About this event

By 1999 Shaf Rasul was already a self-made multi-millionaire with an extensive investment portfolio that would allow him to take it easy for the rest of his life. Maybe the time had come for the one of Scotland’s most successful entrepreneurs to slow down and set-up a comfortable lifestyle business that would allow him to pursue other interests like business mentoring and philanthropy. It was at that time Rasul established E-Net Computers which he grew spectacularly. At its peak sales reached £67.2m.

Rasul has also developed a venture capital investment portfolio which focuses on property, asset management and internet technology and is an Online Dragon on BBC's famous Dragons Den programme.

Rasul has won numerous awards including Ernst and Young Scottish Young Entrepreneur of the Year and was ranked 19th in a Management Today 2008 survey of the UK’s top 100 entrepreneurs. He has also been included in the Asian 100, a list of the most successful members of the British Asian community.
