About the Author
Sherry Stewart Deutschmann is a serial entrepreneur and angel investor. Her first venture was LetterLogic, Inc., a company she founded in her basement and grew to $40 million before selling it in 2016. LetterLogic was named an Inc. 5000 company (fastest-growing, privately held businesses in the United States) for ten consecutive years.
Sherry was honored by President Barack Obama as a White House Champion of Change in 2016, and her company was visited by Tom Perez, after her fair living wage caught the attention of the then U.S. Secretary of Labor.
Her employee-first culture brought recognition to LetterLogic from The New York Times, Forbes magazine, INC. magazine, Fast Company magazine, and from EY, who selected Sherry as one of their 2009 Entrepreneurial Winning Women.
Sherry's passion is helping women-owned businesses get better access to networks, capital, and markets, and in 2015, she was appointed to the National Women's Business Council, a small group of women who advise Congress, the SBA, and the president on issues related to entrepreneurship for women.
Since selling LetterLogic, Sherry has become an angel investor, specifically investing in women-owned and women-centric businesses. In the fall of 2019, Sherry founded BrainTrust, a company dedicated to helping women entrepreneurs grow their businesses to the pivotal $1 million-in-annual-revenue mark.
Sherry is married to Mark Deutschmann, a real estate developer in Nashville, Tennessee, and is mother to Whitney, stepmother to Chelsea, and grandmother to Nikko and Reagan.
