THE GROWTH CONNECTION
TISTA Science & Technology has provided services to a variety of federal agencies, including NASA, the Department of Agriculture, the Internal Revenue Service, The Department of Veterans Affairs and the Office of Personnel Management, among others. “My goal for TISTA is to be a leader in our industry,” says founder and president Ahmed Ali. In the second quarter of 2016, TISTA was awarded two large contract vehicles, positioning the company for further growth in the health IT and cybersecurity fields.
Quick Tip: “The buck always stops with me, every decision is on my shoulders, and the ability to carry that responsibility properly and lead my company is a privilege.”
TISTA has built strategic partnerships with small businesses through its TISTAConnect program. “We mentor and assist fledgling companies in their growth,” which helps both TISTA and its partners solidify their position in the marketplace, says Ali. “Our commitment to our strategic partners is a strong one, and we are very proud to provide other companies with our business acumen and mentorship.” In particular, Ali wants TISTA to lend its expertise to veteran-owned businesses and make a difference in the lives of veterans through community service. “We feel that with our current strategies, partners and employees, we are at the forefront of greater things, and we welcome the challenges that await,” he says.
