Shervin Pishevar can be described as a substantial investor who has for a more extended period invested his money on startup businesses only for him to reap big after the companies prove to be worthy of what he has been looking forward to getting. For example, the venture capitalist invested a fortune of his savings in Uber, and his faith in the company seems to be paying dividends after the company gained roots and is rocking all over the world. This is precisely what he did in Airbnb, and the company is growing to be one of thebest investments in the country.
In one of his most controversial tweets, Shervin Pishevar is of the submission that there have been significant biases againststartup companies in the country. One would say that he is against the growth of more prominent organizations because he is a beneficiary of startup companies which has some sense in it. Additionally, there is a trend where the more prominent organizations in the country seem to be getting preferential treatment from the government such that the companies are getting their way and some tax rebates which seem to be raising some eyebrows.
Instead of the government focusing on ensuring that small organizations gain roots and expand to increase the production of goods and services, it is focusing on protecting large multinational corporations. Recent research studies have shown that the large multinational organizations such as Alphabet, Facebook, and Google among others have beencontrolling the market by determining the prices of goods and services. Controlling costs is not a wrong perspective, and the United States is a free economy, which means that businesses determine the values of their products or services without government intervention.
Shervin Pishevar writes that the government should at least institute price controls in a bid to protect the consumers and the small emerging organizations which are forced to adhere to the prices instituted by large organizations failure to which they will fail. Shervin Pishevar has noted another problem which includes a situation where the large organizations are buying the smaller companies which are trying to enter the market. This is an indication that the companies don’t want to be challenged.
Stream Energy has made massive efforts to give back to the community following the damages of Hurricane Harvey. The damages caused by up to fifty six inches of rain in some areas of Houston needed desperate intervention outside of government interests. Stream Energy founded a relief effort, Stream Cares, in order to aid the surrounding local areas. The Dallas based company has had previous relations with the Red cross foundation as well as Habitat for Humanity. Although donations and support of these two charities are gracious and admirable, Stream Energy wanted to “formally” give back to the community in their own fashion. Hope Supply Co. The company was founded in 1989 with a specific mission in reducing the homeless population in the Dallas-Texas area.
At the Annual Splash for Hope, company associates helped ensure one thousand north Texas homeless children received a memorable day with free meals. The company has had a relationship spanning for the past four years. At this specific event, they helped supply the basic necessitiessuch as clothing and diapers.
Outside of humanitarian efforts Stream Energy also rewards it’s local veteran population by providing planned events. Last December, a cook out was organized in order to benefit the children of local veterans, specifically the daughters. The cook out consisted of burgers, hot dogs, ribs, and laughter. After getting to know ten girls from these families, Stream Energy awarded these girls with an American Girl doll of their own choosing from the local American Girl Cafe. For children, American Girl has been an expensive item added to birthday and Christmas lists for many generations. For the local company to do this for these children, it is above the standard expectation of giving back to one’s community.
This company has made philanthropy apart of its foundation. It is an extremely uncommon trait in a world which sees donations merely as a tax write off. Stream Energy is an entity composed of local families. Giving back to the community is spoken of yet rarely enacted upon. The relationships built between the company and the community is something truly respectable.
