As an 11-year old girl, a solid introvert, I could never have imagined the impact of receiving my first computer at home.
From discovering the world of chatrooms, social networking and then e-commerce, I started on a path that led me to being the youngest VP ever at Yandex, named by the Moscow Times as one of the "Top Ten Russian entrepreneurs to watch" , a poster girl of the Zurich Startup scene, and now to Berlin, where I lead Skyroam’s Global Business Development as well as EMEA team.
I've also had the benefit of falling, hard, twice. Succeeding, strongly, multiple times and I've lived and worked across the world, from St. Petersburg, Moscow, Vienna and Zurich, to Singapore and Berlin and with quite a few appearances in San Francisco and New York.
This experience and travelling have ended up with me being invited to speak at The Mobile World Congress, Techcrunch events, Campus Conference, MBLT, CTIA, Pirate Summit and Exec IO to name a few.
I have been active as an entrepreneur, corporate and startup executive and startup mentor, supporting such programs as Techstars and Startupbootcamp worldwide. In all these years, I have focused on startup founders first and enjoyed coaching hundreds of tech leaders and their teams on their challenging journeys.
I have been challenging myself with coaching training to be able to deepen the experience for my coachees and mentees and grow myself as a leader. I have leadership and life coaching experience as well as a strong desire to grow better startup leaders and help them build remarkable companies, that are based on bravery and trust.
It's crazy how far a little grey box with 4mb of Ram and operating DOS can take you!
