[Upcoming] See you in Iran!
19 April 2018, Silk Road Startup, Kish Island, Iran
Yes, we are going to Iran!
(not an April Fools Day joke)
Iran may not be the most accessible country in the world, but that does not mean that they are short of innovations and talented software programmers!
Annabelle will be a speaker at the Silk Road Summit, and do let us know if you will be joining in.
Did you know - Kish Island has a free trade zone status, and its the third most-visited vacation destination in Southwest Asia, after Dubai and Sharm el-Sheikh? (according to Wikipedia, the most credible source of information)
“Silk Road Startup is the first international B2B, invite-only, gathering in Iran to showcase the local startup ecosystem to international communities. We bring together the best startups, investors, corporations, accelerators, incubators and Tech media.
We ran a call for entry for startups from all over the country and 400 startup applied to our challenge. We then shortlisted the top 84 startups who pitched during our road trip in 7 cities of the country. After these series of pitch competitions, 16 finalists were accepted to participate at the finals in Kish.
The Summit in Kish is a mix of pitch competitions, keynotes, panels and workshops in 2 days. We also hold many 1:1 sessions of matchmaking and VIP dinners to optimise the experience of the attendees.”
