Let’s Change the Game of Business.

Our Mission

We help businesses embrace and ignite an all-important trinity: innovation, diversity and social impact.

Big things are inevitable when you’ve gained success in all three. The Jamii Group is a business consulting firm dedicated to showcasing the untapped talent in communities of color and under-served areas. By partnering with leading innovators, our talented team helps your business grow with ease and efficiency. Are you ready for a renewed business mindset?

  • Creating Connections
    Companies that value compelling facts, big data sets and engage thought-provoking strategists move beyond the status quo and experience success, increased revenues and ride the wave to top competition.
  • Finger on the Pulse
    Your next business solution, new product or service has the potential to come from several ecosystems in your industry.  We can help you navigate these ecosystems to stand out from the rest of the crowd.
  • Innovating Always
    By disrupting emerging industries, new companies are built, innovators are given the space to create and high-growth firms are recognized as the industry giants.
  • Partnership United
    We have an eye for like-minded, success-hungry business partners like you. Our talents excel in solution-based partnerships and we are confident that hiring our team will yield endless possibilities.

Our Philosophy

In collaboration with our cutting-edge business strategy, bonafide changemakers can access a community of seasoned partners to successfully stand out and achieve their goals.

Meaningful change begins with a few simple principles:

Diversity is the new normal

There’s untapped talent in all walks of life, and we thrive when connecting with a wide range of experts.

Quality data is in our DNA

The more knowledge you have, the smarter decisions you can make.

Old ways won’t open new doors

Always innovate! Don’t think outside the box, act like there is no box. Never get too comfortable and create something impactful.

Change starts at home

Your community shapes your foundation–use your most prized family values to support untapped communities through intergenerational change.

We create partnerships to generate wealth.

No matter who your company might need to take the next step—aspiring entrepreneurs, funding professionals, private sector partners, academic institutions or government agencies, to name a few—we can develop relationships with the right resources to kick your business into high gear. We’re always growing our network to our clients’ advantage.

We make business introductions with your success in mind.

At the Jamii Group, we understand that success often comes down to adapting to the evolving needs of the target audience, and knowing the right people or partners to complement your services. Through our focus on data, evidence-based strategies and a diverse network of innovators, we help businesses evolve and succeed in an ever-changing landscape.

Our Expertise

Test your limits with a smart approach.

Our services are grounded in the values of concrete facts, substantial data sets and impactful, thought-provoking strategies. We solve our client's problems in an agile manner as we work across boundaries and between silos of any organization to achieve long-term success.

“Without data, you are just another person with an opinion.”
These are famous words by W. Edward Deming, a renowned economist and innovation expert.
This motto rings true throughout our company and guides us in making smart business decisions for companies like yours.
