Starting New Global Relationships

VT KnowledgeWorks has announced the VT KnowledgeWorks Global Landing Pad which provides a low-cost, high-quality workspace experience for businesses desiring to set up a home office in the USA. Until now, having a presence to conduct business in the United States has required a commitment of money, time and effort that challenges most small- to medium-sized companies.  That has changed with the launch of the Global Landing Pad in the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center, Blacksburg, Virginia, USA.

Anne Giles Clelland, president of VT KnowledgeWorks member company Handshake Media, Incorporated, will present “The Entrepreneurial Clinician: What Clinicians with Great Ideas for Health Care Mobile Apps Need to Know” during the session What Goes into Making an Extraordinary mHealth App? at the mHealth Summit December 2-5, 2012 in the Washington, D.C. area. The Summit is expected to be attended by over 4500 from 50 countries. (Read Handshake Media's press release.)

Anne was invited by Sandrine Hart, Senior Trade Advisor with UBIFRANCE, to deliver a presentation on trends in the mobile health industry to a delegation of French mHealth companies during a private session at the Summit. (Read about the French mHealth companies.)

As a VT KnowledgeWorks member company, I am part of the VT KnowledgeWorks Global Partnership whose mission is to build an 'on-going cooperative association of regions building permanent social, academic, and business relationships.' The Partnership works – I am delighted to continue to be connected with Martin Houdbine and Charles-Eric Gorron, participants in the first VT KnowledgeWorks Global Student Challenge. The mHealth Summit will be the perfect time and place to start new global relationships. I look forward to sharing news of the VT KnowledgeWorks Global Landing Pad with members of the delegation of French mHealth companies. Perhaps we will soon be working in partnership together at VT KnowledgeWorks!"
