Five One Labs is a start-up incubator that helps locals and displaced entrepreneurs launch and grow their businesses in Iraqi Kurdistan. Launching first in Erbil, we aim to empower individuals to build lives and livelihoods and to contribute to the economic growth of their communities. (Please note: You can be from anywhere in order to apply, but you must be able to attend the program in Erbil, Iraq).
Five One Labs entrepreneurs are provided with training; mentorship by entrepreneurs from the USA and the Middle East; and a community of fellow entrepreneurs to share their experiences with. Our vision is to develop an inclusive network of innovators that have the support, skills, and connections to positively change their communities and countries.
The Five One Labs incubator will run from October 22 - February 1 in Erbil and will provide participants with extensive training on how to launch their start-ups, legal support, networking opportunities, coworking space, and much more.
If you are participating as a team, each member should submit a separate application. Each team member should have their own answers for the "Information about You" section, but the answers for "Information about Your Startup Idea" can be the same for each team member.
