VT KnowledgeWorks and the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center are pleased to offer the VT KnowledgeWorks Global Landing Pad, providing a low-cost, high-quality workspace experience for businesses, companies and entrepreneurs 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.
