We received nearly 650 applications from a diverse range of competitive candidates and conducted nearly 200 interviews. We were blown away by Shishi’s deep knowledge of the crypto landscape and her technical acumen. We place a high emphasis on founder references, and founders provided nothing but high praise regarding their interactions with her. It was a long journey but we couldn’t be more excited by the outcome.
Prior to Lattice, Shishi was part of the investment team at Blockchain Capital. While at Blockchain Capital, she conducted investment diligence and portfolio support with a focus on decentralized infrastructure. While studying Data Science at UC Berkeley, Shishi first learned about crypto through Blockchain at Berkeley. While there, she was a consultant and participated in DeFi governance.
Shishi will continue her focus on infrastructure at Lattice. More specifically, Shishi is interested in exploring the innovation and trade-offs of different execution environments. For instance, experimentations around virtual machines (VM) that embrace different kinds of execution paths and account models, which potentially might lead to certain VMs being more optimal for specific types of applications. Another area of focus for Shishi is finding solutions to solve the need for large-scale secure and verifiable computation. This will ensure integrity of computation and preserve privacy of the input data via encryption and decryption schemes. Shishi believes that this will be a major unlock for the next wave of crypto adoption. Shishi closely monitors existing solutions such as MPC, zero-knowledge technology, and FHE, the synergies between these technologies, and significant research breakthroughs that will make them the backbone of large-scale computation.

Investing in Ensemble
We are excited to announce our investment in Ensemble, which is building a platform where artists can sell the artifacts from their creative process and tell the story behind it. Artifacts are often referred to as ephemera — pieces from the creative process of a project. Artifacts are created for a specific purpose and aren't meant to last after their original use.
The Emerging DAODrop Trend
There is a new type of airdrop emerging; the DAODrop. Airdrops are the single most important marketing tool at the disposal of crypto teams today and they are no longer just for retail. More infrastructure and middleware projects are getting on the airdrop train by offering airdrops as a way to reward and incentivize continued development by other protocol & application developers leveraging their infrastructure.
Investing in Tholos
We’re excited to announce our investment in Tholos, which is building the next generation of crypto-native financial infrastructure. Today most crypto-native organizations run their businesses on top of SAFE multi-sig wallets. Multi-sigs have become a mainstay of crypto - project treasuries, DAO’s, groups of friends all use multi-sigs to jointly store assets.
