Chris Abdur Rahman Blauvelt is the founder and CEO of Launchgood, the world's largest faith-inspired crowdfunding platform. They have helped raise more than $37 million across 104 countries for inspiring people doing great work in Muslim communities.
At the age of 16, Chris accepted Islam after becoming inspired in part through the autobiography of Malcolm X.
He has had a varied background from working for Intel, teaching at a boarding school, producing an award-winning Sundance film and now CEO of Launchgood.
Chris shares his story about discovering Islam at a young age, the conflicts that he faced with his new religion, especially in the 9/11 era, and how Chris is committed to reviving the goodness of humanity by helping others do good. Chris also shares his views on the future of the Islamic economy and why he thinks that it is still in its infancy with a huge growth potential.
Chris has an amazing story and we are honoured to share it. We are inspired by, how at such a young age, he had the maturity to make a big decision to convert and remain steadfast. His motto in life is truly selfless and he is determined to leave a legacy.
