Our 20+ have been receiving training sessions since the beginning of June as part of Orange Corners Baghdad third cohort.
The goal of Orange Corners incubation sessions is to support Iraqi youth in bringing their
entrepreneurial ideas to life by providing intensive training sessions especially picked to answer the current iraqi startups needs.
The sessions cover important topics like:
Business Model Canvas
Marketing and Digital Marketing
Sales for Entrepreneures
After the completion of the sessions, each startup then takes mentoring sessions with specialized mentors. The mentoring sessions are 1 on 1 training sessions with each startup as they receive training by the mentor that would serve them in the area of most difficulty they’re facing in their business plan.
Another essential part of our programs at Orange Corners is The Masterclasses. A space where startups can speak freely and have open discussions with Masterclass professionals. It's an opportunity to widen the scope of vision for the incubatees by providing masterclasses that handle important topics the startups will most likely face in their journey. An example of this is a session themed “Am I on the right track?” This session deliberated about the start-up journey including formation, validation as well as growth.
Orange Corners Baghdad is able to continue its programs by the support of our partners, The Kingdom of the Netherlands Embassy and Asiacell as well as KAPITA.
