How 20+ Muslim Entrepreneurs Built Their Startups
The American Muslim Consumer Consortium (AMCC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to developing the American Muslim consumer market.
The platform empowers Muslim entrepreneurs and startups by creating community and distributing Muslim consumer-related news, white papers, research, and case studies.
Since launching in 2010, AMCC has received applications from more than 200 startups from which 20 companies were selected to present their business plan to a panel of entrepreneurs and investors.
According to its website, “This has become the most popular session in our conference and has been compared to ABC’s Shark Tank.”
This year, AMCC asked 20+ successful Muslim entrepreneurs to answer the following four questions:
- What accomplishment are you most proud of?
- What’s the one thing you did right that resulted in the biggest positive impact to your business?
- What’s the one thing you wish you had done differently?
- What’s the one piece of advice you would give to fellow entrepreneurs?
Some of these entrepreneurs include Chris Blauvelt, CEO of LaunchGood, which won a 2014 prize of $10,000 from AMCC; Amin Aaser, managing director for Noor Kids; Drakshan Khan, founder of Purple Impression; Kelvin Ali, president of Northern World Entertainment Software; Mohammed Faris, CEO of The Productive Muslim Company.
