Could you be one of the NIBF’s Startups Contest winners?
Why we do that
Sweden Iran Chamber of Trade & Commerce as the organisers of this Summit and Expo May 2018, strongly believe that startups are going to have an essential impact on communities’ economic, social, scientific and cultural growth and in many cases they will change the way of living radically in many senses. For that reason, also as a part of organiser’ social responsibility, NIBF will endorse individuals or groups who seriously are taking an active role as Startups with a statement of purpose, clear aim, direction and action plan. In alignment with this intention, a part of the revenue generated at NIBF events will be donated in form of special grants to 10 startup entities from Iran or Nordic countries.
