• How To Build £1m+ Pipeline of Investors in 90 Days

    You've been wanting to do more property development projects per annum or acquire more businesses. It can be frustrating when you're losing deals due to the lack of funds. Cash in the bank is necessary and I've helped 150+ Property Developers in the past 12 months.


    The Private Equity Academy was launched to give you insights, secrets and 1-1 weekly mentoring to help you get it right the first time round by raising capital with £1m+ pipeline in just 90 days.

  • My Link to Property Developments

    I came for my quarterly review meeting with the developer client and he shook my hand and said thank you. He said because of you I've been able to raise investments and get a number of sites live in a matter of months. Why don't you join me as my commercial/investor relations director and I can help you earn a lot more?


    So I shook his hand and the following week I got to work. Over the next year I followed him around, he became a friend and business partner, learning everything about property developing and the challenges without actually getting my hands dirty.


    After raising over £2m and helping him grow his portfolio to £20m+ in London & Essex I realised very quickly that this skill of raising money doesn't come easy to most. I launched Shakur Investments and leveraged my network to help other developers raise money.

    My Journey

    Over the last 10 years of being in business selling to FTSE100 companies & working with property developer/service providers to grow, I've been able to stay on top, learn new skills and pick up secrets of HNWI (high net-worth investors). I've been featured in the BBC, spoke at 100+ events & Listed on the Top 100 Most Powerful Young Entrepreneurs In The World.

    Falling Into RE & Launching London Property Community

    How I fell into property was quite accidental, I was a freelance commercial director which specialises in Real Estate and for the first time we took on a client who was a property developer.


    In order to raise the bar, we launched London Property Community which started in hotel lobbies and grew to partnering with Natwest and accumulating 10,000+ members. All either investors, landlords or developers.

    The Private Equity Academy

    The reason I set up the Private Equity Academy is to help property developers scale and actually go from their full-time job to doing 10-12 per annum whilst having the cash in the bank to do so.


    Everything I do takes minimal hours in the week so it's perfect for the busy developers or even professionals looking to leverage other people's money.

    Director - Varsity Finance

    From the moment I met with Abdul, I could appreciate not only his eloquence but his sheer ora to capture the attention of those around him.


    His ongoing professionalism and ability to adapt within any industry clearly means that both Abdul and his firm can work towards growing an audience to suit most firms, but with a particular lean towards the Property Market.


    It was therefore only a matter of time before my husband and I asked that he joins us and engages with our firm Varsity Finance, with the view to creating an impact across all social platforms and expand our clientele.


    So if you are looking to increase your audience and grow your business whilst still retaining that personal touch, then talk to Abdul and his team.
