Huntsville High School graduate Katie Anderson has garnered plenty of attention since starting her water conservation business, Save Water Co., in 2014, including being named to Forbes Magazine’s 30 Under 30 list in 2015 for the brightest young minds in their respective industries.

Now, Anderson can claim that she is the top female entrepreneur in North America.

Anderson was named the laureate of the North American region during the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards two weeks ago in Singapore for the effort her company has made to save water in Texas.

Anderson said it felt incredible to receive such an honor, especially with her parents Ricky and Cindy in attendance, amongst a field of candidates that included 17 other inspirational women from six regions of the world.

“It was such a surreal moment to even be there,” Anderson said. “It was a mixture of emotions. There was a lot of excitement and definitely some nervousness. It was amazing to have support from (my parents) in the audience.”

Anderson was competing to become the laureate of the North American region against Angela Braren, who created an online platform called Instrumentl to help researchers find and apply for grants, and Rhonda Harper, whose company, Penrose Senior Care Auditors, assesses the living conditions of senior assisted-living centers across the nation.

As one of the six laureates of the award ceremony, Anderson received $100,000 to invest in her company, which she said will help her company in its mission to conserve water around the world. She will also be flown back to Singapore in December to attend INSEAD, a graduate business school that ranks among the top business schools in the world, for a week.
