Biography

Sacha is an experienced Dutch Design Engineer with an eye for disruptive ideas. She is an ex-Googler and holds a post-graduate in Creative Leadership from the internationally awarded THNK Creative leadership school. She recently founded a Fashion & Technology business - Misterleopard.com - in Singapore. It’s her ambition to inspire and reinvent the fashion industry through technology: from design to manufacturing and sales.

The key focus of Sacha’s design work is social impact. She designed a sanitation system in the shantytowns of Nairobi, did E-commerce research in the Dharavi slum (Mumbai, India) and developed a drone network for healthcare in Sub-Saharan Africa. Recently Sacha was part of Google's tech-based address system OLC, which has the potential to improve the lives of 2 billion people worldwide who are currently without address.

Sacha lives in Singapore and travels as often as possible to other beautiful islands in South-East Asia to catch some waves and to enjoy the amazing food. Life’s definitely better in flip flops!
