The Stack World: Building a DAO, with Sharmadean Reid

Season 3, Ep. 3

Sharmadean Reid is a serial entrepreneur, based in London. She’s an inspiration to many women around the world, and is widely known for her impact on culture, the beauty industry, and women’s empowerment -  and she received an MBE in 2015 for her services. 

Her entrepreneurial journey started at University, where she created a zine called WAH - a zine - as a side project. She then set up the nail salon, WAH nails, also originally as a side project. She is now founder and CEO of The Stack World - an ecosystem for women, which creates content, builds communities and hosts events for women.

Her personal mission is to empower women economically and socially through tech, and much of her life has been spent bringing people together and harnessing new technology for social impact. 

In this conversation, we talk about why she’s so excited about the future of the internet - what many are calling web3 - why she learnt about NFTs, the role of participation in new companies, and why she’s been working on a Stack DAO - her latest experiment.
