This isn't Zamani's first success. The tech visionary started his business at the age of 15, before even putting a thought into MihanPezeshk. Growing up in north of Tehran and then moved to London at the age of 14, the self-taught computer programmer started his first business designing and hosting websites for companies while he was in school.

Startups, Struggles and Economic Sanctions

Zamani’s was mostly successful in the startups that he made in Iran. Zamani believes Iran is the last untapped internet opportunities in the world which obviously is the reason he was always focused in the Iranian market but due to U.S. economic sanctions many companies are struggling. The value of Iranian currency is constantly changing and it affects the businesses all around the country and it’s impossible to make a long-term business plan.

In 2007 Zamani was named “Top 20 under 20 Entrepreneurs” by Elmerooz magazine.
