In recent years, the economy of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq has been impacted by the global drop in oil prices, the conflict against the Islamic State and a dispute with the central government in Baghdad, intensified by the independence referendum held in September. The region also hosts nearly a million displaced individuals from Syria and across Iraq. Drawing upon her work at Five One Labs which she co-founded, Patricia Letayf will discuss how entrepreneurship can help address not only challenges of displacement, but also contribute to the development of the KRI's region's economy.
