OUR CEO-RAO'S SCALING 4 GROWTH (S4G) GRADUATION CEREMONY

When I received an email from the Virginia Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity (SBSD) in November 2020 to apply for NEW VIRGINIA "StreetWise MBA Scaling for Growth (S4G) Program” I was not sure if it was meant for someone like me. With each box that I was able to tick like number of years, SWaM Certification, revenue of income to even be considered for an interview it felt like worth a shot. I went ahead and applied in hoping for something better. This program was mentioned as designed for Scaling for Growth(S4G) only. Being a disadvantaged entrepreneur struggling to scale and grow with ever rising operating costs that were made worse by the pandemic, I am desperate to try any option. I sat for several days to connect the DOTs and now I believe this “New Virginia StreetWise MBA S4G Program” is a right solution for Global Data Solutions (GDS).

I remember being so nervous when I had my panel interview. To be honest I didn't think I would be chosen. Why? Because I'm not a traditional business owner and I was a technocrat with poor sales pitch and may be on the verge of overqualification because GDS is 14+ Years old company. Surprisingly out of the entire state of VA, I was one of the 16 that were chosen to go through this program that is fully funded by the state. Then I consulted my colleagues at our GDS whether it is OK for the team if I am away & dedicated every Thursday, and they graciously agreed for it and now we are Graduated out of StreetWise MBA - S4G Program on July 22, 2021.

It was a tough journey (in brief) full of planning, reading, practicing, executing case studies for GDS, implementing strategies, debating on failures, writing goals, methodically discussed about pandemic impact for us, lavishly played with numbers & weekly CEO meetings etc resulting 100 Page Challenging Growth Plan of our GDS for 2021-2024. Now I am ON Business’ to scale GDS, generate more jobs, add value to the local to national economy, Volunteer to support S4G program as needed, and bring more innovative Software as a Service Products and Cloud based Technology Solutions to the world.

GDS would like to Thank Virginia Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine, Interise, Rita Ricks for her expert facilitation and the entire team of Virginia Department of SBSD for including me into S4G Program and wishing our GDS for scaling and success.
