Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of salespeople working for you! All the other members carry several copies of your business cards with them. When they meet someone who could use your products or services they hand your card out and recommend your services. It’s as simple as that!

It’s simple because it’s based on the proven concept of “what goes around, comes around.” If I help you, you’ll help me and we will both benefit as a result. Would you like to increase your business by 20%, 30%, 50% or as much as 100%? You can see results like this! Many have. Some participants have added as many as 50 new clients in the first 2 years!!!

A Word from
Our Founder

Ivan Misner Reflects on 30 Years of BNI®

Our Philosophy

The philosophy of this organization is built upon the idea of “Givers Gain®”: By giving business to others, you will get business in return. This is predicated on the age-old idea of “What goes around, comes around.”

Our Mission

BNI India is India’s largest and most successful business networking organization. We offer our members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts, and most importantly, business referrals!

Our Core Values

BNI is built on a set of guiding principles which form the foundation on which members interact, conduct themselves and fulfill their goals. At BNI, we’re Changing the Way the World does Business®.

01

Givers Gain®

Givers Gain is the underlying philosophy of BNI. We exemplify that by giving business to others; you will get business in return.

02

Lifelong Learning

We believe in the continuous improvement of personal and professional skills. BNI provides a variety of opportunities to support lifelong learning.

03

Traditions + Innovation

Tradition in an organization tells us where we come from and lays the foundation of who we are, but we must always be looking for ways to innovate.

04

Positive Attitude

BNI provides an environment that enables you to surround yourself with people who want to help you succeed.

05

Building Relationships

Networking is more about farming connections with new contacts than hunting for them. People want to do business with people they know and trust. It’s about cultivating those relationships.

06

Accountability

If you want to have a powerful personal network, you must have accountability. Otherwise, it becomes a social group.

07

Recognition

It’s important to recognize those who are contributing.
