iBRIDGE Berlin is a three-day event to be held on June 4-6, 2015 in Berlin, Germany that is organized by iBRIDGES. It will bring together European and American entrepreneurs and their counterparts in Iran to explore the role that a high-tech entrepreneurial ecosystem can play in Iran’s economic development and diversification. The event will be comprised of keynote speeches, panel discussions, and workshops, as well as visits to local incubators in Berlin.
iBRIDGE Berlin is a sequel to iBRIDGE Berkeley, the innovative conference held at the University of California, Berkeley on September 6, 2014. The sold-out groundbreaking event, with over 700 attendees and 1,000 viewers via live stream, brought together thought leaders and seasoned entrepreneurs from Silicon Valley and Iran to explore the opportunities and challenges of high tech entrepreneurship in Iran and its impact on the country’s ongoing economic development.
The iBRIDGES initiative is an open, inclusive and collaborative community, free from any political or ideological affiliations, that works towards bringing to life a diversity of impactful initiatives, platforms and spaces that all tangibly serve to contribute to the development of the high-tech entrepreneurial sector in Iran. The iBRIDGES community is committed to nurturing and empowering individuals to become agents of change who build and accelerate the growth of the “Innovation Economy” in Iran.
At the heart of iBRIDGES lies the commitment to actively contribute to developing and growing the high-tech entrepreneurial ecosystem in Iran. This objective is based on the notion that the promotion and development of entrepreneurial capacities for members of society is a key lever to elevate their social condition. Entrepreneurship opens minds and enables individuals to unleash their creative capacities. It enables them to shift their perspective from seeing themselves as mere consumers or passive members of society, to being active producers, contributors and creators of their social reality. In particular the high-tech entrepreneurial space brings with it game changing dynamics and new ways of engagement that promote diversity and equal opportunity, celebrates merit based achievement, advocates participative management as well as fosters shared ownership, all elements needed to establish a “Global Innovation Economy”.
This paradigm shift is the indispensable key to establishing a sustainable economy and is the engine of innovation which safeguards the continual advancement of civilization towards shared prosperity.
