Leonard and his team started a Whatsapp group to gather building industry people to learn and grow together back in April 2016. It is a casual setup with no fees and they have monthly gatherings just to network and know more about each others businesses. By just doing that, it has grown from 0 to over 100 members in just one year! And the figure for total Done Deals within the group is a whopping RM1.3 Million and counting!
From there, discussions on moving forward with the group started in early 2017 and the formation of BIA started in mid august on the same year. The first shareholders meeting was held at a coffee shop in a shopping mall soon after that, and the official launch of BIA was finally held in September 2017. And, as they say, the rest is history!
