Shervin Pishevar Notes That Silicon Valley Has Lost Its Competitive Edge

Silicon Valley is known as a hub for tech innovations. It is actually home to some of the world-renowned tech companies. Shervin Pishevar stormed Twitter on February 2018 with a series of tweets, and one of his main subjects was tech innovations in Silicon Valley. Shervin was not shy to mention that Silicon Valley is gradually losing its competitive edge. One of the major reasons that Pishevar could not avoid mentioning California is the fact that he is an angel investor in some of the tech companies in the area. He is one of the individuals that have contributed to the growth of Silicon Valley to reach its current standings.

Shervin Pishevar said that there is a change in the tech industry, and individuals from different countries are now able to come up with comparable innovations. He tweeted that, “A tectonic shift has been brewing as Silicon Valley has lost some of its competitive edge against competing zones of innovation.” He mentioned that entrepreneurship is global and it is not restricted to one area (Silicon Valley). This is one of the major causes for the lost competitive advantage.

Shervin Pishevar, in another tweet, wrote that “As I’ve said before Silicon Valley is no longer a physical place but an idea that’s gone viral. Entrepreneurship is a movement. Borderless.” There is a lot of talent out there, and the only way that California could retain its competitive edge is by tapping immigrant talent. In this regard, Pishevar tweeted that, “But while we build walls physical and culture to keep out immigrant talent that talent doesn’t need to come here anymore.”

The tech industry requires a lot of skill, and the U.S. is short of enough workforce. There is a shortage of American-born engineers and tech experts who have graduated from American universities. If America does not embrace talent from outside, Silicon Valley might be left lagging behind, while some of their consumers may shift to tech companies in other countries. Innovation and entrepreneurship should go hand in hand, and Shervin Pishevar believes that it is high time Silicon Valley not only embraced immigrant talent but also sought it.

Hurricane Harvey was the first significant hurricane to hit the US after the Hurricane Wilma that hit the country in 2005. Hurricane Harvey caused a lot of damages during the four days that it lasted. The enormous rainfall caused catastrophic flooding across Texas, with thousands of people losing their homes and roads turning into rivers. Several residents of Texas were forced to relocate and start from scratch since they did not have time to save their belongings. Unfortunately, the hurricane claimed not less than 82 lives. Nonprofit organizations have been involved in helping victims of the storm as well as civilians who escaped the damages by opening their businesses and homes to assist the less fortunate. Local business owners are donating food and water to victims, and local schools are also offering free meals to children.
