Venture Capital

The financing of business activities with non-cooperative mechanisms is generally possible in the form of an exchange contract. The types of facilities in the form of Islamic contracts include installment sales, leasing, pledge rentals, guaranteed purchases and more.
The conditions of the facilities provided by the members of the association are generally determined by interacting with the knowledge-based company and meeting its needs to best meet the financial need of these companies. In addition, funds often provide facilities to a variety of applicants from a variety of backgrounds, and given that their sources are locally located outside the funds themselves, they have preferential interest rates as well as easier collateral than the banking system. Also, these funds often have a good understanding of facility applicants in their geographical area and can do better research than facility creditors.

Lending

Venture capital is a type of private equity, a form of financing that is provided by firms or funds to small, early-stage, emerging firms that are deemed to have high growth potential, or which have demonstrated high growth. Venture capitalists commonly:

  • Financing growing and newly established companies.
  • Purchase Company Shares (Financing through Assets)
  • Help develop new products or services.
  • With active participation in the company they create value.
  • By expecting higher profits, they take more risks.
  • Tend to be long-term.

In fact, VC is the financial intermediary between the main investor institutions (venture capital funds, pension funds, banks, insurance institutions, etc.) and the fast-growing innovation-driven companies. Generally, the main investor institutions act as a Limited Partner, and the VC plays the role of General Partner and is responsible for the activities carried out through LP funds.

Non-Governmental Funds for Research and Technology
These funds were created with the aim of investing in science-based projects and companies. The subject of these funds’ activity is as follows:

  • Providing financial and facilitation services to individuals and legal entities in the form of subsidies, short and long term facilities, paying all or part of the benefits of accrued facilities and offenses, and providing warranty services for the implementation of research, technology, innovation projects and commercialization of research results.
  • Attracting or directing government funds, authorized banks and credit institutions, and other funds in line with the fund's goals, duties, and responsibilities.
  • Venture capital (VC) in research and technology projects.
  • Participate and invest in the creation, development, leadership and empowerment of research and technology and knowledge-based companies.
  • Ensure the payment of commitments and installments of research and technology projects in the contract to expedite and facilitate the execution of plans and contracts and to encourage and facilitate property and assets to prevent project disruption.
  • Collaborate with foreign and domestic institutions and affiliate with relevant professional associations for the purposes of the Fund.
  • Providing business evaluation and feasibility services, supervision, project evaluation and research and technology projects.
  • Contribute to the formulation of policies and priorities and regulations related to the fund's objectives in the country and assist in organizing and integrating existing support in the country.

Acceleration & Technology Development

Achieving success in the development and commercialization of technology and the development of advanced technology-based businesses and industries is not only dependent on funding. In particular, funding at the wrong time can make a business fail. Many knowledge-based projects have failed despite funding for a variety of reasons, including a lack of attention to the right business model, legal issues, the market, and so on. Based on this, the members of the association offer a variety of consulting and management services to knowledge-based companies, utilizing a large network of experts in various fields including financial analysis of investment plans, financing consulting, market research, market development strategy, technical evaluation, and service such as management, financial and accounting, legal and technology provision.   In addition, some companies specializing in technology development services are also members of the Venture Capital Association.
In addition to these specialized centers, technology acceleration centers are also set up to fund start-ups and provide a variety of leadership and training services. Accelerators are usually private companies that provide startups with intellectual, technical and financial support from the start. These centers accept and support working teams based on their own internal rules and regulations and drive them to success. Since 2009, a number of technology accelerator centers in Iran have been active, some of which have become members of the country's Venture Capital Association.

Issuance of warranty

A warranty is a contract or document whereby the issuer (guarantor) undertakes to pay the beneficiary, without any reservation, immediately or at a specified maturity, a certain amount of cash in respect of the warranty subject to the applicant. One of the problems of knowledge based companies is obtaining a guarantee due to the inadequacy and lack of credit, as well as the insufficient familiarity of banks with technological activities. In this regard, one of the missions of the members of the Association is issuing all kinds of guarantees for knowledge based companies:
1 The warranty participates in the Tender
State and public organizations and bodies in bids and tender request participants to submit a guarantee along with proposals in order to prevent the bidder from canceling the contract.
2 A good performance guarantee

3 Prepayment Guarantee

4 Credit Guarantee
