Reflecting on her nomination and subsequent award win, Katrina said: "Being part of the Enterprise team and working at the DEC is an absolute blast and I love working with entrepreneurs, from students to established businesses, and planning all sorts of weird and wonderful things, from cheese parties to escape rooms, to help people connect and learn.
Massive thanks to the Enterprise team for supporting me to learn the ropes (still lots of that to do!) and letting me run wild with my ideas.”
