Shervin Pishevar is a renowned entrepreneur in America. He has made significant steps since he migrated into the US from Iran. This is evident from the success of the companies he has worked with and co-founded. As an angel investor, he has to be constantly looking at the state of the US economy, tech innovations (where he has mainly invested), and globalization. The current state of the American economy might just be the one that triggered him to storm Twitter with 50 tweets in 21 hours in February 2018.
In one of his tweets, Shervin Pishevar gets nostalgic about a trip he had to Romania back in 2009. Basically, this is intended to show that there is a lot of talent out there that American entrepreneurs need to exploit. After all, there aren’t enough American-born engineers in the United States to supply the skill set needed in their companies. Shervin Pishevar tweets that “Wrote some of the seeds of this on a trip To Romania recruiting a young talented coder to SGN in 2009.” This tweet is followed by a picture of an essay which talks about the need for American entrepreneurs to reach out to the talent across the world. It is where the future lies.
Shervin Pishevar shows support for globalization. He is in line with the idea that the world has evolved, and knowledge is no longer defined by culture or geographical locations. Today, the world can be likened to a global village. America is no longer a monopoly when it comes to entrepreneurship. There are many people out there with skills as good, and even better than those that American entrepreneurs look for in their countrymen.
He notes in his essay that embracing talent from elsewhere is one of the best ways to learn. This is one of the best ways to build a great America, especially with the unpredictable and ever-changing financial markets. Evidently, Shervin’s word has come to be true 9 years down the line. He himself notes that “Now 9 years after that essay the world has evolved away & beyond us. And the chickens are coming home to roost.”
