we’re looking forward to the next decade of spurring further growth.

Jonathan Cook, Co-founder and Chairman, AMI
