When Shervin Pishevar takes to social media to discuss his thoughts, a considerable audience usually gathers. This is due to his incredible history of success regarding investing, which has seen him partner with a number of startup companies that were poised for greatness, during a time when the general public had yet to take notice. Shervin Pishevar has played a handing in introducing companies such as Tumblr, Slack, Rapportive, Dollar Shave Club, Rap Genius, and TaskRabbit, to the world.
Recently, in what would later be deemed a tweetstorm, Shervin Pishevar took to his favorite social media platform to discuss a myriad of economically relevant affairs that he feels will change the course of America, affecting its position of power in regards to the rest of the world. During the tweetstorm, which totaled 50 tweets, that were delivered over the course of 24 hours, Mr. Pishevar discussed globalism and changes within the monetary system, as well as the economic uncertainty that has been the subject of much debate as of late.
One of the most controversial topics that Shervin Pishevar chose to discuss, concerned the position of the current American unicorn corporations, which he feels have become monopolistic in nature. Alphabet (Google), Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, and Facebook, were all named during the tweet-flurry, and according to Mr. Pishevar, despite the power that these corporations currently yield, which he feels is excessive, they are destined to fall. These entities have been placing a stranglehold on competition in America, and in spite of their prominence, which allows them to employ a number of people, it has also killed off any real semblance of competition through aggressive acquisitions. This practice has limited the opportunity for growth for startup companies that have traditionally flourished in Silicon Valley. This reality is coupled with the fact that many countries around the world have begun utilizing the same principles that have made Silicon Valley so dominant in the tech world, making location within the United States, less and less of a necessity for world-changing corporations, as well as bonafide startups.
