What we do
Business & Shariah Development
Umar Munshi is a social entrepreneur from Singapore. An entrepreneur since the age of 18, he spent half his business years in Indonesia, a short stint in Saudi Arabia and is now based in Kuala Lumpur.
He founded EthisCrowd.com, the world’s first Real Estate Islamic Crowdfunding Platform. His experience and market leadership of this very new niche evolved and grew rapidly. Umar saw the unprecedented opportunity and was inspired to set up Ethis Ventures, to build more niche crowdfunding platforms with passionate and like-minded partners and collaborators.
Yousuf Sultan is a Bangladeshi born with diverse experience in Shari’ah and Tech consultancy, home and abroad. He holds MSc in Islamic Finance degree from INCEIF, Malaysia. Currently, he’s a PhD candidate at the same institution. He worked with ISRA consultancy on the commentary of BNM Shari’ah Standards.
He overlooked various international IT projects for many satisfied clients. They required strict deadlines, fluent communication and thorough research about the purpose and audience of the projects. It has led him to excel in his project management skill apart from building a long-term relationship with the clients. Currently, he is using this experience in his role as Shari’ah-Tech Consultant at Ethis Ventures.
Previously he worked as Deputy Mufti in Jamia Shariyyah Malibag, a prominent Darul Uloom in Dhaka, Bangladesh. He lectured on Shari’ah perspectives of Islamic Finance and provided training on AAOIFI shari’ah standards. He has been a part-time teacher at Islamic University of Technology (IUT) Dhaka, a subsidiary organ of OIC. Apart from the teaching profession, he frequently appeared as a speaker for live and recorded religious programs on various TV channels in Bangladesh.
Joann Enriquez has a Bachelors of Arts in International Studies and Bachelors of Science in Business Management from De La Salle University. She has a Masters in Business Administration and pending Doctorate in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix, USA and has recently completed her Master’s in Islamic Finance Practice from the International Centre for Islamic Finance, Malaysia.
Joann has worked and consulted for various prominent financial and technology companies in
the Silicon Valley while based in San Francisco, California most of her adult life. While in California, she was an active contributor to the CAIR, Council on American Islamic Relations and
was very active in Interfaith programs focusing on Children and Motherhood.
She hopes to leave legacies that will live beyond her; and eventually give back to her roots in the
Philippines especially to the marginalised Filipina Muslim who have yet to be heard and represented in trade and commerce and in policy formulation of the Nation.
