JUDGING PANEL

To ensure full independency of the decision-making process, Iraqpreneurs has assembled Judging Panels of professionals and business leaders from different sectors and commercial backgrounds. Winning at Iraqpreneurs means that you are truly the best of the best. We do not get involved in the decisions on who the winners are - the final decision on winners lies with the judges, their experience and very objective and publicly known scoring criteria.
