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.
Iraqi Innovators began as a simple blog once the founders 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.
We’re passionate about writing, obviously. So from 2019-2020, we organised online Creative Writing Clubs which were attended by Iraqis from all over the country, and collaborated with clubs in Sierra Leone.
In 2021, we launched Iraq’s first Digital Copywriting Program with 15 budding writers looking to start a career as a copywriter/content creator.
