Finding a Halal Investment isn't easy.

Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,



Many years ago, I had saved a little money on the side and wanted to invest it into something. The problem was that I couldn’t find one Halal investment. It seemed like every company or project dealt with Interest in one way or another. So I decided to matters in my own hands, and I made my own project to invest in: a unique board game. The problem was that to produce and market this game would cost $18k but I didn’t have $18k. So I showed the game to a few friends who were in the same situation as me (had saved a little money but had no where to invest it) and they all jumped in at the opportunity. Long story short, they became my silent investors and they each made a 24% return. I was the guy with the idea/project, they were the ones with the money, and together we were able to make an idea into a reality and everyone a profit. 

Through my travels of being Baba Ali, I have been fortunate enough to meet some really talented people who have great ideas but no funding, and others who wanted to invest into something Halal but are unable to find any good opportunities. They understand that with inflation, things just get more expensive and thus, their money is worthless as time passes. So I decided to hold an event to put together a room full of talented people and ambitious people so they can expand their networks, build connections, and to connect for present or future projects. Plus, it would give the opportunity to those who have special skill sets to showcase their work.  This event can even be beneficial for anyone who knows the benefit of expanding their network.  I have learned that it's not always what you know but often time, who you know that opens doors of opportunity.  The purpose of this event is to expand who YOU know inshAllah.  

Event is on April 6th, 2013 in Orange County, CA.

Since space is limited in each category (to keep a balance) so please register today to ensure you get in. To pre-register fill out the survey:  www.bbnnetwork.org/networkingshowcase

JazakAllah Khair.

Masha'allah, Baba Ali. I think this is a WONDERFUL idea! I tried to do something similar several years ago here in Chicago for Muslim women, but we just couldn't get it off the ground for one reason or another. I then started My Halal Kitchen and am now at the point where I can really see the value in having investors and helping it make a win-win situation for everyone involved. I would love to come to your event, but since we'll be in L.A. insha'allah the following weekend for the Sameer's Eats Halal Food Tour, I won't be able to make it out. I do hope you'll share the info with us and we'll all be seeing you at the HFT, as well. Bring some of the folks in your network who are interested in investing in halal food businesses- I'm sure they'll find someone to invest in there, insha'allah.

May Allah swt make your efforts fruitful and blessed.
