I hope that being isolated in a small community, my experience of watching Muslim businesses open, struggle, close, and repeat is not the national norm in the US. I have witnessed this phenomenon among internet businesses as well; frequently following dead links to “new” businesses. Allhualim how much of the problem stems from poor business planning and how much has to do with lack of support from Muslims to Muslims.
The Ebony Experiment is an exciting venture and I look forward to seeing the results. I also hope for a ripple effect.
