The year 2020 was a fruitful one for Iran's technology ecosystem, which earned about $1 billion in exports, according to the state-backed Iran National Innovation Fund.
“The revenue was earned by 450 well-developed tech firms,” said Marzieh Shavardi, the head of the fund's Empowerment Office. 
“With about 7,000 talented startups and 6,000 knowledge-based businesses, the export value will embark on an upward trajectory,” the fund’s website quoted her as saying.
Addressing a Sunday meeting with a commercial delegation from Bosnia-Herzegovina, Shavardi gave an overview of Iran's technological achievements and outlined INIF's commitment to financially support the growing tech ecosystem.
