Diversity: Meet the new melting pot

Fairfax County has one of the world’s strongest economies. It also has one of the most diverse business communities, taking advantage of proximity to the opportunities of Washington, D.C., transformational companies and industries, and an inclusive, solutions-oriented atmosphere that prizes talent and hard work.

The diversity of our business owners, executives and workforce is as wide-ranging as the industries in which they work. More than 40 percent of our businesses are minority-owned, woman-owned or veteran-owned.

Learn more about our robust minority business community by downloading our fact sheets about business diversity and the services offered by the FCEDA’s Business Diversity Division.

Fairfax County also has a strong international business presence. And while we’re home to Fortune 500 companies, the vast majority of county business establishments are small and locally owned.
