Rebellion of Ideas,
Daring of Execution,
Innovation of Reform.
Every journey has its hidden story. I faced a plethora of these challenges to become what I am today. Let’s find this challenges out!
From Beginning to University
I was born in July 1998. The fascinating period of childhood to adolescence was full of excitement, and the discovery of new worlds, and my parents were so supportive that neither competition nor personal challenges could bother me. I was trying to get to my best position and learn individual skills.
From the beginning, education was crucial to my parents. I was trying to get to the best position possible. From the beginning of high school, I studied hard and learned many lessons about work-life balance, which I’m trying to apply in my life. Reading about new and various fields was one of my outstanding habits of that period that gave me a new spirit.
Starting as an applied science student was not a reason for me to become a doctor because of social circumstances and family interests. My family and friends guidance led me to some questions that could be answered in the economics major. Unlike many students who were not attracted to this field, I was so determined to study economics at Shahid Beheshti University that even some challenges in the university entrance exam couldn’t keep me in Ferdowsi University of Mashhad. January 2019 was the beginning of my study at Shahid Beheshti University.
My first project was in high school. I’ve started participating in Startup Weekends as a graphic designer and I was designed our high school’s website. Experiences that entered me to teamwork and the production processes, and was the reason to expand my knowledge in web programming and CMS’s like WordPress.
After some experiences in organizational consulting in Rabin Rasan advertising company and compiling my first comprehensive report on nutrition and health titled “The Sense of Happiness,” at the end of high school, I became a board member of the Bozorgmehr Agricultural-Biotechnology Cooperative. After the university entrance exam, with the help of my knowledge in psychology, I compiled a consulting and planning book “My Konkur, ” and helped the students overcome the challenges of this exam as a “counselor of the entrance exam” for a while.
In February 2018, I began looking for research-executive positions that matched my interests. I started the summer of 2019 by going to various companies and ministries to apply for internship positions. In those internships, I was assigned some non-sense chores just to get disappointed. I attended meetings and met some challenging deadlines. The appeal of the story was that the harder it was to get the job done, the more time I put for it, and the better I tried to deliver it.
After writing several articles for FUM and SBU journals, I began my first professional project by studying the future of B2C and plastic industries for the Global Business Rejuvenation company, then I became interested in energy, and at the same time, I was conducting market research for the Iran Oil Exploration Operations Company.
I came across Farabi FinTech Accelerator. After taking a Digital Marketing course in Farabi and working with them, I seized the opportunity to experience the executive field and experience organizational work.
I spent a few months organizing events, producing online contents, and coordinating some internal activities by joining the operational team. In the meantime, I thought about personal branding, and with the advice of my friends at advertising agencies, we came up the “tavangarx,” a name that is not only my global user I.D. but also an organized platform for disseminating my knowledge and ideas.
These executive-scientific activities provided me with the opportunity to work on the concept of the new structure for SBU’s Center for Applied-Islamic Economics for a while, in addition to hosting the freshman induction ceremony of the Faculty of Economics.
The busy summer of 2019 was spent in multiple fields such as oil and startups or cooperating in holding the SUMIX event in November and giving a speech in Creative Mornings event.
In late autumn, at the same time that I was the CFO for Biblofil startup, I got obsessed with accelerating my career path and continued my career in business management. So I entered in the startup evaluation and investment field. As a short-term activity I became a member of the marketing team of the Exarea exhibition company, It was there that I sensed the need of retraining. So I applied for some prestigious consulting firms. I made some tough decisions that were critical for my career and made me face challenges that forced me to learn continuously. These decisions ultimately resulted in giving me a better perspective of my own needs and abilities.
In the spring of 2019, after much discussion with my friends at Sharif University of Technology, we decided that it would be better to start a company to use our scientific and executive capacities. After tens of hours of discussion, we designed an organization, and we registered “Riva Growth Solution “in September of that year.
In additionm, by the summer, I took a fascinating internship course in the summer of 2019 at ILIA Corporation. This time my summer began with hosting TEDx Tehran and continued with full-time research and market research at ILIA Corporation, where I experienced great teamwork that audited “the Procure” petroleum equipment retailer company, and after a startups brand audit project, designed and implemented the “10 A.M. Podcast” advertising campaign.
After finishing my work at ILIA, with the support of national elites, in Riva we have sought to provide the right, accurate, and innovative solutions to businesses’ interdisciplinary challenges. Being the CEO of this company gave the honor of being one of the youngest members of the Iran Management Association, which provided me a suitable platform for sharing ideas and experiences.
During my my time at SBU, I participated in several activities such as class representative at the Faculty of Economics. An opportunity that, in collaboration with professors and students, gave me a new experience of management.
After creating the organizational structures of Riva and implementing several projects such as Sakha (comprehensive white paper of the I.R.I automotive industry), Newsha (design and implementation of Riva’s site and social media accounts), Basir (Riva’s excellency internship program), and RWG (comprehensive training on white paper writing), I found myself in the need of retraining and specializing more advanced research. Thus, I deepened my knowledge by taking the various courses such as Basics of Entrepreneurship and Basics of Blockchain at the Sharif University of Technology and the online courses such as Blockchain and Gamification.
The Path of Tomorrow
In retrospect, I realized that I’ve had many opportunities that I have sacrificed to reach to this point. I had to resist opportunities that could have some big benefits and experience boosts in the short term, but prevented me from learning and making a better future.
Now, after learning skills such as management, leadership, lecturing, and communication, along with Riva’s leadership, Bozorgmehr’s development and studying economics, I have focused on infrastructure studies and looking for strategies that improves organization’s performance and gamifying development processes, technical education, economic applications, and implementation of the Blockchain Technology. A path that, along with my other interests in the fields of energy, management consulting, social security, psychology, literature, philosophy, and investment, can be a clue to the future.
I find myself at the beginning of a path that is as yet untraveled, scary, and fascinating as it was in my childhood. I still want to run and learn, see and hear, get guidance and help, and I want to see that the world becomes a better place to live.
