Asal has been involved in a few startups over the past few years mainly in Europe. One of her ideas where she worked on back in 2013 was presented to Wayra Accelator. The presented venture, hop up, was a last minute flight booking app which allowed you to get the best possible deal last minute.
She has had experience in developing the venture from scratch to the fundraising stage.
I believe her latest idea, instalist.me, the Craig’s list for Instagram, if combined with the Buy button can have a potential in Iran given the engagement rates for social networks especially Instagram in the country. Similar concepts have already worked in Europe and in the fashion world.
Asal is a trustworthy individual and has lived in the US and Europe for more than 20 years and recently returned to Iran with a passion to start the venture.
I believe Avatech can potentially help her through different stages of developing the idea into a business case and that is the reason behind my recommendation
