We visited Iraq on June 7, 2021, with Alice Bosley and Patricia Letayf. They are the leaders of Five One Labs, a startup incubator in Iraq, located in Kurdistan.

We feel really lucky to have found out about Five One — that never would have happened without the innovation and change author Greg Satell who introduced us to these amazing leaders.
