Access to Federal Collaborators Puts the Fauquier County Advantage in Focus

Overflowing with Advantages

Just 45 miles from Washington D.C., Fauquier County offers Government and Defense Contractors close proximity to our nation’s capital as well as a convenient reverse commute for the thousands of highly qualified workers in the D.C. Metro area.
Our lease and purchase costs for office space are far more affordable than the D.C. area average, and with the high quality of life and lower cost of living that Fauquier County offers, it’s easy to see why we’re attracting more Government Contractors every year! Additional advantages include:
George Mason University- Mason Enterprise Center (MEC)

The MEC offers affordable office space for small and startup contractors along with business support and training from the Small Business Development Center (SBDC), George Mason University and many other resources. Located in beautiful, vibrant downtown Warrenton, the MEC is a great place to launch your business!
