Impact Entrepreneurship

Sasha Charlemagne

MS, Strategic Design and Management, Parsons School of Design

Sasha Charlemagne is a problem solver with a startup spirit.  She is set on building a space for underrepresented artists, entrepreneurs and changemakers to collaboratively lead the movement for a more creative, equitable and sustainable future.

Her experience spans over 12 years on the producing team of film and television productions, where she opened and ran production offices for companies like Amazon, HBO, Disney and NBC Universal.  In the not too distant past, she also supported the launch of a new subscription video platform for Toca Boca, an app developer in the kids space.

Sasha is embarking on a new journey to develop expertise in design thinking, a methodology for bringing innovative and purposeful products, services and business models to market.  As such, she is enrolled in the Masters program in Strategic Design and Management at Parsons. Additionally, Sasha is an inaugural fellow in The New School’s Impact Entrepreneurship Fellowship program.

She firmly believes that the future belongs to all of us.

What is the unmet social or environmental need you intend to address?

If underrepresented artists, entrepreneurs and changemakers had the space, structure and support to collaborate on socially innovative projects for underserved communities, then they would seize those opportunities. The future belongs to all of us.
