In a 50-Tweet Storm, Shervin Pishevar Shares Unsettling Economic Thoughts

On February 5, 2018, tech investor Shervin Pishevar began a tweet storm on Twitter that business-focused media outlets have called everything from exceptional to bizarre. Always an attention catcher, Pishevar opened his 50-tweet spree with a bold shot.

“Some thoughts on financial storms I seeing brewing ahead. I expect (sic) 6000 point drop in aggregate in (sic) months ahead,” he stated. Over a 21-hour period, Pishevar detailed his position.

Troubling Financial Tools

Importantly, Pishevar negatively criticized multiple aspects of the American investing arena. He warned that volatility indexes exist only to allow risk-taking loopholes like those that lead to the previous decade’s recession. And he seemed particularly dubious of exchange-traded funds and managed-future funds.

Silicon Valley’s Actual Location

For a decade, Shervin Pishevar has cried to anyone who would listen that, though a region called Silicon Valley sits within the United States, the nation does not hold the tech capital and its innovative industry within its boundaries. “As I’ve said before,” Pishevar wrote, “Silicon Valley is it (sic) longer a physical place but an idea that’s gone viral.” He next called entrepreneurship a movement without borders.

Wrongheaded Immigration Policy

Born in Iran, Pishevar is a naturalized U.S. citizen, and he criticized the current presidential administration’s immigration stance. “But while we build walls (sic) physical and culture (sic) to keep out immigrant talent (sic) that talent doesn’t need to come here anymore.”

China’s Rising Profile

To show America’s slipping grasp on world leadership, Shervin Pishevar tweeted a link to news coverage of a Chinese construction accomplishment. In January, a team of 1,500 workers required only one night to build a new train station. “Meanwhile, our infrastructure is in tatters, decrypt (sic) and decaying,” he tweeted.

A Top-Heavy Industry

An igniting force for Uber and Airbnb, Pishevar bemoaned practices of the five tech companies he calls Modern Ma Bells, Alphabet, Microsoft, Amazon, Apple and Facebook.

Of their power to exclude competing startups, Pishevar said, “Small acquisitions are silent assassinations.”

If U.S. tech, investing and government leaders listen to Shervin Pishevar and change their nation’s path, it could enjoy improved economic stability.

Mike Baur: Giving Swiss Start-Ups The Tools They Need To Succeed

Swiss entrepreneur Mike Baur is the co-founder and executive chairman of Switzerland’s top private new business incubator, Swiss Startup Factory. Baur helped start the company in 2015 when at age 39 he retired after spending 20 years in the banking industry. He also started the boutique strategic advisory for wealthy individuals and families called Think Reload. Mike Baur’s work is legendary in Switzerland. At age 19 he began his banking career as a commercial apprentice with UBS. His natural aptitude for finance and the training his two MBAs provided led Baur to quickly move up through the ranks. When he retired, he was on the board of a major Swiss bank.

 

Rather than take his considerable fortune and new found freedom and go enjoy all the pleasures the world had to offer, Mike Baur decided instead that he wanted to help as many young Swiss entrepreneurs as possible to be successful. In addition to founding and running Swiss Startup Factory, Baur also works with a number of other organizations helping Swiss entrepreneurs developed the skills and connect to investors and other entrepreneurs so their businesses will do well and grow. He also invests in Swiss digital start-ups to give them the resources they need to succeed.

 

Raised in the Freiburg region of Switzerland, Mike Baur always wanted a career in banking and finance. He earned MBAs from the University of Berne and the University of Rochester New York at a very young age and began his banking career. Now a husband and father of two, Mike Baur runs a business in the heart of Zurich, Switzerland designed to make other people rich. The idea for Swiss Startup Factory developed because as an investor he found the people behind many of the companies he thought had potential lacked the training, expertise, knowledge and connections they needed for their companies to flourish.

 

His solution was to create a ‘boot camp’ for young entrepreneurs combined with a business execution platform designed to help the best start-ups. Mike Baur wanted to give them more than just coaching modules. He puts them through a rigorous execution driven experience that prepares them for the often rough and tumble business world. While the Swiss government already offered startup incubators, Swiss Startup Factory is decidedly different. It is more intense and filled with real world business challenges the owners and staff of the start-ups are taught to overcome

How Tobias Jaeger Maximizes Business Efficiency

Tobias Jaeger is a highly influential businessman who is known primarily for his work as a managing partner at AXIOM Venture Captial, a financial services company which caters primarily to the tech sector. However, Mr. Jaeger has a long history in business which stretches back all the way to his early college days. Due to his impressive success and continual rise, many are curious how he manages to so continuously both create and grow his companies, in a recent interview with IdeaMench, Mr. Jaeger answered many of this widely asked questions, the first and foremost being: How does he stay so productive?

 

Mr. Jaeger responded to the query by saying that there was no great secret to it, productivity with anything is largely a product of proper nutrition, that is to say, eating healthy. This may seem like a extremely obvious answers but he also notes that it is one that is very, very often overlooked, most prominently and unfortunately by the people who need it most, busy entrepreneurs. He stated that it was no great surprise for one’s diet to take a downward turn in terms of quality once one reaches a certain threshold of success given the extraordinary demands of maintaining and growing any given company; there are contacts to manage, emails to be read, websites to be gone over, social media posts to be posted, and that is to say nothing at all of the constant travel for conferences, business meetings, ect. All of these previously mentioned things produces two very common behavior trends, firstly, stasis of the body (one is always sitting, whether sitting in a car or a computer chair), which is naturally bad for ones health and, secondly, a tendency to eat whatever is the most convenient (i.e. more often than not, that will be fast food).

 

Mr. Jaeger also noted that, in addition to a reasonably healthy diet and some moderate exercise to revitalize his energy, always being sure to ask for a business associates contacts that could potentially be helpful to a particular venture, is another highly overlooked strategy that he has found to be of immeasurable importance.
