by Emma Haslett

1. If you had done something else, what would it have been?

Having studied law and Japanese at university, I was heading towards law but soon realised I'd be miserable overseeing deals in a skyscraper.

2. What else would you have named your business?

[Start-up support club] Enterprise Nation couldn't really be called anything else, but o satiate my desire for coming up with names I've since used them on our books: Spare Room StartUp, Working 5 to 9 etc.

3. If you could be based in another city, where would it be?

New York. I would like Enterprise Nation to expand into the US and I’d also like to return to Tokyo.
