Hi, I'm Yashar Nejati.
I am a 2x founder, coach, angel investor, and wishful writer.
I sold my last company. Now, I'm coaching entrepreneurs and reinvesting in startups.
I love spending time in nature, reading, ice-baths, saunas, and cycling everywhere. I'm an Iranian-Canadian and live in the Pacific Northwest. I'm a pretty good cook. (Pronounced Yāw-shār.)
My philosophy on work is that it needs to move the world towards a future I believe should exist. Work needs to be creative and challenging. Creating good work requires conviction and a long horizon.
Things I've worked on
- Uppercase — Retail real estate platform for brands to launch physical stores. Uppercase works with some of the fastest growing online brands to build and scale retail.
- Thisopenspace (exit) — Marketplace connecting creators with one-of-a-kind spaces.
