Salaam Events Co. in association with Salaam Ventures is proud to host a unique one day event on the 12th October 2017 at the Holiday Inn, Commercial Road (London) for investors and entrepreneurs to discover the Halal Economy forming in the UK and beyond.
The Muslim consumer evolution is being driven by young Muslims asserting their values, and requiring companies to provide products and services that meet their faith-based needs. The State of the Global Islamic Economy Report 2016/17 published by Thomson Reuters estimates that the Islamic Economy was alone worth $1.9 trillion in 2015 and growing.
The event will bring you the latest developments and trends whilst also highlighting specific opportunities for you to engage within key commercial sectors; Food, Fashion, Finance, Lifestyle, Hospitality & Tourism and will will also showcase five disruptive Muslim Entrepreneurs and their companies; HalalEat, Islamic GPS, Halal Dining Club, Haute Elan and Muzmatch recently identified by Forbes as “Five Muslim Start-Ups With A Big Future In The UK and Beyond” and currently seeking investments for growth.
Confirmed speakers include Abdalhamid Evans (Imarat consultants), Prof. Jonathan Wilson (gsm London & Hult International Business School), Jes Bailey (Crowd funding specialist) and Imran Kausar (Haloodies, Co-Founder & CEO). Collectively the speakers and consultant bring with them a wealth of knowledge in the Islamic economy and their individual expertise range from market analysis, strategy, brand marketing and alternative finance. These prominent keynote speakers regularly feature in prestigious Islamic economy conference and often consult for both institutions and governments alike.
The man behind the Salaam Co & Ventures initiative is Abul Rob (one of the mentioned Forbes 5) who is organising the event after it became apparent on the lack of knowledge on the “Halal” economy amongst everyday investors whilst equity crowdfunding recently for his startup HalalEat. Rob said “Together with the other Forbes 5, we are proud to be at the forefront of an emerging niche economy expected to be valued $1.9 Trillion by 2020. This event is an opportunity to discover probably the best kept secret in investment in an untapped emerging economy driven by the Millennial Muslims consumers appetite for all things Halal.
After the guests speeches and the panel discussion with the Forbes 5 startups, drinks and food will be provided. Investors in attendance will have the opportunity to network and learn more from the startups founders and the experts at hand.
