Lindsey McInerney

Lindsey McInerney is a leader in web3, a space set to be the successor of our current internet. She is co-founder and CEO of Sixth Wall, a blockchain entertainment company that serves as the digital arm of Mila Kunis' Orchard Farm Productions.

She has been named one of 'The 30 Most Influential People in the Metaverse,' as well as one of 'The Most Prominent Digital Futurists to Watch Out For in 2022,' alongside Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. An early internet nerd and tech futurist, Lindsey is consumed by the emergence of the metaverse, and excited about the ways crypto, blockchain, gaming, NFTs, and XR will change our current digital and physical landscape.  

As the former Global Head of Technology and Innovation at AB InBev, the world's largest brewer, she launched Stella Artois into the metaverse in an explosive partnership with ZED RUN, a crypto horse racing game. One of the first major brand executions in the space, the Cannes Lion award-nominated campaign put Stella Artois on the map as the first beer brand and FMCG company in the metaverse and was well received by traditional and crypto media alike. 

Whether building hyper-growth startups or advising Fortune 500 companies, the Royal Family, or the United Nations, Lindsey has spent her career helping people understand the impact of evolving technologies and adopt them early. She speaks regularly at conferences and is sought out as a thought leader on topics ranging from crypto, NFTs, metaverse, AR, VR, XR, and web3.

Originally from Toronto, Canada, Lindsey is currently collecting jpegs on the blockchain, meeting friends in 3D worlds, and keeping sheep out of her garden in the countryside of England where she resides with her partner and dog.
