It has been 3 weeks since we launched our first program and we are so lucky to host a session with amazing people including Startup Weekend Organizers from all over Iran and people from Hamfekr meetup. StartupWeekend organizers were attending their annual summit in Tehran. The event was joined by a great mixture of people interested in startups.
The Event started with welcoming the participants from cities all over Iran and inspiring speakers talking about the development of the Iranian startup scene during the last years, highlighting the importance of events such as Startup Weekends and meetups as in building a lasting Startup Ecosystem in Iran. For many people, these events are the entrance point to the startup scene and it helps them learn a lot about startups and start building their network with like-minded people. Those events are also a great opportunity to introduce ideas to other people and maybe even finding a Cofounder or team members.
After the speakers it was time for the Avatech teams to pitch their idea. Each team had one minute to explain their startup to the audience. The teams were pitching ideas covering Online Education, Project Management Software, Augmented Reality solution to decorate your house, a peer to peer lending platform and many more. During the following networking time everybody had the chance to connect to others. We hope everyone enjoyed the time and made some valuable contacts.
During the third week we had several events for our teams. Besides the regular workshop ( last week was about defining the Market Size for each of the teams startups) and our weekly pitch session where the teams practice their pitches according to latest progress, we were hosting our first member breakfast. While having a nice breakfast, teams had the chance to connect to each other, share their ideas and get feedback.
We are looking forward to an exciting week ahead. If you want to stay up to date, please sign up for our Newsletter and get all the latest information.
