What can I say about Reza Ghiabi. Unshakable confidence, unimaginable capability, a network of endless contacts and a pillar of the start-up community in Iran. I have been fortunate enough to have known Reza for some time and this year I finally got the opportunity to work with him and see his energy, passion, creativity and resilience first hand. There isn’t an idea he won’t explore, a door he can’t open and always, always delivers on his promises on time - and that's a rare quality.

Reza had played a big role in Iran’s startup ecosystem as an influencer, speaker, mentor, and etc. He is a warm hearted person whose main goal as I have realized is to show wana be entrepreneurs the opportunities and vice versa. That’s why everyone calls him the “opportunity maker”. He makes the most out of every opportunity and people.
