Facilitators


Mujtaba Al-Tamimi

"One for all and all for one" is Mujtaba's Motto. He dropped out of college to cofound Zenzic, a crowdsourcing platform for educational illustrations. He is also the co-founder of Fikra Space - Baghdad's first Hackerspace and the co-organizer of Startup Weekend Baghdad. His favorite hacks are programming Android apps after midnight and using Arduino to automate the world. His dream is to see students go to school wearing shorts and sandals. When he's not busy plotting the best plan to fix the education system in Iraq, you can find him playing Frisbee or inline skating with his little brother who he loves more than anything in this world.
