Growing Global Businesses, One Handshake at a Time

“It involves the whole community,” Flowers said. “The businesses have put up the money and allowed some shadowing, and the university has provided a lot to this as well, and they’re staying in local homes. We’re creating a global network in Blacksburg.”
– Jim Flowers, Executive Director of VT KnowledgeWorks, quoted in the Collegiate Times, Virginia Tech, about the VT KnowledgeWorks Global Student Challenge
