The idea of using behavioral economics in iran market and businesses was formed when we saw Dan Ariely’s TED on 2013 .
After reading 2014 Behavioral Economic’s guide and related resources, we started to Implement our ideas about Behavioral Economics in businesses. After receiving great feedbacks and watch increasing the amount of sell and benefit in businesses, we decide to create a consulting and behavioral economics group for the first time in our contry, Iran.
In the first step, we present BE for 21 businesses in big cities as Tehran and Mashhad. We want to know about their needs and that was a great experience for us.
Our biggest idea was consulting businesses and until now, we dedicated more than half of our time to this section. But beside that, we done some activities in academic environment and educational fields.
We done some researchs on our culture difference and other countries to find out “Does behavioral economics has good impact on our culture and behavioral ?” We believe that behavioral economics is a science which you can improve your personal and economics decision making process by learning it. In this manner for increasing people’s information in this field, we write about behavioral economics in our behavioral economis school. Further more we build a professional educating center for sales manager and business managers that they can learn BE in higher level. At last We start writing for some of our journals and new papers. Behave group are execute organizational and Corporative projects by using “behavioral economics”, “Entrepreneurship”,”cognitive science”,”neuromarketing” sciences.
