The Irancubator is a virtual tech accelerator founded by United For Iran which is assembling development teams to build "apps for good" for Iranians suffering under religious and personal persecution. Today's mini createathon is a compact version of Irancubator's 18th-month process that launches in May and will provide development teams with technical, financial and logistical support for app development.
