Nowadays, innovation is more important than ever in determining the fate of a business. Maybe it has not been too long since the late Peter Drucker said that “business is nothing but innovation and marketing”, but business design and development experts, both pioneering and emerging, have tied innovation to the success or failure of businesses in such a short period of time. Today, business innovation has moved beyond the traditional areas of packaging and supplying methods and it is intertwined with documentation & designing business models; Innovation today is a business’s everything. Porteghal Accelerator was founded around this very idea and based on understanding the needs of Iranian entrepreneurs and taking into account the current hasty approach in adopting and implementing innovative models and tools and commercialization of innovative technologies.
In 2016, Fasl Institute signed an exclusive representation contract with Germany’s OrangeHills™ and two more agreements were signed by two eminent entities, Atrin Sanat Co. (as the main actor in financing and international investment) and Iran Web Design (as the main provider of solutions in information and communication technology). This set of two-and-three-way partnerships created the basis for establishing a new and independent legal entity. In 2018, after successful development of businesses such as Asam Arts & Trade Co. (Rash Iran), Atin Biopolymer Company and the implementation of several other design and development consultancy projects, Porteghal Accelerator was formally established. Porteghal Accelerator is dedicated to developing scientific and practical solutions for implementing innovation in a world-class manner. So that active entrepreneurs and owners of prominent business ideas can receive unparalleled and distinguished services in innovation management, technology management, and entrepreneurship.
