‘Knowl­edge-based firms pro­vide 80% of cap­i­tal for pri­vate sec­tor in­dus­tries’

Tehran Times - - TECHNOLOGY -

TEHRAN — About 80 per­cent of the cap­i­tal orig­i­nated from the pri­vate sec­tor in­dus­tries in Iran are pro­duced by knowl­edge-based com­pa­nies, the deputy in­dus­try min­is­ter for re­search and tech­nol­ogy an­nounced on Fri­day, Mehr re­ported.

Barat Ghoba­dian made the re­marks dur­ing his visit to the 6th Rab’e Rashidi In­no­va­tion and Tech­nol­ogy Ex­hi­bi­tion (Rino­tex 2018), which is cur­rently un­der­way at the Iran north­west­ern city of Tabriz.

About 20 per­cent of knowl­edge-based com­pa­nies in the coun­try are ac­tive in the in­dus­try sec­tor, he added.

The min­istry sup­ports the knowl­edge-based com­pa­nies with pro­vid­ing le­gal and fi­nan­cial in­fra­struc­tures, he noted.

“We try our best to move to­ward the knowl­edge-based econ­omy at the min­istry,” he added.

The Rino­tex 2018, which runs un­til Novem­ber 5, of­fers 136 tech­no­log­i­cal needs met by star­tups and knowl­edge-based com­pa­nies.

Tech­no­log­i­cal ideas, tech­nol­ogy devel­op­ment and com­mer­cial­iza­tion, sell­ing knowl­edge-based prod­ucts and ser­vices and meet­ing the tech­no­log­i­cal needs are the main themes of the event.
