Iranian SME Chamber
Dr. Seyed Mohammad Ali Moayedi
Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) have significant contributions in transforming the economy into a competitive, dynamic, sustainable and knowledge-based environment and are responsible for driving innovation and competition forces in various economic sectors. In Iran, an important part of the economy in the field of industry and services are owned by SMEs; so that 70% of job opportunities and up to 50% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) depend on such companies.
Using this potential, we are able to provide total and unique support to SMEs, entrepreneurs, and start-ups in order to convert business ideas and new concepts into profitable business ventures as well as consulting and strengthening family companies for better development.
Our main mission is to networking, integration, supporting and accelerating start-ups from the stage of an idea to growth and maturity with our novel business model to create new market opportunities and solve their problems and empower them. The main goal of the Iranian SME Chamber is to support and provide a platform for the production of business leads, referrals, investment infrastructure, promotion, marketing and product branding, distribution and export channels, and connecting to business partners as an accelerator.
Accordingly, we are very excited about what we have planned for the future. Our focus is always on our members’ network and the way we can provide necessary facilities for their business with the cooperation and help of our partners to create a double added value for them by using our Sub-Brands:
As the Iran Chapter of the London Institute of Skills Development (LISD) and the capabilities that are created for us through a strategic partnership with this institution, we provide scientific up-to-date services at the highest international level in the field of short-term and long-term training including specialized, general and managerial topics in order to empower and develop knowledge-based SMEs. We hope that all these efforts will lead to promoting financial indicators, innovation, sustainability, and development of SMEs in Iran.
