Tehran is the capital of Iran, and Iran’s most cosmopolitan city. The metropolis area is home to some 15 million people — 2nd largest in the Middle East and 29th in the world. This dynamic metropolis showcases the best of modern Iran, as well as what to expect in Iran’s future. While the city isn’t yet an established startup hub, initiatives such as coworking spaces and incubators are quickly finding their place in Tehran.
Iran’s most secular and dynamic city is rapidly developing into one of the region’s top tech hubs. While Iran has recently faced sanctions from the US, this has only had the unintended effect of increasing local innovation. Because locals have needed to become increasingly self-sufficient, we’ve recently seen a large increase in Iranian startups. While foreign investment in Iran is risky, investors face little competition and have the potential for an enormous payoff later on. The Iranian market shows great potential as internet access and smartphone ownership continue to skyrocket across the population.
Living conditions are continuing to improve in Tehran as well. Tehran is home to the Milad Tower, one of the top 10 tallest self-supporting towers in the world. Shopping in one of Tehran’s 60 modern shopping malls is a great way to relax on the weekends after a long week of work. While the city’s climate is very hot, the high temperatures are made more bearable due to relatively low levels of humidity.
When you’d like to clear your head, a hike through the walking trails in the mountains or a stroll through one of the cities 800 parks comes highly recommended. Once you’re ready to work again, take advantage of Tehran’s dozens of colleges and universities by hiring cheap young talent. You’d be surprised how inexpensively skilled local developers are willing to work. While coworking from Tehran may not yet be mainstream, the local market has great future potential.
