BNI Italia Franchise


BNI was established in 1985 and began franchising in 1996. Since its launch in November 2003, the BNI Italy franchise has established itself in many cities and has shown year-on-year growth in subscriptions.

The BNI Business model has had 38 years of consecutive Membership growth and has supported Member business growth through some of the most challenging business environments.


The World’s Largest Referral Networking Organization

BNI® is a business for people who love business. As the world’s leading referral organization, franchise owners provide their members the opportunity to increase business through a structured, positive and professional network that enables them to develop long-term, meaningful relationships with results-driven professionals, dedicated to helping each other generate more sales.

A Business That Changes Lives

BNI® has grown to support over 304,624 members worldwide, with chapters in over 77 countries across the globe. BNI has grown because it solves a fundamental challenge all professionals face: ‘What is the best way for me to generate more business and sales?’ In 2021 alone, BNI Members shared over 13.01 million valuable new client referrals and generated over $20.06B (USD) in revenue.

Our franchisees, who are called Executive Directors in BNI, are entrepreneurs who have decided to support local companies and professionals in their growth, thanks to the launches of Chapters ready to welcome the most diverse professional specializations. Becoming an Executive Director therefore represents an opportunity to change the local economy for the better, promote the corporate sustainability of other professionals and entrepreneurs and develop a successful business for yourself too, both economically and in terms of connections relevant to the local business fabric.

“Business people are always looking to increase sales and BNI® helps them achieve that in a unique, fun way,” says Graham Weihmiller, CEO of BNI®, “Everyone speaks the language of referrals and BNI® is uniquely positioned to build bridges in a world that needs bridges more than ever.”

BNI Italia is a member of Assofranchising, the association that defends and supports the interests of the associated networks, promoting the development of quality franchising in Italy.
In 2019 BNI Italia was ranked second in the Italian Franchising Awards for the Technological Innovation category.
