IRIS organized a workshop on “Developing the Capabilities for Internationalization”
Isfahan Regional Center for Technology Incubator and Science Park Development (IRIS), organized a Training workshop with the title of “Developing the Capabilities for Internationalization” in collaboration with Reddal Consultancy Group. The workshop which was an initial result of the negotiations between IRIS and Finland’s Reddal, was held in Isfahan Science and Technology Town from the 10th to the 11th of July, 2016. This workshop was conducted with the participation of members from the settled companies within ISTT, and mentors from Reddal and Vision Consulting Groups. The workshop followed several objectives including the means to provide hands on experience in the assessment of the present positioning of participating companies in regards to international markets, and in the development of internationalization strategies for start-ups and SME’s, and also to provide guidance on how to manage and decide matters concerning the penetration of international markets. With this objective, the workshop participants were divided in to several work groups with individual projects. The participants applied the concepts and processes that were explained by the mentors to their own projects and in doing so gained valuable knowhow and experience for the internationalization of their companies and products.
The participants expressed great satisfaction with the course, mentors and program organizers and asked for follow up courses, and further mentorship and consultancy with the Reddal group. IRIS hopes to organize this workshop for other parks and incubators within the country and region, and assist in the expansion of SME’s to international markets with the provision of knowledge and guidance on subjects concerning internationalization.
Isfahan Regional Center for Technology Incubators and Science Park Development was established in Isfahan in May 2010 according to an agreement between Islamic Republic of Iran and UNESCO. Isfahan Science and Technology Town (ISTT) is the host for this regional center.
