Empowering Rural Entrepreneurs 

Group-2

In May 2016, 1Bridge started the 1Bridge Associate (1BA) Program, recruiting local youth in villages to be our last mile champions and hero’s of progress. We started off with a few associates in one district and today, we have hundreds of ambitious and tenacious 1Bridge Associates (1BAs) across many districts in Karnataka! 1Bridge empowers the 1BAs by not only giving them the opportunity to earn, but also grow as an entrepreneur too, in turn contributing to the progress of his/her own community.

Our 1BAs have gained significant monetary returns and also earned social prestige in their community. For many men and women, 1Bridge has become the expression of their entrepreneurial drive.

Testimonials

Through this program, we envision an inclusive network of skilled and successful local entrepreneurs and an independent local market in each tier 3/4 town and surrounding villages. Gradually, as more jobs are created in every town/village, the youth will not need to migrate to the city for a career but can be a part of the home economy.
