Maria Sharapova is a world-class tennis champion and entrepreneur. Her passion for craftsmanship and detail is reflected in everything she does — both on and off the tennis court. After moving to the United States from Russia at age six to pursue her tennis career, Maria turned professional at age 14. She won Wimbledon at age 17 - the first of her five career Grand Slam titles - and was the 7th female player in the open era to complete the career Grand Slam.

Outside of tennis, Maria is the founder and CEO of her premium candy brand, Sugarpova, where she oversees the day-to-day decision-making and growth of the company — from creative branding and packaging to product R&D and retail expansion. She is also an active investor and strategic advisor, and since retiring from tennis in February 2020, has dedicated much of her time to exploring new ventures and expanding her business portfolio. In addition to her work as an athlete and entrepreneur, Maria is passionate about design and architecture, and brings a creative, hands-on approach to all of her projects.
