ISTANBUL - Yaman Vuran is the owner of Lavie Cafe, a lively bistro in Istanbul's trendy Tesvikiye Nisantasi neighborhood - resembling, in many respects, New York's SOHO district. Having attended college in Florida and started businesses in Miami as well as Istanbul, Yaman has a unique perspective on the challenges facing entrepreneurs in both countries, as well as on some of the things that we can learn from each other.

In addition to being an accomplished entrepreneur, Yaman is also a gifted photographer. We have included a few pictures of his cafe, staff and his beloved Princes Island.
