For the first time in Iran, a series of startup pitch competitions will be held in 8 cities of the country in 10 days. The 10 best startups from these cities will be selected to pitch during the finals in Kish Island in front of the local and international jury. Registration for startups is now open.
It all started in the spring of 2014 in Tehran. A bunch of kids who studied in one of the best high schools in Iran, just took Konkoor exam (a standardized test widely used for college admissions in Iran) and instead of playing around or just studying their courses, they wanted to start a project and do something real not just studying.
