Our Journey from Students to Business Founders: The Story of Duhok Tech and Z Tech

In 2018, Osamah and I embarked on an exciting journey while still in the third stage of our university studies. Our shared interest in technology led us to work on various projects together, which sowed the seeds for what would become a significant endeavor. With a clear vision and a mutual passion, we decided to take our first step into the business world by establishing a small office, Duhok Tech.

The Birth of Duhok Tech

With limited resources, we pooled our savings to rent a modest space in the city center. Our office was minimalistic, furnished with just two tables and two laptops. Despite the humble beginnings, our ambition was clear: “Small Business, Big Ambitions.” We started by developing apps and working on projects for our friends, which quickly gained us a reputation for quality and reliability.

Our early projects not only solidified our partnership but also set the foundation for our growth. With each project, we honed our skills, expanded our network, and nurtured our business acumen.

Expansion and the Birth of Z Tech

By 2022, our aspirations had outgrown our small office. We had successfully completed numerous projects, and our client base had expanded significantly. This growth necessitated a rebranding and formal registration of our business. Given that “Duhok Tech” was already in use, we decided to establish a new entity: Z Tech.

Z Tech was not just a name change; it represented a new chapter and broader ambitions. This time, we invited our talented friend Niwar to join us. Niwar brought exceptional skills in design and photography, adding a creative dimension to our team.

The Vision and the Future

With Z Tech officially registered, we set our sights on new horizons. Our goals became more defined, and our commitment to quality and innovation strengthened. We continued to uphold our slogan, “Small Business, Big Ambitions,” as it perfectly encapsulates our journey and our future aspirations.

Today, Z Tech stands as a testament to our perseverance, growth, and vision. From a small office with basic equipment, we have evolved into a dynamic company with clear goals and a commitment to excellence. We continue to strive for success, driven by the same passion and ambition that ignited our journey.

Reflections and Learnings

Our story is a reminder that great things often have humble beginnings. Through hard work, persistence, and the willingness to embrace change, we transformed our small project into a thriving business. We learned that the key to success lies not just in the skills we possess but also in our ability to adapt, collaborate, and continually aspire for greater heights.

As we look to the future, we are excited about the possibilities and challenges that lie ahead. We remain committed to our vision and to making a meaningful impact in the tech industry. Our journey is far from over, and we look forward to the continued growth and success of Z Tech.
