Montgomery County has an unusual business climate.  Although our local labor market is dominated by Virginia Tech and the hospitals, we are a powerful generator of new, private, local companies.  The Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center (VTCRC), home to over 180 businesses, is the economic hub of our private job growth.  The high-dollar, high-tech jobs that will persist in the economy of the 21st century are being created and nurtured on about 230 acres adjacent to the Virginia Tech campus.

VT KnowledgeWorks, a division of the VTCRC, now serves over 60 of the most progressive new businesses in the region, and that number is growing steadily. Sponsorship of this program is a uniquely powerful way to participate in the formation and growth of the brightest and best new companies.  Our sponsors are impressively visible within the community through our publicity channels and enjoy preferential access to the leaders of the blossoming enterprises that constitute our membership. VT KnowledgeWorks is supported by numerous corporate, university, and municipal sponsors.

VT KnowledgeWorks sponsorship is $2,500 and includes these general benefits:

Also included are these benefits related to the Global Partnership Event (GPE):

  • Logo display on sponsor signage during key events throughout the GPE.
