BTS is already connected to 4500+ entrepreneurs and 150+ business community heads from all over, and it will be what is the first community-based business visibility platform, both online (web) and physical, for business networking, gaining referral business leads, and knowledge transfer. BTS Business Community has a wide pan-India presence though it has its roots in Tamilnadu.

BTS Business Community, started by Shameer.S, an IT Project Consultant by profession, and Gayathri Rajesh, founder of SearchnScore, is South India’s leading organization for generating referral leads and creating business networking opportunities through web/PR/social media platforms & physical/online events for visibility, business training & informal education (knowledge sharing) sessions.

We, therefore, help you develop a life-long relationship with our community members and the wider business & startup ecosystem.
