Our Journey

How it started

The Founders

Our love for technology and Iraq made us start Iraqi Innovators. Whilst traditional forms of aid focus on conventional sectors and trainings, we believe that technology can accelerate a country’s growth and provide fair opportunities for all.

Since 2018

The Stories

Iraqi Innovators began as a simple blog once we realised that Iraqi entrepreneurship stories were going undocumented. 

The goal was to show the world the amazing work of Iraqi startups and tech, and tackle predominant narratives of Iraq as just a “war torn” country.

Our content includes resources for startups and professionals, alongside sharing successes of Iraqi startups and women in tech.
