Our story is rooted in creating impact for innovators.
Born out of a need to translate Virginia Tech research to commercial potential, the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center (VTCRC) was established in Blacksburg in 1985. Since then, it has been home to over 750 premier organizations with a common goal to disrupt industries. Today, with operations across Virginia, the research park continues to be a destination for growth and a space with purpose. Our mission is to create space with purpose where innovators have access to unparalleled resources, partnerships and opportunities for growth in a world where big thinkers turn ideas into impact. VTCRC is a for-profit wholly-owned, private subsidiary of the Virginia Tech Foundation, and is, therefore, not a state entity.
