The Shervin Pishevar Tweetstorm of the Century Got People Thinking

Posted on 13 August, 2018 in Bitcoin, Business, CEO, Entrepreneur, Financial Expert, Investment, technology

Before considering the wild and off-the-wall Tweetstorm unleashed by angel investor Shervin Pishevar, first take note of some of the entities this man has backed in recent years.

The list includes names like Uber, Airbnb, Warby Parker, Dollar Shave Club, Slack — and that’s just for starters. Shervin Pishevar was also the co-founder of Sherpa Capital and Hyperloop One. He also invested in Munchery, Tumblr and Uber series B.

So with a track record like that, providing a critique of the many bold claims he made recently in dozens of Tweets should be accompanied by a certain amount of circumspection and perhaps respect.

Well, what did he Tweet? Where do we start? How about with inflation. Shervin Pishevar said that inflation may be a relic of the past. He said the United States has effectively been exporting its inflation in the form of international trade policy for years now. He also points out that many top economists have made bogus predictions about inflation in recent years.

The always hot topic of cryptocurrency did not escape the Twitter tirade of Shervin Pishevar. He said that Bitcoin is due for a vast blow back in value, perhaps settling in at a value of $2,000 to $5,000. He’s a fan of these kinds of financial instruments, however. He likes the fact that Bitcoin is a “stateless currency,” and thus amenable to leveraging new investment in creative ways.

The outlook for Silicon Valley is not bright in the view of Shervin Pishevar. He said the age of dominance for this regional hub of high tech innovation will soon be challenged by other forces around the world. He said Silicon Valley is more of an “idea” now than a region of California where innovation has thrived for years.

Shervin Pishevar also took on the giants — names like Apple, Microsoft, Google and Amazon. He scolded these powerhouses for stifling start-ups and “the little guy” who wants to build a new company from the ground up. The behemoths have too much power, Pishevar moaned in a Tweet.

Time will tell if the Shervin Tweetstorm was prophetic or just a bunch of hot air blown off by a hot investor.

GreenSky Credit Shines the Light of Technology in the Financial Lending Sector

Posted on 13 August, 2018 in Apps, Business, CEO, Company, Education, Entrepreneur, Founder, Investment, Investor, technology

Technology has been greatly embraced in the finance sector due to the manner in which it has been transforming the operations of the involved organizations. Through technological advancements, a lot of activities in the finance industry have been made easier to handle and also minimizing the chances of loss-making by the forms. However, this advancement in the technology has taken years to reach the lending and credit sector. Many lenders and creditors have been engaging their customers in a prolonged process of filling in forms with volumes of details so that they can access credit from their facilities. These tedious processes have been brought to an end by GreenSky Credit with their recent innovation of an online platform that will enable Creditors to assess and evaluate their customers more conveniently before they access their credit facilities.

After the formation of GreenSky Credit in 2006, the main focus of the company is to ensure convenience and efficiency in the manner in which credit customers are served. It has been very normal for the financial institutions to subject their borrowers to tedious processes of the loan application which sometimes have resulted in frustrations to the borrowers. GreenSky Credit, led by its Principal, David Zalik, realized this market gap and decided to fill it. Instead of providing funds directly to the borrowers, the organization acts as a lender to these creditors. Then it’s the obligation of the financial institutions to vet their customers and ascertain that their creditworthiness is unquestionable and approve them for the access of the funds. Then the obligation of GreenSky Credit follows to disburse the approved funds into the accounts of the borrowers.

The benefit of this platform to the clients is the ease at which they can access credit funds, without filling the tedious forms that they used to fill in the past. Also, the unnecessary scrutiny to which the customers were subjected has also been eradicated. No need to disclose minor details about their families and background to access the funds. To the lenders, GreenSky Credit acts as their surety for the availability of funds whenever the customers borrow.

The 7 New Kitchen Cabinet Trends with Siteline Cabinetry

Posted on 11 October, 2017 in architecture, storage, technology

The 7 popular trends of 2016 in kitchen cabinetry have been listed on the blog run by Siteline Cabinetry, a custom kitchen cabinet and storage area manufacturer owned by the Corsi Group. Those trends are as follows:

  1. Personalized cabinets: Home owners are becoming more creative when it comes to combining colors, materials and surface finishes for their kitchen cabinets, and cabinet manufacturers and suppliers like Siteline Cabinetry have taken customers’ designs into consideration while building them and expand the range of cabinet features made available to consumers.
  2. Shaker style: New innovations have been seen throughout 2016 in the shaker style cabinet, so it is no longer just a plain, boring five-piece door with a recessed center panel. There is a lot more room for improvement and adjustment with the otherwise simple design that has been built and sold for decades.
  3. Neutral colors: White cabinets still remain a popular choice for many, but other colors which are along the neutral line that are neither too dark nor too bright, for example grey, are taking over from the traditional color of choice.
  4. Horizontal cabinetry: While vertical cabinets were and still are very common in kitchens, horizontal cabinets have been picking up an increasing share of cabinet sales in 2016, thanks to the refined look they bring to the kitchen along with easier access to the jars inside, since the need to stack cabinets on top of each other is vanishing with the wider storage they provide.
  5. High tech add-ons: Next generation home owners are coming up with more innovative ideas every day to combine technology with the kitchen surroundings, such as installing embedded charging stations in their cabinets. These new ideas are encouraging cabinet manufacturers like Siteline to think from a more advanced technological perspective.
  6. Functional design: Not only are cabinets expected to look and feel good in this day and age, but they are also expected to have greater functionality in order to fulfill storage and organizational requirements of home owners.
  7. Subtlety in design: Clean lines are becoming the norm in kitchen cabinetry as they provide flexibility in case a future upgrade becomes necessary.
