Shervin Pishevar Takes on Silicon Valley in Tweet Storm

Investing in Uber prior to the ridesharing service became a known commodity seemed like a risk. Shervin Pishevar looked straight at the risk and didn’t blink. He felt the world was ready to move on beyond the traditional model of the street taxi. Uber may be experiencing ups and downs finance-wise, but the tech-based ridesharing company definitely reflects the future of transportation. Shervin Pishevar maintains a strong understanding of technology and business in general. The entrepreneur has tried his hand at many different business endeavors. Recently, he took his hand and types a lot on his keyboard. The result was a massive 21-hour tweet storm. He covered a range of different topics. Not surprisingly, the tech industry was among them.

Pishevar directed some concern over the size of the growing tech industry. His comments about the “big five” tech companies stressed that these companies created a de facto monopoly. Pishevar notes that breaking up the monopolies of Silicon Valley could be a wise move. As a historical comparison, Shervin Pishevar pointed out the breakup of Bell Telephone, which he refers to by its old nickname “Ma Bell.”

As a venture capitalist, Shervin Pishevar has directed significant amounts of money into Silicon Valley investments. So, his somewhat negative sentiments about Silicon Valley may come off as surprising. Should they really? Since he directed critical funds into tech ventures, Pishevar clearly knows quite a bit about the tech industry and its corporate culture. Perhaps he is someone who knows the proverbial “inside track” about the direction the industry best take. Monopolies aren’t always good for business. Breaking up monopolies can spawn more competition and help the industry thrive.

The tweet storm by Shervin Pishevar did cover a number of other topics. The total number of tweets was about 50. He addressed matters related to cryptocurrency and the stock market. With cryptocurrency, he pointed out some positives and a few negatives with digital currency trading. As for the stock market, he’s more bearish than bullish. In fact, Shervin Pishevar believes the market may be headed for a crash. Could the crash occur far sooner than later?

How Dr. Mark McKenna Plans To Reform The Elective Surgery Industry

Dr. Mark McKenna is an entrepreneur in the elective healthcare industry. He has a lot of things planned for his career in 2018 starting with the grand opening of what he calls a “medical aesthetic experience” clinic in Buckhead, the trendiest neighborhood in Atlanta, Georgia. The clinic is called OVME (pronounced like “Of Me”) and it will offer minimally invasive cosmetic surgery procedures.

When people first visit OVME he has a private office including in the clinic where patients will receive their individual consultations. This clinic also features four luxurious and private treatment rooms where the procedures will be performed. He said that when designing the OVME clinic he wanted to combine state-of-the-art technology with medical aesthetics so that patients receive the exact look they were hoping for.

Before opening his clinic, Dr. Mark McKenna sent out a press release to local media. He said that the medical aesthetic industry has grown way to stale. People, he said, are seeking out a new experience and it is his goal to reinvent how elective care is perceived.

Dr. Mark Mckenna has been in this industry for the past 18 years. After graduating from the Tulane School of Medicine he started practicing in his dad’s clinic while also working in the real estate industry. Eventually, he left real estate behind and moved from New Orleans to Atlanta. He owned and operated another company in Atlanta called ShapeMed for a number of years but sold it to a gym chain.

In another revolutionary move for the elective care industry, Dr. Mark McKenna is planning to release a mobile app for it. This app, also called OVME, will shake things up by introducing an Uber-like setting to this industry. People will tap in what procedure they want performed and where they are at. A licensed cosmetic surgeon will then show up and do the procedure. Dr. Mark McKenna is really excited about this and has been attending trade shows and other events so that he can get cosmetics surgeons signed up for this new service in cities across the United States.
