Iranian startups, entrepreneurs helping restore business in flood-hit provinces

Financial Tribune – Iranian startups, with help from tech enthusiasts and entrepreneurs, have launched a campaign to help restore businesses in provinces affected by severe flooding in March and April.

The move, backed by the organizers of Iran Web and Mobile Festival, is described as social responsibility campaign by IWMF co-founder, Shayan Shalileh.

The 12th round of the festival will be held in February 2020.

In late March and during Norouz (the current year’s Iranian New Year holiday from March 21 to April 2), devastating floods struck the northern and western parts of the country, leaving behind a huge pile of ruined houses, farmlands, schools and urban infrastructure. A large number of people also lost their homes and businesses.
