“The biggest thing is emphasizing on the people of the company. It sounds like a total cliché; everyone says you put the people first. The reality is that when you start a company with a different business model where the government isn’t accustomed to buying services this way, you need to support your people and make them more resilient. I would like to say we’re like a salmon swimming upriver. It was only recently people said 1901 Group’s business model, managed services, rural areas, leveraging tech, opening the aperture of talent, is the way of the future.”
