Anastasia Volkova

CEO, Survival Russian


Anastasia Volkova is the founder of Survival Russian App, a software company that is developing a mobile application that teaches Russian as a foreign language. She has been teaching English and Russian for 7 years now. She is a Moscow State University graduate with a Master's Degree in Journalism. In January 2015 Anastasia started working on her 5-level coursebook for Russian learners. In June 2015 when the first book was ready she turned to a very young industry of mobile language learning application where she believed she could truly make a difference. The idea attracted the team of a developer, designer and marketing specialist. To speed up the development process she started looking for seed-investment and options to relocate somewhere closer to the customers.

Enterprise Ireland’s Competitive Start Fund offered both and she applied for the programme in August, 2015. In October Anastasia travelled to Cork as a CSF finalist to pitch to the judging panel. Anastasia was successful and her project was approved for investment. In December 2015 Anastasia incorporated her company in Ireland, moved to Cork and joined the thriving community of regional startups. Anastasia believes in the bright future of digital education and wants to contribute into mobile language learning that so far has been driven mostly by businessmen rather than experienced teachers.
