Let's Get Connected LLL at Virginia Tech June 18 2020 - Flipbook - Page 3
Amazing things are unfolding at Virginia Tech. We are creating new models of
interdisciplinary learning in higher education and exploring new frontiers of
research and innovation at the human-technology frontier. Our use-inspired
portfolio offers the foundations for start-up companies with the potential to
ignite ecosystems. K-12 STEM education programs and inclusion and diversity
initiatives are addressing issues of access and equality that are central to
our national and economic competitiveness. And, if that’s not enough, we are
launching an entirely new Innovation Campus in Alexandria, Virginia, to meet the
rapidly changing needs of the 21st century digital economy.
By design, we’re not doing it alone. Systems-level issues cannot be addressed
within an ivory tower. Virginia Tech is part of something bigger than ourselves,
and industry partnerships are an imperative.
Partnerships don’t happen by accident. They take attention, focus, and expertise.
LINK LICENSE LAUNCH has been built to deliver. We are a team of professionals
dedicated to all aspects of corporate partnerships, from research collaborations,
to corporate giving, to technology commercialization, to start-ups.
One of my favorite quotes is credited to Margaret Mead: “Never doubt that a
small team of committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only
thing that ever has.” We agree. And it is with optimism, hard work, and
service-oriented sensibilities that we get to work.
In just two years, we have grown from an office of one to a team of twenty and
have been involved in some of the largest and most important partnerships and
investments in the history of Virginia Tech. We are just getting started.
We hope you are as excited to get to know us as we are you. Together, we can
change the world.
