While he may not be a household name as yet, Shervin Pishevar has made serious waves in tech communities across the globe in recent years with his brash investing style and novel approach to bringing truly stellar companies to public notice. If you’ve ever used services from companies such as Uber or Airbnb, you likely have Pishevar to thank; with his Sherpa Capital investment firm, Pishevar helped launch “gig economy” firms such as Uber and Airbnb into the mainstream, and Silicon Valley has not looked back since.
With a fan base that includes both investment professionals and tech diehards, Shervin Pishevar’s social media following has a tendency to hang on to the investor’s every word; indeed, a recent 21-hour tweet storm from Pishevar’s Twitter account quickly became a must-read for Pishevar’s critics and supporters alike. Predicting that the US market would suffer a landslide drop of over 6000 points in the near future, Pishevar’s Twitter tirade wasn’t always rosy in its prognostications, but the Silicon Valley stalwart’s conjecture that Bitcoin would rise from the ashes and regain its peak value in the near future was welcome news to many tech investors who see crypto-currency speculation as the wave of the future.
Shervin Pishevar’s brazen investing style isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but even Pishevar’s critics admit that the former CEO still has what it takes to pick winners in a turbulent and often unforgiving tech market. Of one thing we can be certain, however, and that is the ability of Shervin Pishevar to boldly go into market territories that no tech investor has gone before. For Pishevar’s fans, that is reason enough to keep watch for another tweet storm and a glimpse into an investment brahmin’s mindset.
