“Listen more, talk less, and always ASK.”
– Yazdan Navabi
Graduating with a bachelor’s degree in entrepreneurship, Yazdan Navabi has had many opportunities outside of Georgia State University to learn new skillsets. He has had an apprenticeship with Mercedes-Benz USA, an internship with Microsoft Redmond Campus and Panthers in the Valley. Also, he has many talents including fluency in English, French, Farsi, and Spanish.
While in school, Navabi took ENI 3101 course – Entrepreneurial Thinking for Startups where he launched a business called ‘Food Upcycles.’
Yazdan explains, “Food Upcycles enables everyone to turn their waste into compost (soil) cost-effectively. We transform your food from trash into pure healthy soil – ready to grow future yields of food. After processing, Food Upcycles supplies the compost for farmers and urban growers. Using Food Upcycles ™ to repurpose your food waste, helps you save money, reduce pollution, and combat global warming.”
After graduating, he plans to continue to play a part in saving our planet and saving ourselves.
When asked about his favorite memories about the entrepreneurship program, Navabi replied that, “the community and inspiration I received from the institute” was the best part.
Congratulations again to Navabi for all that you have accomplished at Georgia State and beyond!
