Iran is one of the countries that have experienced brain drain in the past decades. On the other hand, the remarkable entrepreneurial achievements of Iranian in other countries especially in Silicon Valley indicate their talents in entrepreneurship. Right now with the growth in entrepreneurial ecosystem of Iran and seeing more success stories, we are hoping that these talents can rise in our own country. But it is not completely achievable without the proper connections and networking with global successful experiences due to the sanctions.
iBRIDGE Berlin as a big networking event is a sequel to iBRIDGE Berkeley, the innovative conference held at the University of California, Berkeley on September 6, 2014. The sold-out groundbreaking event, with over 500 attendees brought together thought leaders and seasoned entrepreneurs from Iran like the founders of System Group companies, Afranet, Fanap, Café bazar and Takhfifan to explore the opportunities and challenges of tech entrepreneurship in Iran and its impact on the country’s ongoing economic development.
iBRIDGE Berlin is a three-day event to be held on June 4-6, 2015 in Berlin, Germany that is organized by iBRIDGES. It will bring together European and American entrepreneurs and their counterparts in Iran to explore the role that a high-tech entrepreneurial ecosystem can play in Iran’s economic development and diversification. The event will be comprised of keynote speeches, panel discussions, and workshops, as well as visits to local incubators in Berlin.
At the heart of iBRIDGES lies the commitment to actively contribute to developing and growing the high-tech entrepreneurial ecosystem in Iran. This objective is based on the notion that the promotion and development of entrepreneurial capacities for members of society is a key lever to elevate their social condition. Entrepreneurship opens minds and enables individuals to unleash their creative capacities. It enables them to shift their perspective from seeing themselves as mere consumers or passive members of society, to being active producers, contributors and creators of their social reality.
Avatech as one of the commercial sponsors of this conference is going to send its 11 startups to iBridge conference to show case them and introduce them. It is a very good opportunity for them to get promoted and engage in the very high-tech entrepreneurial space.
