The contribution of British Muslims to the UK is immense. Muslims have been part of the British fabric since the 19th century and have been contributing significantly in a variety of fields. British Muslims contribute over £31 billion to the UK economy and wield a spending power of £20.5 billion. There are over 10,000 British Muslim millionaires with liquid assets of £3.6 billion and at least 15 British Muslims have been listed in the Sunday Times Rich List.
The Influential 100 aims to celebrate the work of successful British Muslims who contribute to the prosperity of Britain and have become an integral part of British life, leading from the front. The Influential 100’s aim is to:
Publish a list of 100 influential Muslims, recognising professional, entrepreneurship and community excellence.
Establish an Influential 100 Mentorship programme to help a new generation of British Muslims break the glass ceiling and build a culture of excellence.
Hold an annual Influential 100 Gala Award Dinner that weaves together the inspirational journeys of people who are committed to excellence, service and charity and above all identifying and supporting the development of talent.
