The VT KnowledgeWorks Global Landing Pad provides a low-cost, high-quality workspace experience for businesses desiring to set up an 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.
The VT KnowledgeWorks Global Partnership is a multi-layered, ongoing cooperative association of regions building permanent social, academic, and business relationships.
The Fourth Annual VT KnowledgeWorks Global Partnership Week will be held August 18 – 24, 2013. The annual VT KnowledgeWorks Global Partnership Week brings university students, faculty, and staff from all over the world together to congregate, collaborate, form partnerships, and build their global networks.
