What do you mean by withdraw? 

You cannot do business in the US on a B2 visa.

Yes, meeting with clients is ok if the company is a foreign company. But in his first post the OP said he has a company in the US. He can't work for a US company on a B1.

Whatever your title, the most common form of abuse with B1 visas is bringing $1 a day programmers from abroad (often India) to write code while 'transferring knowledge'...no matter their actual job title. I imagine the CO believed that these supposed 'business meetings' were just a cover for actual work...as most 'clients' can be accessed through various remote video conferencing programs rather than alleged face to face meetings and the ever popular 'knowledge transfers.'

Regardless of title, OP was either denied a visa or denied an admission. S/he has opted not to clarify what's meant by 'withdraw' in spotty english.

Bottom line, s/he is free to reapply, but if the reasons behind the denial haven't changed, s/he is looking at another denial.

Whenever I heard or saw the phrase, 'knowledge transfer' during an interview, that was the end...just a bogus term to disguise the fact that the applicant was really planning (and was invited) to work in the US, usually in the back room of some IT shop....
