Sasha Zakharova

Project Director @ Counder

I’m an experienced venture builder and project manager, with a passion for the entrepreneurial/startup space. To date I have run over 60 programmes, resulting in direct and targeted impact on 5000+ entrepreneurs across general tech, greentech, agritech and healthtech sectors. My unique portfolio and industry outlook includes growth and delivery in 6 countries, including South Africa, Namibia, Nigeria, Kenya, Indonesia and Brazil.

I supported the development of several early-stage businesses, and therefore understand the process and requirements of building a successful startup when resources are finite. I have experience and expertise across a variety of departments including marketing, human resources, and operations.

A little bit about myself, I am currently based in Cape Town and have lived in 5 countries to date. My current passion project is learning how to fly a plane! I love a good challenge, meeting new people and always up for an adventure.

Looking forward to working with new businesses and supporting them in accessing the African market!
