Mehrad Abdolrazagh is managing director of SnappFood, Iran’s leading food delivery platform. Mehrad was one of Snappfood´s first employees and is now responsible for the company’s business administration and marketing strategy. He has a degree in Software Engineering and an MBA from Tehran’s prestigious Sharif University of Technology.
Before joining SnappFood, Mehrad worked as a software developer and CTO. Tech startups are for him the best match for someone with an interest in both IT and business. He is always looking for something that has not been done by others, either because it seems impossible or it hasn't occurred to anyone. Right now, this translates into making selling kebabs and burgers for restaurants more efficiently. Working to advance real-world scalable applications, he aims to have a real impact on Iranians’ lives.
SnappFood (formely known as ZoodFood) is the leading online food ordering company in Iran. As the first business of its kind in the market, SnappFood managed to sign up more than 1,300 restaurants. The company currently operates in various cities in Iran, including Mashhad, Shiraz, Isfahan, Tabriz and Tehran. SnappFood had year-on-year growth of more than 500% in 2015 and is one of Iran’s fastest growing startups. The company was acquired by Iran Internet Group in 2015, a joint venture of Rocket Internet and Iranian telecoms company MTN.
