Our Story

“Prince William County is one of the leading innovation hubs in the region, if not the nation, with cutting-edge life sciences and technology research leading the way.”  – Real Estate Bisnow

Today, Prince William County is a leader for job growth in Virginia and consistently ranked in the top 10 in the United States.  The County provides access to an outstanding talent pool of highly-skilled, culturally-diverse labor; 41% of the workforce has college degrees.  It is one of the few  more affordable business environments in the Greater Washington, DC metropolitan area that offers a favorable blend of large land parcels, along with multi-use zoned sites, incentives, reliable power and ample fiber optic availability, coupled with the lowest programmable computer taxes in the region.  Put it all together and the significance is that Prince William County provides high-impact business solutions, delivering on a highly competitive workforce at a significant cost advantage.

In recent years, the County’s forward thinking in investing in innovation and entrepreneurship has fostered broader recognition of its “Pro-Business” culture, with the development of two new facilities for small start-up businesses in life sciences and simulation, modelling and gaming – the Prince William Science Accelerator and the Virginia Serious Game Institute.

Prince William County is also home to some of Northern Virginia’s most prized assets, which attracts both businesses and employees alike.  Perhaps what it is most distinguished by is its large Department of Defense (DOD) and other military presence at the Quantico Marine Corps Base, or its vast sum of national and recreational parks, being home to the Manassas National Battlefield Park, or high-quality retail-tourism, with its widely renowned mega outlet mall – Potomac Mills.  However, its Innovation Park, a collaborative epicenter of university-research and technology is gaining international and national attention, centered by one of the top 200 research universities in the world, one of only four in Virginia, George Mason University – Science & Technology Campus in Prince William County.
