During VT KnowledgeWorks Global Partnership Week, we're bring university students, faculty, staff and business leaders from all over the world together to congregate, collaborate, form partnerships, and build our global networks in permanent social, academic, and business relationships.
Let's join together to extend our networks and build our relationships by sharing our experiences during the week in social media. Here's our hashtag for the event:
If you're in Blacksburg and Roanoke, Virginia, USA during Global Partnership Week, please share what's going on and add #vtkwglobal. People from all over the globe who weren't able to attend, or are connected to the people who are attending, will get to know what's happening!
On Twitter, we invite you to post updates using #vtkwglobal as a hashtag. Anyone can search Twitter using "#vtkwglobal" as a search term, then click on the #vtkwglobal hashtag to see the stream of tweets about the event. Click here to see the latest #vtkwglobal updates on Twitter.
On Facebook, we invite you to post updates and photos to VT KnowledgeWorks on Facebook and include the hashtag, or to tag VT KnowledgeWorks in your updates, so we can share globally what's happening for those here and abroad.
If you upload a YouTube or Vimeo video, send us links! We'll post the videos on the VTKW Facebook page or on our blog.
Here's more about using hashtags from Z. Kelly Queijo, founder of Smart College Visit, Inc., and winner of the Open Business Concept Competition at the 2010 VT KnowledgeWorks Entrepreneurship Summit.
We will be live streaming the VT KnowledgeWorks Global Student Business Concept Challenge on Thursday, August 22, 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM EDT.
