"We would like to take this opportunity to thank Amala for the stellar support the company has provided us in preparing our grant application. We could not be happier with Amala’s guidance, professionalism and meticulous reviews of the documents. Taking us through the maze of paper work was a feat in itself....Amala provided us with superior quality consulting."
