Istanbul is a big modern city with a great history. The growing economy of Turkey and the ease of global commerce and business lead us to plan moving our base here months ago. Now we are happy to announce that this new journey has begun and henceforth Zigzaglab will continue its activities from this lovely and beautiful city.
We have many plans for the upcoming months: most importantly our team is going to expand and attract new talents. Zigzaglab will still focus on providing different services for the Iranians, but with fewer limitations and more possibilities. Being in Istanbul also gives us the opportunity to connect to other start-ups and teams in Turkey, share what we know and enter new markets.
Nowruz (Persian New Year) is finished and we resume our activities in new ways. This week Zigzaglab will open "Jobs" section to announce the job openings, hoping to find the right talented professionals for the team's current and future projects. With these improvements and changes, we are and will be dedicated to deliver better services in Iran as well as Turkey.

Ladybug from IRAN is among 64 youth projects that have been shortlisted for the World Summit Youth Award. Provided that they pass the next round, a trip to the digital event of the year awaits them.
Tehran/Salzburg, August 21, 2013
Ladybug from IRAN met the high demands of the online jury and enters the next round of the World Summit Youth Award (WSYA) 2013 in the category Power 2 Women. This global contest is dedicated to young developers who employ digital technologies to turn the United Nations Millennium Development Goals into action. Now Ladybug competes against 63 websites, apps and other innovative youth projects. If it withstands critical inspection by a jury of internationally renowned ICT-experts, an invitation to Colombo, Sri Lanka, awaits the producer.
Ladybug is a campaign that aspires to produce a generation of women in Iran who are enthusiastic about and active in different technological fields. Through its defined goals about women, this campaign seeks to encourage them to enter into the world of technology and train them in the required fields. The Ladybug campaign has for management a young team whose members are all under 30 and living in Iran.
If the project succeeds, its creator will win a trip to Colombo for the WSYA Winners' Event 2013, October 24-26. This price offers more than just an opportunity to explore the biggest city of the tropical island with its aquamarine waters and pristine shores. At one of the globally most important events for young ICT-developers, the next generation of IT-pioneers will have the chance to present their project in front of a high-level audience, including business leaders from the multimedia sector and creative industry, representatives of politics and NGOs and many more.
The six categories of the World Summit Youth Award:
Fight Poverty, Hunger and Disease!
Education for All!
Power 2 Women!
Create your Culture!
Ladybug is nominated in Power 2 Women.

Ladybug (Kafshdoozak in Persian) is a new project launched by our team. As a campaign, Ladybug seeks to empower Persian speaking women in the technology sector. We pursue multiple objectives thorough this project such as campaigning by presenting the activities of women in the technology to the interested public, providing online education, holding workshops, professional advice giving free of charge, and allocating financial aid to projects run by women.
At the moment, Ladybug is in the campaigning phase. The detailed information on the strategies and plans as well as the perspective of the project will be updated shortly in the Ladybug blog (in Persian). We hope that by the help of the volunteers we could empower and advance women.

We were always trying to provide our services in a better and more professional way to Iranians. Now we are really happy because hereafter all we do will be introduced in name of -ZigZagLab- .We boast that our small team could introduce various tools to our users. Now they can enjoy the experience of using great and appealing services.
Unfortunately, cause of improper news about Iran many people all over the world believe that there are not many guys working on web and mobile issues here or an appropriate output could not be found among the works they have done. We in ZigZagLab, love to show others that different projects establish in our lovely country which need more attention.
