About Us

Five One Labs is a startup incubator and entrepreneurship ecosystem builder headquartered in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI) that supports diverse entrepreneurs in launching scalable, innovative businesses. Since launching in Iraq in 2017, we have been at the forefront of the country’s rapidly growing entrepreneurial ecosystem and have supported displaced as well as local entrepreneurs to launch impressive, innovative startups. 

As the first startup incubator in the country, we have had the privilege of working with hundreds of talented entrepreneurs from Iraq and Syria, as well as global investors and supporters. As interest in entrepreneurship across the country grows, we are looking to reach more founders and continue providing high-quality programming and services to meet their needs. 

Five One Labs runs a coworking space in Sulaimani and a smaller innovation hub in Erbil; supports growth-stage women-led businesses through our Female Founders Fellowship; and strengthens the local investment ecosystem through our Five One Invest initiative. We’re a values-based social enterprise which problem-solving, diversity of thought and background, and empathy are at the center of all that we do.

We are an American 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with branches in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.
