Catching Up to the Work of Shervin Pishevar

Shervin Pishevar is the venture-capitalist-turned-angel investor.The 60-plus companies funded under his name are clear examples of his impact. Solutions drive each one of his decisions, and ambition guides them. The transportation technology that he’s now funding has the market wondering. The aggressive idea behind his “Hyperloop” revolutionizes how cargo and people will travel. The use of “flight speed” on a rail track brings this business idea forward; the distance traveled and the time it takes are the innovations.

Hyperloop is just the beginning of the fun. Traveling in supersonic style, which is airplane speeds at ground level, might become the norm. We can easily discover more from his tweets. This Iranian American is keen in giving the public a look into the financial markets. Becoming an entrepreneur at just 23-years-old gave Shevrin a good jumpstart.

This gives us a “small” glimpse into the leverage Shervin Pishevar has as a single investor. Venture capital leads him into more projects every year. The more ideas that he’s exposed to, the more solutions that we might see come to life. Shervin Pishevar is rated among “the-top 100” according to Forbes’ venture-capital lists.
