Now, the reason we are here is not just to see the great job that Unicorn is doing, but also to help tell the world what Unicorn is doing

As I always say, it is not just enough to do good things. You must be seen to be doing them.
We will give you visibility. We will tell the world what you are and what you do. And we will also take this to the government. I am sure many government MDAs will be happy to know what is going on here and to leverage on many of them. We will be the link between you and the government.
