International Students to Shadow Local Company Leaders

As part of its Grand Prix award for winning the Annual Entrepreneurial Project Challenge at TELECOM Sud-Paris, the MulteeGaming student team will arrive on Monday, September 9, 2009, to spend a week of immersion in entrepreneurship at VT KnowledgeWorks.

One feature of the week includes the opportunity for MulteeGaming team members to shadow local company leaders.

According to VT KnowledgeWorks’ Director Jim Flowers, “The market for technology-based businesses is global. By encouraging person-to-person overseas relationships for our local companies and entrepreneurial students we provide them with easier access to markets beyond our shores.  Of course, the reverse is true as well.  The dialogues also improve understanding of American markets for our foreign visitors.  Everybody wins.”

Here's a who's who of the new "overseas relationships" commencing next week, listed in alphabetical order by MulteeGaming team member and host company:
