Iraq’s Teami Raises First Investment Round

Teami has concluded its first investment round through the Iraqi Angel Investors Network. The company raised a five-figure round from a group of Iraqi investors including; Mohammed Al-Hakim, the General Manager of Careem in Iraq and Jordan; Iraq Tech Ventures; Ahmed Baqir and KAPITA. In addition, Teami secured $20,000 in grants from the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH via its project “ICT for Youth in Iraq” as part of the organisation’s support to the Angel Network.

Teami provides CRM solutions to medical agents in Iraq to help them manage their on-field operations. The company is distinguished by its ability to use innovative technology to address the needs of the Iraqi market and already has over 400 users.

“The large tech opportunity remains for B2C businesses in Iraq but Teami is proof that there are many problems to address and markets to create on the corporate side as well’’.

Analysis

KAPITA’s Iraqi Angel Investors Network is slowly increasing the number of investments in Iraqi startups. With two already secured this year, we expect to see many more in 2021. For years, Iraqi startups have struggled to access funding. This change in momentum will not only contribute to the economy, but encourage other founders to improve their businesses and ensure that they meet the necessary requirements to apply for funding.
