Our Journey

How it started

The Founders

Our love for technology and Iraq made us launch Iraqi Innovators. We believe that technology can accelerate a country’s growth and provide fair opportunities for all, but in order to do this, we must first challenge crippling narratives and reclaim our stories.

Since 2018

The Stories

Iraqi Innovators began as a simple blog once we realised that Iraqi entrepreneurship stories were going undocumented and mainstream media was too busy reporting on other things. 

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, investment news, women in tech, and more.
