Amani Institute is often labeled as being a “school for social entrepreneurs”. Although we welcome entrepreneurs, "our true focus is on building the skills, experience and networks needed for professional success", of which the entrepreneurial mindset is an important skill for everyone, regardless of their topic and position within an organization.
We also believe that there is a critical role for people who prefer to work inside an organization to make an impact – what is now being called an “intrapreneur”. Not everyone needs to launch a new company. Just as important as entrepreneurs are the leaders and managers who help the organization grow and fulfill its potential to solve social problems and improve the world.
Whether you are an entrepreneur or an intrapreneur or you are considering a career change to the social sector, the Amani Institute experience will allow you to accelerate your career by building the skills to be a better leader of social impact through your work.
