Anastasia caught the entrepreneurial bug at the age of 12, creating a pretend-company for a school project, and never looked back since. She had tons of fun building small businesses all the way through high school, and eventually co-founding her own photo studio with an experimental and avant-garde focus at the age of 19.
After several years, hungry for new challenges and opportunities she moved to NYC where her love for innovation and tech led her to work for several startups, creating marketing strategies and assessing and advancing business development opportunities. Her craving to learn more about the NYC startup ecosystem steered her path towards Starta Ventures, where leveraging her strengths and heavy background in communications and marketing she assumed the role of Director of Сommunications and eventually advanced to become the Head of the Accelerator Program.
Starta Accelerator is a NYC based program that empowers startups from Europe through exclusive 3,5-month mentorship program. Anastasia and her team build successful global companies, contribute funds and other resources to foreign entrepreneurs at seed and pre-seed stages. Starta Accelerator is part of Starta Ventures, a venture capital global brand, the mission of which is to break through traditional venture capital barriers to empower the next generation of tech entrepreneurs.
