International Business Alliances Report Richardson is looking to join forces with overseas technology centers to foster strategic alliances advancing mutual business and technology research opportunities between our local companies and universities. While the telecommunications and semiconductor industries have been the catalysts for our technology growth, other technology clusters are developing at a rapid pace, offering exceptional international expansion opportunities for foreign companies and organizations with similar industry expertise. While we are focusing on recruiting overseas companies that are in our core industry clusters, we welcome inquiries regardless of industry.
