The three parties also reached another agreement to “employ technologies of storing and processing data with high performance” that will allow BMI to enjoy better data processing power.

Bank Melli Iran will provide further technical support, apart from coming up with the financial resources. After evaluating firms and their products, the lender will employ them in the center and prepare the grounds for their success.
Sharif University will provide the infrastructure and regularly draft performance reports, in addition to holding entrepreneurial events and conferences to support and develop young minds and their innovations in financial technology.
