Welcome onboard Noah’s Ark.
Funding is Iraqi entrepreneur’s worst problem. All local banks, as well as all government schemes come with either impossible conditions, or ridiculously high interest rates, or both.
As Noah’s Ark work as a giant incubator, using the latest in business analysis methodologies and business innovation best practices, we hope this alone will reduce your risks. Additionally, we uniquely offer crowdsourcing, whereby large numbers of professionals, experts, academics, scientists, and business owners, act as a large advisory council to the entrepreneur. This too increases chances of successful outcomes. The combination of these 2 functions is not offered by any other entrepreneurship resource in the Arab world.
To start with, please register on Noah’s Ark, using “Investor” profile type. Please fill in the information required by the registration form and include some information about your investment history and type of projects you prefer to be involved with such as by industry or technology or even by geography (within Iraq). Noah’s Ark works on the principle of no agency between investor and entrepreneur. Hence just by creating an “investor” account will help entrepreneurs to find you, and approach you directly with their projects. Conversely you can use the search tools to find the right projects that match your policies and preferences. Then you too can talk directly with the entrepreneur either publicly or in private.
Moreover, we hope in the future to form a legal group on board Noah’s Ark to help with supplying legal texts for funding agreements as well as providing services for authenticating any contracts or memoranda between investors and entrepreneurs. Please continue to follow Noah’s Ark for updates and new services for investors.
Finally, it is our intention to establish a fund based on Crowd Funding principles in the future. Such fund will play an integrating role rather than competing with investors.
