About Me

Naushad Parpia’s journey, rooted in Bombay and flourishing in New York City, narrates a tale of ambition and relentless pursuit. From his childhood watching his parents carve a niche in business to his becoming a prominent entrepreneur, His life is a testament to grit and purpose.

Transitioning to the U.S. at a young age, he was inspired by the world of opportunities it presented. A graduate of the University of Virginia with a focus on Finance and Information Systems, he avidly delved into autobiographies, soaking in lessons from the visionary minds of the past.

By the age of 14, the spark of entrepreneurship ignited within him, leading to his foray into the e-commerce realm. Later in life, this fire drove him to establish two thriving companies: Plative, a tech consultancy, and Earthside Farms, a health snack brand. Under his leadership, Plative proudly secured a spot on the Inc 5000 list consecutively for five years. Yet, Parpia’s vision extends beyond accolades; he’s passionate about positively impacting the business world and the lives intertwined with it.

Away from the bustling world of business, His eclectic interests offer a glimpse into his multifaceted personality. He’s deeply captivated by longevity science and views life with a long-term lens, much like his business approach. His eclectic musical tastes, spanning from Eminem to Taylor Swift, showcase his versatility and openness.

Prioritizing well-being, he commits to intense fitness regimes that merge cardio and strength. A connoisseur of global cuisines, he enjoys the flavours of Ethiopian and Vietnamese dishes, while his predominantly plant-based diet reflects his health-consciousness and ethical considerations.

Amidst the whirlwind of responsibilities, Naushad finds serenity near water bodies. These moments, whether sailing in Puerto Rico or just being oceanside, offer him a chance to reset, reinvigorating his spirit and realigning his broader visions. In essence, His narrative is an inspiring blend of ambition, continuous learning, and embracing life’s diverse experiences.
