“You are the talent. Think of us as the support group.”
That’s the motto of REMHAI, an Atlanta-based technology solutions company dedicated to helping startups and small- and medium-sized businesses build and develop their digital presence.
Ramala Ande, one of the co-founders of REMHAI, knows all about what it means to be supported––and perhaps more about what it means not to be supported.
