Chris AR Blauvelt, Founder of LaunchGood.com, joins me this episode to talk about his background and what inspired him to create a crowd-funding website for the Muslim community. With an official launch of Oct 2013, LaunchGood has an impressive 3 million dollars pledged thus far. It goes to show that the Muslim community can come together to support Muslim entrepreneurs around the world.
LaunchGood was started as a community to revive that spirit of creativity and entrepreneurism that elevated Muslims globally for centuries. It is a place to support great ideas in the community and also challenge ourselves to think bigger. It is a network that insists the ummah is still alive in our hearts, that we are connected no matter where we are. It is our showroom to the world of all the great things Muslims are capable of.*
