Have you ever wondered what the startup ecosystem in Iran looks like? Well, wonder no more! I recently wrote an article that provides a comprehensive map of Iran’s startup ecosystem as it stands today. The article has received a great response from readers, including university professors, scholars, government officials, and startup activists.
If you’re interested in learning more about Iran’s thriving startup scene, I highly recommend checking out the article. You’ll find a wealth of information and insights that are sure to pique your interest. Here’s the link:
I hope you find the article as fascinating as I did, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on it!
As many of you know, March was a busy month for me, especially with the approach of Nowruz and the start of the new Persian year. I had the pleasure of working on several strategic projects that kept me on my toes, and it was a rewarding experience to see them all come together. While it was a busy time, I feel grateful for the opportunity to work on these projects and contribute to their success.
In addition to my work, I also had the pleasure of curating a Nowruz music playlist as a gift for my friends and family. The playlist, called “OPP Mood by Reza Ghiabi,” features a collection of songs that I think perfectly capture the joy and energy of this special holiday. If you’re looking for some fun and upbeat tunes to get you in the Nowruz spirit, I highly recommend giving it a listen! You can find it on Apple Music here:
I hope you all enjoy the playlist as much as I enjoyed putting it together. Here’s to a happy and prosperous new year!
I recently had the pleasure of being a guest on the Excoino Livecast podcast, where I had the opportunity to discuss a wide range of topics, from my professional background to TEDxTehran to the future of decentralized finance and blockchain. It was a fascinating conversation, and I’m excited to share the link with all of you.
In the podcast, we covered a lot of ground, and I think you’ll find it both informative and thought-provoking. We touched on everything from the latest trends in blockchain technology to the challenges and opportunities facing entrepreneurs in Iran and beyond. If you’re interested in learning more about these topics, I highly recommend checking out the podcast. You can find it here:
I hope you enjoy the podcast as much as I enjoyed being a guest on it. As always, I’m eager to hear your thoughts and feedback.
In addition to my busy schedule, I’m also thrilled to share that I’ve been having a fantastic time as Head of Business Development at ERNYKA Holding. It’s been an exciting journey, and I feel grateful for the opportunity to work with such a talented team on innovative projects that are making a real impact.
Looking ahead, I’m also gearing up for the next INOTEX exhibition, where I’ll be serving as the event’s Deputy of the Stages Committee. INOTEX is one of Iran’s premier startup events, and I’m honored to be a part of it. This year, we’re planning an INOTEXStage conference that will bring together experts, scholars, and government officials to discuss the future of Iran’s startup ecosystem. It’s going to be an exciting event, and I can’t wait to share more details with you as we get closer to the date.
I feel energized by these new projects, and I’m looking forward to what the future holds. As always, thank you for your support, and I hope you’re all doing well.
