JoopeA in iBridges 2016

We can name iBridges one of the most successful conferences that connects Iranians to high tech organizations in the world. It has started small, but as today, it has participants from more than 40 countries which more than one fifth of them comes from Iran. Regarding to official statistics, 200 entrepreneurs and more are participating to attract 50 funders from LA to get supporting for their projects.

This year iBridges has been held in Barcelona, Spain from seven to ten December.
