We dream of inspiring 20,000 women entrepreneurs by 2020 who have the potential, ambition and opportunity to build their business and contribute to socio-economic community development.
We believe in any woman’s power to fulfill their dreams and the dreams of the community at large.
We capacitate women in their entrepreneurial ventures.
Development needs to be carried out from within through nurturing of the ‘leader’ inside every person. It cannot be handed out as a charity and has to be kindled in the heart and head of a person. Entrepreneurs can be empowered to achieve the dreams they have for their businesses and communities, to become a critical mass of change agents in the society
A woman entrepreneur has already taken the first step towards capacitating herself by starting her business. We support this by building a foundation of personal growth and business skills which she can use to take her business to the next level.
There are three building blocks to the training
In developing countries high-quality education for young, promising entrepreneurs is not attainable both monetarily and distance-wise. Also, local (business) issues are harder to understand and tackle from outside a community, than from within.
Personal Growth – to develop their confidence, communication skills and self-reflection
Women, especially working women, face significant challenges as compared to a man when it comes to investment on themselves to take their business forward. They have to cater to the needs of the family as well as their business, both physically and monetarily. This fundamental problem of taking time out of their lives is addressed through the BUZZ, which provides training at their disposal when it is convenient for them.
Opportunities and New Connections – to connect with successful entrepreneurs like for guidance and mentorship
With women being the epicenter of families, every woman we reach out to, her family is developed as well! BUZZ is a platform to empower rural potential and an opportunity of employment and exchange of expertise.
Entrepreneurial skills – to give insights into their business, finance and marketing techniques
BUZZ is a mobile academy consisting of a customised, full-equipped mini-bus with two trainers. Making education mobile and localized, it will make it accessible and meaningful for community development.

Better Future is a fast-growing and ambitious company with a focus on social and economical profit. Founded in 2003 we now work in more than twenty countries in Europe, Africa, Asia and South America and started its operations in India in January 2010. We provide our services to major companies in profit and not-for-profit The Better Future team consists of passionate professionals with extensive experience in major organisations. We all put our heart and soul into our work; making a difference in society. Quality, integrity and innovation is our signature. A long term dream for Better Future has been to reach the bottom of the pyramid leaders and entrepreneurs through training. We got an opportunity for this through a programme for GSRD Foundation (set up by G-Star) to train the entrepreneurs that they work with. Better Future India designed and facilitated the first Buzz programme (under the name Kadam Pe Kadam or Step-by-step) for GSRD Foundation. Given the success of the programme (for testimonials see www.joinbuzz.org) and with a world of experience in the leadership training domain, Better Future embarks on the journey of creating leadershiptraining specifically for rural women entrepreneurs through a not-for-profit organization registered as Buzz India Trust. We are targeting 20,000 women entrepreneurs by 2020 that have the potential, ambition and opportunity to build their business and contribute to socio-economic community development. Currently, we are targeting the rural women entrepreneurs who are the recipients of the micro-credit facility from Grameen Koota (a prominent Micro Finance Institution in South India).
to become a Buzz fellow founder Buzz is about creating life changing opportunities for fellow entrepreneurs. For every woman entrepreneur you raise above the poverty line, you change the destiny of her family for good. Development of business skills, self confidence and network opportunities are crucial for existing small-scale entrepreneurs to get to the next level of doing business (where they start creating jobs). Buzz is a mobile and online academy which offers tailor made, powerful solutions for personal and business growth to local entrepreneurs in their own environment. With our micro-finance partner Grameen Koota we target a client base of 450.000 (mostly female) entrepreneurs. Buzz will train over 100 local community business coaches who guide & coach the entrepreneurs on a weekly base. Buzz is about sustainable entrepreneurship, not about charity. The entrepreneurs themselves will pay for courses and part of the interest paid on bigger loans (when entrepreneurs expand their business) are reinvested in Buzz. Buzz is 100% about the true spirit of entrepreneurship. Buzz is innovative, market driven, scalable and fully self sustainable in 3 years.
