Iran’s Vice Presidential Office for Science and Technology has inaugurated several technology projects in the western province of Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari to buttress the local startup ecosystem.
During a Tuesday visit to the province, Vice President Sorena Sattari launched three startup accelerators in Boroujen and Lordegan counties, as well as Shahrekord University of Medical Sciences in the province's namesake city via videoconference, IRNA reported. 
With the latest induction, the number of accelerators in the province has increased to six, according to Esmaeil Pirali, chairman of the local science and technology park.
During the event, 4.3 hectares were also ceded to the tech park's area, bringing the total to 5 hectares with 6,000 square meters of workshop space.
“In 2015, the park area was only 5,200 square meters,” the official added.
