Leeuwarden alderman and Enterprijs jury Abel Reitsma praised the social impact of Autimelody and the young entrepreneur's heartwarming motivation. The Enterprijs is an award for the best idea of a Frisian student entrepreneur and consists of 5,000 euros in start-up capital and one year of guidance from Inqubator in Leeuwarden.

Alice Haywood says: ‘I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to participate low and behold winning the Enterprijs! I really believe in Autimelody and can’t wait to see how it develops with the help of the incubator as well as the financial support.’ And about the finale: ‘I was so happy to have familiar faces from the campus to support me during my pitch as well as calming my nerves beforehand!’
