Locally known as "Hawler" and also spelt "Arbil", the city of Erbil is the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan located in the heart of the region and north of Iraq. With a whopping population of ethnically diverse 850,000 people (think Kurds, Armenians, Assyrians, Arabs, Iraqi Turkmens, Yezidis, Shabakis and Mandaeans), it's just as much a mish mash from a religious point of view, Sunni Islam, Shia Islam, Christianity, Yezidism, Yarsanism, Shabakism and Mandaeism creating a colorful melting pot of cultures. Its history dates back to about the 5th millennium BC making it one of the oldest continuously inhabited areas in the world. Coworking appearing in Erbil is a sign of an impressive increase in Internet penetration.

The government has acknowledged that it will be the private sector and entrepreneurs that will change the economy and drive job creation from its historical reliance on the oil sector.
