Profiling multi-sector and serial entrepreneurs, as well as investors in emerging markets for more, informed strategic investment purposes while providing business consultation services


(Meeting Babson College affiliates along the way)

Welcome to Jamani Stories, a subsidiary of Jamani Corporate Group!


I am Jacob Fohtung, MBA Class of 2019 and Masters of Science in Finance Class of 2020 at Babson College (No. 1 in Entrepreneurship in the U.S. by U.S.News & World Report). In 2018, I founded Jamani Corporate Group, a conglomerate of platforms that aim to build emerging markets via funding, consultation,  in-depth entrepreneurship research, and education. I am also the founder of Impactfulally, an entrepreneurship education consultation platform using Babson's Entrepreneurial Thought & Action Methodology.


Jamani Stories is my very own passion project and independent study course supervised by Dr. Phillip Kim, an internationally recognized expert on entrepreneurship and Associate Professor of Entrepreneurship at Babson College. 



This project will be filled with unique and engaging content on stories of amazing multi-sector and serial entrepreneurs in emerging markets. Explore my site and all that I have to offer; perhaps Jamani Stories will ignite your own passions as well.
