 Role of Business Accelerators

In recent years, technology penetration has grown exponentially in Iran. Several services like third and fourth generation mobile Internet services have been launched and the numbers using online services for their day to day needs has grown significantly.

In order to cater to the needs of the growing market, several business accelerators have been launched both by private sector and the government.

Easy Paz is backed by one of the largest startup accelerators in Iran, Avatech, which provides entrepreneurs with mentorship, entrepreneurial training, seed funding and workspaces.

Seed funding, sometimes known as seed money or seed capital, is a form of securities offering in which an investor invests in exchange for an equity stake in a company.

Businesses that take part in Avatech’s acceleration program after presenting their business plan and approval from the Avatech panel of referees, initially receive 250 million rials ($6,670). In addition to this amount, the new teams can also apply for a loan of up to 1 billion rials ($25,000). Instead of repaying the loan in cash, the accelerator may own larger shares of the companies’ equity.
