Dr. Abdul Rehman, CEO, SSIMWAVE, GRADUATE”When we started, we were engineers. We had no business experience. Working through the program with the mentors gave us the confidence to grow our business knowing that whatever challenges we ran into, someone at the AC would be there to help us put the pieces of the puzzle together. They gave us the confidence to be successful.
