JumpStart and FirstOffice for Good People and Good Companies

My passion is sharing good news about good people and good companies.
VT KnowledgeWorks at the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center I was reading the latest from VT KnowledgeWorks on its co-working space, the JumpStart Community, and a new package called the FirstOffice Program. VT KnowledgeWorks is a client of Handshake Media and we publicize the VTKW member companies, partners and sponsors through the VTKW blog and our social media services and consulting.  JumpStart and FirstOffice offer many features and benefits, but it was this bullet point that captured my fancy:  “4-month membership in VT KnowledgeWorks.” 
This means two things to me:  1) My company, Handshake Media, Incorporated, is a VT KnowledgeWorks member company.  When I hear of new members at VT KnowledgeWorks, I want to clasp their hands.  They have no idea what good is ahead for them. 2) I’ll get to continue to pursue my passion – my company will get to publicize FirstOffice members.

Here are highlights of JumpStart and FirstOffice from VT KnowledgeWorks:

The VT KnowledgeWorks JumpStart Community is a co-working space for start-up companies and businesses.  Located at VT KnowledgeWorks at the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center, JumpStart is a step up for home office-based entrepreneurs in all industries, but still short of a full commitment to a private office suite.
FirstOffice Program – $750

Fundamentals and perks:

  • 4-month membership in the JumpStart Community for up to 3 people
  • work space
  • conference rooms
  • interaction with fellow founders
  • wi-fi
  • coffee
  • $50 gift certificate to the Wikiteria Cafe 

Business acceleration services:

  • 3 two-hour strategy sessions with 2 professional mentors
  • market opportunity review
  • product/service differentiation
  • profitability plan
  • 4-month membership in VT KnowledgeWorks

According to Jim Flowers, “We offer Class A office space, plus all the amenities and perks of a CRC domicile, such as cool conference rooms, easy parking, and seasoned professional mentorship.  And we run a professionally administered blog and social media program to publicize our members.  And, BTW, we are easily accessible from all over town, including the campus, via regularly scheduled Blacksburg Transit bus service.”
Looking forward to hearing who signs up for FirstOffice and to sharing their good news!
