Pardis Technology Park (PTP), affiliated to Presidential Officeˈs Department of Science and Technology, will host 100 Startup Weekends in Tehran in the next three years. In each Startup Weekend, 100 university students and startup enthusiasts will participate.
Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event, which will be attended by developers, designers, marketers, product managers and startup enthusiasts who come together to share ideas, form teams, build products and launch startups.
All activities follow the same basic model: Anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers.
Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it's a 54-hour business model creation, coding, designing and market validating.
The weekend culminates with presentations by local entrepreneurial leaders with an opportunity for critical feedback.
