The name,Farshad Rouhani, means … The holy source of happiness. What can I say?
My first business was a fresh pasta factory, which won me the “Young entrepreneur of the year” award in 1988. in the UK.
I sold The pasta Factory which had developed in to a group of businesses in 1998.
Moved to Iran, got married and set up the “Iran Venture Capital Exchange” for the government. I took back the rights for the exchange as I was not happy with the way they were handling it, I am the director of the bourse to this day.
The Exchange aims to match investors to their ideal projects for investment & the other way round. It is free to use for all who register as investors and project holders seeking partners or capital. This exchange, the first in Iran and even outside Iran is a unique business model designed for the needs of the investment community and industry in Iran. As all connections are without any intermediary it is corruption proof and more importantly fast. It connects the potential investor to the chosen project from any where from the globe with a few clicks.
The income of the exchange is from its sponsors who support entrepreneurship and the investment industry.Companies and government are welcome to contact us to become sponsors are receive our VIP services and access to our contacts & projects
I believe this endeavor will change the way Iran approaches venture capital and will have a profound effect in creating a vibrant new development in all sectors of the economy.
The only thing necessary for the triumph of chaos, corruption and poverty is for good men and women of ability to do nothing,
You must register in order to contact the projects or place a project.
