Shervin Pishevar, recognized as one of the most pronounced venture capitalists in the world, has made a living handpicking bonafide startup companies, and due to the volatile and declining nature of American capitalism when pit against the rest of the developing world, believes that there will not be another Airbnb or Uber for the next decade or more. Throughout his career, Shervin Pishevar has consistently made brazen pronouncements regarding the uncertain nature of the American economy, as well as upcoming trends and investments, and in most cases, he has guessed correctly. Since leaving the University of California, Berkely with a degree in molecular cellular biology has helped to found companies such as Virgin Hyperloop One and Investment company, but amid controversy during the latter half of 2017, he has been uncharacteristically absent from the public spotlight. In an epic return that media outlets have deemed a “tweetstorm,” Shervin Pishevar took to his favorite social media outlet, Twitter, in order to discuss a myriad of serious issues that he foresees will eventually disrupt the entire American infrastructure over the short term, as well as for the long haul.
The role of companies such as Amazon, Apple, and Facebook in the American economy has undoubtedly played an instrumental role in providing a number of jobs and assets to the American people, yet, according to Shervin Pishevar, these unicorn companies have also stagnated the growth of innovation around the country. Once known as the world capital of innovation, as well as the latest in technological developments, the United States, and particularly, Silicon Valley, has begun to see a significant drop-off in production, which has been dramatically altered by the rapid acquisition processes of these companies. Although competition has always been fierce in the world of the entrepreneur and the venture capitalist, the rapid growth, and power of these unicorns has caused many of the most promising companies to become absorbed before realizing any real individual potential. These companies, according to Shervin Pishevar, are built on the “framework of monopolies,
” and because of this, their size and power will eventually lead to their demise.
