Developing and increasing technology-oriented and high tech products export is one of the most important goals of Iran long term strategies. Exporting technology-oriented goods & services is the culmination of scientific & technological activities which may lead to sustainable employment, great surplus value, national power and wealth for the country. In this paper, technology- oriented export companies of Pardis technology Park which are under supervision of presidential science and technology deputy have been studied. In this regard, by using exploratory mixed method, Facilitator factors affecting technology-oriented goods has been recognized by qualitative research through directional qualitative content analysis method in five categories (Chamber of Commerce, presidential science and technology deputy, government in macro level, international partners and cooperative level). At the next step these factors have been analyzed using interpretive structural modeling and Dematel method which are soft modeling approaches. Factors of casual relationships and also their interpretive structural graded model were extracted and factors relating to the government clusters are recognized as the most important Enablers for developing technology-oriented goods.
