TechHub has officially launched, making the first tech startup coworking space in Iraq a reality. We have housed nine members so far, as well as numerous expert-led entrepreneurial workshops and events, and look forward to bringing much more to Iraq’s booming tech startup sector.
Coworking office spaces have seen exponential growth around the world in recent years, as the business environment has undergone big changes. And the reason is simple: there are just so many benefits to joining a coworking space when building your tech startup.
What is TechHub?
TechHub is a community hub for tech startups in Iraq, headquartered in the city of Erbil, Iraq. We created TechHub to give budding Iraqi techstars the springboard they need to build, grow and scale their startup in a fully supportive tech environment.
We are on a mission to grow and engender a tech entrepreneurial spirit and provide the platform to help early-stage tech entrepreneurs with the necessary means for sustainable growth. A cutting-edge tech startup coworking space is what Iraq needs to help its burgeoning tech sector to grow further and to grow strong. This is why we built TechHub.
8 Reasons to Join TechHub and Power Your Tech Startup’s Growth
1. Gain access to cutting-edge facilities
Our Erbil HQ was originally used by MSELECT and Bite.Tech and some other startups. It soon became clear that it was the perfect space to establish a coworking community hub for budding Iraqi tech entrepreneurs. The office is large, bright and fully equipped to meet modern business needs.
Our coworking space offers you use of meeting rooms, training halls, a canteen and shared communal areas. You can also count on top of the range equipment, offering you fibre optic internet access, printing facilities and more.
Some companies operating out of the TechHub coworking space include several startups, MSELECT, Bite.Tech, and TechHub itself. We are also home to the humanitarian organisations, Re:coded and 51Labs, who use the TechHub space for their teams, as well as to host workshops and training sessions.

Attend frequent, exclusive workshops and soak up the knowledge and business acumen of tech industry experts.
