Shervin Pishevar Talks the Rise and Fall of Monopolies

Carving out a very successful career in the world of venture capitalism, Shervin Pishevar has become the human incarnation of the American dream. Today, many people recognize him as one of the foremost authorities regarding investing, and he has the track record to back it up. As a student at the University of California, Berkeley, Shervin Pishevar initially embarked on a career path that was a far cry from the world of entrepreneurship, majoring in molecular cellular biology.

Shervin Pishevar would soon realize that he wanted to take his career path in a different direction, and, much to the dismay of his father, he delved into the volatile world of investing, eventually becoming a major player due to his involvement with companies such as Tumblr, Dollar Shave Club, Uber, Warby Parker, and Rap Genius. The co-founder of Sherpa Capital and Virgin Hyperloop One has used this stellar reputation to garner a considerable audience, and he often utilizes Twitter to break down his thought regarding financial issues, as well as future investments. He recently took to Twitter in what turned out to be a 50-tweet posting session that would last an entire 24-hour period. During this time, he touched on issues regarding globalism, the economic uncertainty of the United States, future monetary systems, as well as a number of other controversial topics.

The man who lives and breathes startups, set social media on fire when he discussed the position of the top five unicorns in the United States today, even referring to them as monopolies. In Shervin Pishevar’s estimation, the power of corporations such as Amazon, Apple, Alphabet (Google), Microsoft, and Facebook, is leaving little breathing room for startup companies today, which, in turn, is staggering innovation. Although he believes that these companies will eventually fail, “as they should,” there is a direct correlation between their power, the speed of acquisition, and the loss of Silicon Valley’s competitive edge. The unique qualities that made Silicon Valley such a dominant entity in the world of tech innovation, have now crossed the borders placed by the United States, and exist worldwide, in the form of concepts.
