Shervin Pishevar highlights the plight of the Silicon Valley in a tweet storm

Shervin Pishevar has made significant contributions to the growth of the US economy by supporting the development of some of the greatest companies in the country. He was an early Uber-investor, a company that has grown into a Unicorn in less than a decade. He has also played a significant role in the growth of Virgin’s Hyperloop One. He believes that the idea behind Hyperloop will take us to the next generation of technology if investors support it.

Shervin Pishevarr is the immediate former managing director of Sherpa Capital and also a former head of Menlo Ventures. He specializes in venture capitalism, by looking for great startups and investing in them. He believes that every great idea deserves to be supported and therefore helps new entrepreneurs with great ideas to connect with investors who will support the growth of other ideas. Shervin Pishevar is the kind of investor who is not only interested in providing the financials but also offering advice on how to implement these ideas. This is the reason why his input in the growth of Uber is prominent. He did not only provide funds needed but also helped the founders to execute their plans.

In a tweet storm early last year, Shervin Pishevar made it clear that although the Silicon Valley has been a great source of leading global innovations, it is likely to lose in coming months due internal and external factors. He blamed the government for failure to enact a bill that would allow immigrants to find the space in the country, an initiative he attempted to establish, but the bill failed at the Congress. He believes that going into the future; the country will face a shortage of great ideas. Shervin Pishevar also blamed external factors whereby the idea of Silicon Valley has been implemented in other countries. Every country is trying to protect its talent by establishing innovations hubs that can rival the Silicon Valley.

Shervin Pishevar also noted that the actions of five monopolies in the United States have stood in the way of other great ideas. These monopolies consist of the Alphabet, Microsoft, Amazon, Apple, and Facebook. They are buying every great idea coming out of Silicon Valley.
