Torc was born in Blacksburg, but that’s not why we’re here. We stayed because this is a perfect place to innovate.

The area around our HQ is like a purpose-built testing ground for autonomous cars with everything from rural mountain roads to 8-lane divided interstates. Downtown Blacksburg is adjacent to the 3rd largest university in Virginia, and its streets are frequently traveled by pedestrians and cyclists, as well as rapid influxes of visitors during large sporting events.

Plus, our team gets to create the future of transportation while they live in one of the most beautiful parts of the country. Blacksburg hosts a unique culture and has been ranked in Livability’s 2018 Top 100 Best Places to Live.
