With the help of the Secretariat of D-8 Technology Transfer and Exchange Network ( TTEN), the international meeting of the venture capital funds focused on D-8 countries (D-8 VC's Meeting) will be held on December 3-5, 2017 in Tehran, Iran.

Akbar Ghanbarpour added: "The meeting will be held with the aim of sharing experiences and increasing the recognition of VC funds, and also cooperation and synergy between them, at the same time with the second round of the Great Prophet's Science and Technology Award."

He also added: "various sections have been planned for the event, such as panels on the funds’ current issues, providing working models of the funds, the presentation of several stories of cooperation between start-ups and VC funds, presentations of several start-ups from member countries to the investors, contributing for creating an organization for VC funds, holding training workshops, etc.”

Ghanbarpour stated: "We should not think that the increase in the number of VC funds in our country means that our situation is appropriate in the Middle East and in the world. We do not have a good status in global ranking and need more effort, participation and experience of the today’s world. For example, among the 8 developing countries that formed the D-8 group, Iran’s rank in access to VC funds is 6th.”

Deputy of D-8 TTEN’s secretary expressed his hope that an appropriate opportunity would be provided for the country’s innovation ecosystem to grow and deepen existing knowledge, by the significant participation of foreign VC funds in the event.

At the end, he said: "The applicants of participation at the meeting can fill out the form and register at this website”:

It is worth mentioning that the Technology Transfer and Exchange Network was established in 2013 among the D-8 Islamic member countries and its secretariat is located at Iran National Techmarket Center. Synergy between the countries’ investors for the development of communications, the expansion of the market for the sale of technological products and the transfer of technical knowledge, the strengthening of investment and increasing cooperation among the countries are the aims of the establishment of this network.
