Shervin Pishevar is a successful investor who is followed by many because of his accurate predictions of the economy. When he immigrated to the United States, he became a venture capitalist, and today his success is unmatched. He owns several companies including Dollar Shave Club, Warby Parker and he also has shares in Uber. The entrepreneur is also one of the brains behind the development of Virgin Hyperloop.
In February 2012 Shervin Pishevar he started a series of tweets lasting for 21 hours. In about fifty tweets, he gave warning to investors about the future of America’s economy. At the time of starting his tweets, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was declining, and the trend spooked many investors. He forecasted that it would fall in the year. “I expect a 6,000-point drop in aggregate,” he tweeted.
Shervin Pishevar mentions in a tweet that in 2009 he wrote a comprehensive essay warning the United States. He passed the information that America should not believe in retaining economic monopoly during this Information Age. The message is evident in his tweet, “Silicon Valley is no longer a physical place but an idea that’s gone viral.” In another tweet, “While we build walls…to keep out immigrant talent, that talent doesn’t need to come here anymore,” he warned politicians and citizens.
Some tweets talked about the issues of isolationists who think they can use national boundaries to retain tech talents. In particular, he mentioned that the advent of cryptocurrency gives entrepreneurs an opportunity to do their businesses internationally avoiding frictions and lengthy processes. He also pointed out the ability of China to build a train within nine hours.
Shervin Pishevar also thinks that the world is experiencing an economic shift whereby he sees a kind of evolution. In this trend he sees America struggling to maintain its top position economically. He tweeted, “When all the middlemen are irrelevant, we can have an economy that is more perfectly efficient.” Entrepreneurs should decide whether they would follow the warnings of the seasoned entrepreneur or they would remain as middlemen.
It increasingly became difficult to keep up with what’s important in email inbox. Relevant mails could be buried in junk and it was difficult to retrieve them. Two 24-year entrepreneurs experienced the problem first-hand and endeavored to change it. Jojo Hedaya and Josh Rosenwald started Unroll.me, an email organization tool.
Unroll.Me was conceived out of a personal frustration. Jojo Hedaya, co-founder and COO, could send emails to Josh Rosenwald and never get a response. In defense, Josh said he never got the emails. The tool puts together subscriptions, newsletters, and updates to make it easy for you to decide on what to keep and what to unsubscribe from.
The two entrepreneurs grew up in New York City but met in a college in Israel. They had a lot of similar things. They even share a birthday. They both attended Jewish high schools. Both Jojo Hedaya and Josh Rosenwald didn’t graduate from college. Mr. Hedaya believes that there is more into life than a college degree. The skills are what matters the most.
Jojo Hedaya didn’t anticipate that the company will become this big over 6 years later. In fact, Mr. Hedaya considers themselves lucky owing to the number of startups in the United States that don’t survive in the market. They experience their fair share of challenges while trying to getting Unroll Me up and running. They soldered on during turbulent times and investors started having confidence on them after they stood the taste of time. Josh and Jojo made Unroll Me as simple as possible to the users.
Jojo Hedaya has three credits to finish to be able to go for a degree. However, he plans to go back and finish his studies. The passion he had for simplicity streamlined the email unsubscribe process and as a result, users gained control over their inbox. Under his tenure, the company gained millions of users over the past few years.
Unroll Me grew rapidly and attracted the attention of Rakuten-owned shopping startup called Slice. Slice is in the email business in that it pulls up receipts and analyzes them with an intention to help shoppers to track their discounts, packages, orders and more. The acquisition came in the wake of negotiations on a partnership deal.
