Super Angel Investor Shervin Pishevar Let’s Loose On Twitter

August 31, 2018

Shervin Pishevar is classified not as an angel investor, but a super angel investor. That means investing is his primary profession, not just a sideline. It also means he gets in early on innovative, high-stakes ventures.

Mr. Pishevar is very good at what he does. He has backed some of the biggest success stories of the past decade. Names like Uber, Airbnb, Munchery, Tumblr, Warby Parker and many others are in his portfolio. Shervin Pishevar was also the co-founder of Hyperloop One and Investment company .

He’s made millions, so when a guy like this embarks on an epic Twitter rant, people take notice. That does not mean, however, that every Twitter proclamation from Shervin Pishevar is equivalent to a statement coming down from the infinite cosmic source of all eternal intelligence.

Rather, Pishevar’s recent Tweetstorm seemed more like a freelance rant that was meant to blow off steam. He opined on a broad array of topics, including the fate of Silicon Valley, inflation, cryptocurrency and some of the world’s biggest corporations.

On inflation, Shervin Pishevar proclaimed that it may be a relic of the past. He said the United States has effectively been exported its inflation abroad through trade policy and practice. Is that really true? Economists certainly have varied opinions.

Shervin Pishevar would seem to be a fan of cryptocurrency, although his comments on Bitcoin were a mixed bag. He suggested that Bitcoin is vastly overvalued and may tumble in coming months. But, he said, Bitcoin may settle in at perhaps $2,000 to $5,000. What he likes about cryptocurrency is the fact that it is, in his words, “a stateless currency.” That provides key advantages to new investors looking for ways to leverage start-up cash.

Mr. Pishevar offered highly critical ideas about such giants as Apple, Microsoft, Amazon and Alphabet. He suggested that these behemoths have been allowed to grow too large. They stifle innovation on the bottom level, he said, making it harder for new people with fresh ideas to gain traction.

In fact, Shervin Pishevar said that the historic dominance of Silicon Valley itself may soon be over. He said Silicon Valley has become more of an “idea” than a specific region where high-tech innovation have gathered and formed a specific culture.

It remains to be seen if the epic Tweetstorm of a legendary investing mogul will come to pass as reality or just be forgotten.
