There is some fascinating economic news pouring out of the twitter account of Shervin Pishevar. The capitalist knows the economy. He was an early investor in Uber which has seen incredible success and he founded Sherpa Capital.
But Shervin Pishevar has been in hiding of late. Enemies that he has picked up along the way are attempting to harm his image. They have flung sexual harassment accusations at him which has made it difficult for the capitalist to run his own company. He resigned his post at Sherpa Capital because he doesn’t want his enemies to harm his company while they try to defame his image. He’s been silent ever since.
You can certainly tell that he misses his work. His tweet storm centers around the economy, the stock market, technology, investments and more. It seems the messages revolve around everything he would be talking about at Sherpa Capital. Instead, he has the Twitter-verse as a captive audience.
What I look for founders and teams:

One of the most fascinating messages that came out of the 21-tweet storm concerns infrastructure. It’s long been a promise of President Trump to invest money into infrastructure. That has not happened. Instead, American infrastructure has been left to rot and decay. But Shervin Pishevar thinks the American people should start thinking about the long term.
His tweets point to technology innovated by Elon Musk. Shervin Pishevar believes that the American people should invest in something called a hyperloop. This type of transportation essentially uses the same technology that keeps a table hockey puck afloat. But the air pressure can be used to send a train to another city at an unbelievable speed. Engineers believe that they can get a train from Los Angeles to San Fransisco in less than 30 minutes. That’s quicker than a flight from LAX to SFO.
This forward thinking concerning infrastructure is the only way forward. Shervin Pishevar believes that the country needs to stop stalling, living in the past or looking back. Rather, he says the country needs to embrace the technologies of the future, and we need to stop deriding those who innovate these ideas.
