Blacksburg Growth to Fuel Innovation Campus

With recent news about Virginia Tech’s Innovation Campus in Alexandria, the pipeline – specifically for high-tech disciplines – will draw from a deep reservoir in Blacksburg, fueling growth for universities and companies throughout Virginia.

Sonu Singh, CEO of 1901 Group expects the company to work with the Innovation Campus, where collaboration with industry will be built into the design of the program and the campus’ infrastructure.

“Anytime you have a world-class engineering school in the town that you’re based in, it’s great for the business and it’s great for the school,” said Singh, who majored in industrial and systems engineering at Virginia Tech. “This allows us as a company to mirror what Virginia Tech is doing. You could start your career in Blacksburg, or you could migrate to our offices and programs in Northern Virginia.”
