Verena was a 2017/18 Fellow. For her frontline phase, she was placed at Origin Housing in North London. Her consultancy project for Orbit Housing investigated how social enterprises can win more public sector contracts. Based on this project, she co-founded Supply Change. She was mentored by Emma Prest.
Verena graduated from the University of Maastricht with an MSc in Economics. After living in Germany, the Netherlands and France, she moved to London to join its buzzing tech scene.
