FedWriters Receives Grant from City

Fairfax City business FedWriters is the recipient of a $15,000 City Connected Grant. And on Wednesday, Nov. 13 at 6 p.m., the City will celebrate this company’s graduation from the EDA/MEC Business Incubator Program. At the same time, the business will hold a ribbon-cutting for its new headquarters in the heart of Old Town Fairfax at 3975 University Drive, No. 440.

The grant’s goal is to promote economic growth in Fairfax and encourage businesses graduating from the MEC incubator program to relocate into the City. The business-incubator program is a partnership between the EDA and GMU.

FedWriters is a professional writing, communication and analysis company founded in 2010 by Mitchell Cho. Since then, it’s grown to more than 65 employees and was recently ranked No. 146 on the Inc500 list of the fastest-growing companies in America.

“The MEC has been an invaluable resource for helping grow FedWriters,” said Cho. “The support staff is incredible, the building amenities are top notch and the real office location gives startups credibility.”
