One of the arguments for the Iran nuclear deal was that it would encourage greater openness and investment from the West.Rouhani's government had blessed a planned visit to Iran last June by 20 members of the Young Global Leaders, arranged through Sorena Sattari, Iran's vice president for science and technology.Namazi graduated from Tufts University and then studied management at London Business School and urban planning at Rutgers.The message from the hard-liners, whose IRGC-linked businesses have prospered since the revolution, is that they won't give up economic or political power to the old elite, as sanctions are lifted and foreign investment grows in Iran.Just as the IRGC evidently hopes, the Namazi case has chilled some Iranian-American business leaders who had considered investing in Iran. IBridges has been attacked in the Iranian press, and some of its members – who were enthusiastic just a few months ago about funding new startups in Iran – are said to be reconsidering.
