Gabriella leads on the Open Call Competition for the Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA). DASA finds and funds exploitable innovation to support UK defence and security quickly and effectively, and support UK prosperity. Gabriella is also a trustee for charity Off The Record, leading their digital strategy. She was previously the Sector Lead for Digital for Enterprise Europe Network, sitting on the EEN worldwide sector group for ICT, the worldwide sub group for Immersive Technology and the EEN Sector Group for Women Entrepreneurship. Gabriella has worked at an array of organisations; from the small, working as project manager at a bespoke software development company in Liverpool; to the large, working at the Department for International Trade as an adviser in Belgium. Whilst DASA works with suppliers internationally, they are based in Wiltshire and enjoy working with many of the innovative local businesses. Gabriella is keen to see more of Swindon & Wiltshire’s local triumphs grow to become worldwide players.
