Obris had its start in frontier markets. Our first investor event was in Ulan Bator, Mongolia nine years ago. Our person on the ground at that time was Scott Osheroff. After completing university in the US, Scott quickly found his way to Asia, where as of this date, he has lived in six countries including Mongolia, Singapore, Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam and Uzbekistan.  Scott is the Fund Manager and CIO for Asia Frontier Capital’s Uzbekistan Fund. He resides in Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan. We are interviewing Scott today with two goals in mind. 1) To provide a spotlight on frontier markets, and in particular the emerging economy of Uzbekistan. And, 2) With nine years under his belt Scott understands a great deal about frontier markets and offers significant insights to those who are less familiar with Central Asia and Frontier investing.

Inspired by entrepreneurship and the emerging world of crypto, Brandon put med school on hold. He started investing in crypto while at university stemming from a fascination with Etherium.In the months that followed, he wrote and published “The Satoshi Sequence,” a seminal book that discusses how blockchain technology will continue to evolve. I read The Satoshi Sequence shortly after it was published, and continue to rate is as an outstanding overview of blockchain.In early 2018, Brandon started building a crypto mining operation. He also started a blockchain consulting business called BlockHash, which has evolved into the BlockHash Podcast that he now hosts. Visit the link to learn more:
