Road Trip kerman shiraz mashhad tabriz tehran

road trip 2018

It's all about the journey when it comes to connecting with ambitious talents and passionate hearts who have big dreams. Nothing can replace a human interaction. That's why we organise a road trip to meet amazing entrepreneurs from every corner of the country, feel their world and understand where they come from. We organise a series of startup pitch competitions during 10 days. Last year we crossed 4000km in 7 cities. Our goal is to map the Iranian tech ecosystem.

Our Second Silk Road road trip started in Kerman and was intense and fun! We had a total of 5 pitches that presented each of their Startup ideas. Now here's an amazing fact: Bam, a city in Kerman Province of southeastern Iran, benefited from a strategic location on the spice route connecting the region to the Silk Road. In the end, Paziresh 24 entered our 100 days online acceleration program, Silk Road 100.
