BNI offers its members opportunities to network, share contacts; besides giving and gaining business referrals
BNI (Business Network International), known to be the world’s leading business networking and referral organisation, has also achieved tremendous strides in India – becoming India’s largest and most successful business networking organisations, as well. With core objectives of offering the best business opportunities, contact sharing and business referrals, BNI Goa strives to enable its members to thrive in the business scenario by building relationships and creating a well thought-out and compassionate system of giving and receiving business referrals.
BNI Goa was launched in April 2010 by Rajkumar Kamat, Founder and Managing Director of EP Kamat Group. Though Rajkumar may have sown the seeds of BNI in Goa and has been overseeing its overall progress in the State, BNI Goa has been nurtured and grown by many of its passionate BNI stalwarts, who have enthusiastically volunteered their valuable time, experience and efforts to bring it to the level that it has reached today.
EMBRACING PERSONAL GROWTH
Parag Loliyekar embarked on his professional journey as a software developer in Bangalore, the thriving IT hub of India. However, his deep affection for Goa eventually drew him back to his hometown. Unfortunately, the IT sector in Goa had limited prospects at the time, prompting him to take a bold leap into the printing and packaging industry. As a first-generation entrepreneur, he takes immense pride in owning two successful printing and packaging businesses: Sai Art and Paragraphics. Over the past two decades, his unwavering passion and dedication has been instrumental in the growth and prosperity of these ventures. With the exceptional support of his team, they have emerged as one of the leading printing and packaging firms in Goa.
Joining BNI proved to be a transformative milestone in his entrepreneurial journey. Presently, a significant majority of his business originates from BNI, which has also served as a platform for nurturing his leadership abilities. During his 12-year tenure in BNI, he has had the privilege of assuming various leadership roles, continuously refining his skills, and making meaningful contributions to the organisation’s development
