When Shervin Pishevar takes to social media, it is often to convey his ideas and feelings about upcoming economic trends, which, because of his immense success as a venture capitalist, usually grants him a significant audience. His absence from public view amid a number of concerns at his venture capital firm, Investment company, did not go unnoticed, but his return, which consisted of 21-hour “tweetstorm,” did enough to justify his recent silence. During the 21-hour span, which saw him only take a break to eat dinner, Shervin Pishevar discussed the future financial climate of the United States, as well as several startling projections concerning the stock market, Bitcoin, and Silicon Valley’s fall from grace. It was his take on the stock market, which described a future loss of 6000 points, that stood out amongst the 50 tweets.

While President Donald Trump, as well as a multitude of other prominent public figures, have consistently supported the trajectory of the stock market, Shervin Pishevar, known for his uncanny investment ability, has taken a different stance. Immediately prior the tweetstorm, the stock market had begun erasing the gains made in the initial part of 2018, and as Treasury auctions continue to suffer, as well the prospect of continued rising interest rates and credit account deficits, things have not taken the same path as what was seen during 2017. Shervin Pishevar took the time to address the “Cheerleader in Chief’s” staunch support of the stock market by delivering the message, “President’s should not be cheering the stock market,” while also devising the hashtag, TrumpDump, leaving no room for misinterpretation regarding his own perspective.

Bitcoin, which has been the most hotly discussed cryptocurrency in existence, was also a major point in Shervin Pishevar all-night digital diatribe. While many investors jumped off of the Bitcoin train amid massive losses that directly followed massive gains, the co-founder of Virgin Hyperloop One feels that the leading cryptocurrency is due to regain and maintain its stability. While this rise will not follow the course seen in 2017, if Shervin Pishevar proves to, once again, be correct, the next 24 months will be crucial to the growth of Bitcoin, making for an enticing investment.

Eric Pulier has spent the vast majority of his career constantly working to be on the cutting edge of innovation within the technological realm. Eric Pulier’s work with XPrize Foundation put him on the map in a global way but it has been the stuff he has been doing since the early ’90s that makes him the entrepreneur that he is today. Pulier is fortunately open about his habits and what it takes to succeed within his industry and so we plunged into them to see just what makes him tick.

Eric Pulier’s passion for technology started on early in his life. As a child he was absolutely fascinated with computers, how they worked, and what he could to do make them work for his own benefits. Pulier saw early on that there was real potential in technology and as a child in the ’80s he spent his formative years ensuring that he would be well equipped to chase that potential to learn more about us: https://tech.co/author/ericpulier click here.

A passion for technology doesn’t mean much if you don’t know what to do with your concepts. Pulier says, “I quickly realized that the best ideas in the world are useless if you do not have a way to bring them to a large market.” Pulier used this line of thinking in order to focus on developing projects that he could bring to market out in Los Angeles. After graduating from Harvard Pulier would move to Los Angeles and start his first company in 1992.

Pulier came up in the industry in a different way than most new technological marketers. In 1994 he established his first huge company, Digital Evolution, and he had to approach marketing in a completely distinct way. Word of mouth, as it turns out, was the most important way to find a customer. Pulier says, “I credit much of my perseverance and positive outlook to the experiences I gained at such a young age in running that company.” Pulier goes on to explain that he was relatively lucky to end up finding success and thus profit rather early on into his career and that has opened many new doors for him.

He is a philanthropist, futurist, entrepreneur and investor among other things. Although it may sound like I’m talking about Tony Stark, A.K.A. Iron Man, I’m not. I’m talking about Jason Hope. Jason may not have super powers but what he does have is a big heart and big vision.

Jason recently spoke about what he believes will be the biggest advancement in the tech industry for years to come. He was talking about The Internet of Things. Think of it like this. Everything around us will eventually need to talk about successful technology each other; much like your smart phone and PC can do now but on a much larger scale. Soon everything from your home appliances, car, phone, watch and inevitably every conceivable item around you will be connected. Imagine a world where your shoes know what type of surface they are walking on and can adjust the padding to give you the most comfortable feeling, possibly tracking how many steps you have taken and using that information to send alerts to your phone when you need a new pair.

Like all things, competition between companies will advance this technology at a rapid pace. We can already see such things as public transportation utilizing this tech to monitor maintenance needs and real time mapping. Jason honestly believes that The Internet of Things will greatly improve our quality of life.

Jason Hope has an MBA from ASU’s W.P Carey school of Business and is a big believer in helping his community. As a philanthropist, Jason supports numerous causes including the SENS foundation. SENS main focus Anti-Aging. Rather than trying to treat a disease after it happens SENS priority is preventing them before they ever start.

While Jason can’t fly around the skies fighting bad guys, he is a beacon of hope humanity.
