Touker Suleyman: Net Worth
Touker is one of the richest Dragons to ever preside in the Den. In fact, he’s only behind three: Duncan Bannatyne, Peter Jones, and Theo Paphitis.
In short, he’s a pretty rich guy.
According to Spears’ Magazine, Touker’s net worth is currently estimated to be at £150 million.
How Did Touker Suleyman Get Rich?
He found a lottery ticket worth £150 million on the street.
Nah. We’re kidding.
Touker acquired a small cash and carry business in 1984, which eventually turned into Low Profile Group – a company that supplied clothing to shops such as Marks and Sparks.
Then, in 2001, Touker pulled off a pretty amazing deal. According to London Loves Business, Touker and Low Profile Group acquired luxury menswear brand Hawes & Curtis for a measly £1. Not bad, eh?
Touker added to his empire again in 2008 by snapping up U.K fashion label Ghost. From then, he’s just got richer and richer.
Touker Suleyman Businesses
The Telegraph described Touker as a “one-man incubator for U.K start-ups” after he signed deals with luxury handbags start-up Hurley & Cox and Bikesoup.
Those two businesses join a roster that already includes several multimillion-pound making companies. Hawes & Curtis, for one, has skyrocketed since Touker took over: from a turnover of £600,00 in 2001 to £30million in 2004.
All of this makes Touker an ideal Dragon.
In fact, in his first season in the den, Touker struck deals with four entrepreneurs, including a £100,00 deal that gave him a 50% equity stake in the waterproof coating for a clothing business.
