The Team

 

Dr. Catherine Bushell
Enterprise Manager

Catherine is the Enterprise Manager and leads the Cardiff University Enterprise Team. She founded Cardiff University Enterprise in 2008 as a focus within the University for extracurricular enterprise education and business start-up support. The Enterprise team has developed over the past few years from a lone voice to a 6 strong team of enthusiastic enterprise educators. Catherine’s main role now is to ensure that the team continues to encourage and enthuse students and graduates and nurture their innovative and enterprising abilities.

Following a PhD in plant sciences, Catherine decided that enterprise was more fun than tiny plants and started to grow enterprise activities instead. She completed an MSc in Entrepreneurship in 2008 and is currently participating in the International Entrepreneurship Educators Programme run by the National Council for Enterprise Education.
