Baghdad: The Ecosystem

In terms of legal entities there are only two types: the for profit and the non-profit.  There is no such thing as registering as a social enterprise in Iraq. Most of the initiatives undertaken by Baghdadi youth are either for profit enterprises, which are small businesses and do not have a social cause included in their business model. On the other hand there are many community projects without any additional funding source.
