At the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center, we enable big thinkers to turn ideas into impact. There is strength in numbers. When entrepreneurs, startups, early seed or established companies become part of our dynamic community, they gain access to programming, resources, invaluable partnerships alongside bold thinkers. At COgro, we cultivate a culture of creativity and advantages in an environment where people thrive. But, we don’t stop there. We are space for those seeking alternative ways to work, from remote workers to visiting professors.

What works best for you?

Unlike a traditional office or company setting, coworking spaces consist of members who work for different companies, ventures, and projects. We also understand that flexibility is core to our members.

At COgro... we offer 24/7 access to unreserved or reserved open workstations, cubes, and one to four person team offices. Click here to download our COgro floorplan, then contact us so we can begin working on the best fit for you and/or your teams needs.
