Tehran Municipality has offered to help startups affected by the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus in Iran.
TM’s Information and Communication Technologies Organization announced on Wednesday that Tehran Mayor Pirouz Hanachi has called on urban managers to help startups and fledgling tech firms affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. 
As part of the measures, the firms are to be allowed to use residential buildings as workplaces. The municipality also plans to roll out more incentives for the firms in the near future, Mehr News Agency reported.
Noting that TM is authorized to define the functional purpose of buildings and issue permits based on Article 55 of Municipal Law, Hanachi said tech units can settle in residential buildings provided their activities do not cause inconvenience to neighbors.
