Shervin Pishevar tweets on the coming revolution brought about by hyperloop technology

Shervin Pishevar has been one of the leading voices for the development of hyperloop technology. In addition to being one of the most vocal proponents of the many potentially game-changing benefits of this novel form of transport, he has been willing to put his money where his mouth is. Through his venture capital firm, Investment company, Shervin Pishevar has personally invested hundreds of millions of dollars in the creation of Virgin Hyperloop, the first company ever to build a fully functioning and to-scale hyperloop system.

 

Frictionless investments and frictionless travel

One of Shervin Pishevar’s favorite concepts is the elimination of frictions in capital markets and throughout the economy as a whole. Now, he has extended this concept to its literal conclusion. Pishevar is seeking to create a form of travel that has literally reduced friction to a virtually unmeasurable amount.

This is just one of the things that makes the concept of a hyperloop so exciting. Engineers know that trains are among the least-friction-producing means of transport that currently exist. Aside from low aerodynamic drag, trains produce virtually no friction due to the extreme rigidity of the rails. This is the cause of freight trains being the least expensive form of land transportation. But despite the vastly less friction that trains produce relative to cars and trucks, they still produce a sizable amount of friction.

Hyperloops promise to completely eliminate all friction by creating a sealed vacuum in which a car will levitate at speeds approaching the sound barrier. This could produce a mode of transportation that is considerably faster than jet travel but that will consume only a tiny fraction of the total fuel.

At the same time, Shervin Pishevar says that the system promises to all but completely eliminate the hassles encountered with boarding and deplaning at airports, a process that can take up hours on every trip. A hyperloop will be able to be boarded and deboarded with nearly the same speed and efficiency of a subway. And dedicated routes may eventually enable travel between cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles in a matter of minutes.

Sahm Adrangi: The Successful Entrepreneur across the Globe

Sahm Adrangi is an Iran native who was raised up in Vancouver, Canada. He graduated from Yale. Sahm launched his hedge fund company, Kerrisdale Capital Management in 2009 just when a historical bull market was in progress. The company is located in New York City

Career Path

Short activism is the act of shorting a stock and then publicly argues the reasons with comprehensive research to back up the short. Sahm Adrangi and his company have a credible reputation with shorting built over the years.

Sahm Adrangi has made a name for himself as a short seller by shorting stocks. At only 36 year- old. In 2011, he made his first successful short activism by shorting fake US-listed Chinese companies. This garnered him a reputation as a short seller.

Since then, Adrangi has continued to take down satellite organizations like Globalstar and Dish Network. Sam Adrangi latest shorting has been on Eastman Kodak. Kodak is an imaging company planning to offer blockchain service to safeguard photographers from copyright encroachment in an attempt to divert investors from the beaten-down stock which was trading at about $5.05.

Short sellers face challenges, especially during a bull market. During times when the market is doing pretty well, it is vital for short sellers to have their notions right as the chances of losing money are steep as compared to when the market is flat.

A 25 percent loss of stock in the market is a disaster whilst a disaster on the short side is considered loosing 200 percent. During a bull or healthy market, there are more opportunities for short activism due to stocks that are not under control with respect to valuation.

Sahm Adrangi claims that through passive shorting it is possible for one to make money. This is however hard, as shorting requires sharing your views and research publicly which is not so with passive shorting. Though he is not a market bear or an expert in global macroeconomic policy, Adrangi prides in making money off companies with businesses that don’t work as good business are worth a great deal.
