Silk Road Startup
Silk Road Startup is the first International startup event in Iran to showcase the Iranian startup scene and create a bridge between Iran and International communities.
We bring together a curated audience of the best startups, investors, corporations, accelerators, incubators and Tech media.
"A trip of +4000KM through Iran"
In Oct 2017, we went on a 10 day road trip in 7 different cities of Iran to meet the best local startups from every corner of the country. We chose the to meet 84 startups from 400 applications and with the help of an international jury we selected the top 16 startups. These finalists will be competing at the finals in Kish during the Summit.
The Summit happening on April 18&19 in Kish Island in the South of Iran, is a 2 day "invite-only" event, and a mix of pitch competitions, keynotes, panels and workshops.
