Join the World Affairs Council Upstate and our co-hosts, the European American Chamber of Commerce-Carolinas and Upstate Alliance as we welcome Sheri Kaiserman, co-founder of Maco.la, a blockchain focused equity investment fund and advisory/HR services firm.  Sheri is an accomplished finance professional with over 30 years of Wall Street experience. After beginning her career at Oppenheimer and spending 10 years as an equity research salesperson, she went to Wedbush Securities and built and ran their equities business for 16 years.  Under Sheri’s leadership, Wedbush was the first Wall Street firm to begin publishing research on private companies (2010), and then was the first to publish research on the topic of bitcoin and blockchain (December 2013).
Sheri left Wall Street early in 2018 to co-found Maco.la and enjoys sharing her knowledge about what blockchain technology can do for business and society.

null“I feel so fortunate to have gotten involved in the blockchain space as early as I did and I love helping educate others on the topic. We are still so early in this technological evolution and it has been immensely rewarding giving others the opportunity to experience the same excitement I get every day.
– Sheri Keiserman
