    Our Mission

    To connect & educate entrepreneurs and micro enterprises to support their pathway to success.

    We accomplish this through four initiatives:

    1. Organizing our annual Micro Enterprise Symposium, a high-value annual event held every October; focused on the needs of small business owners in varying stages of the business development cycle.
    2. Organizing quarterly “Lunch and Learns”, utilizing our Chamber’s subject matter experts to educate and entertain our members and guests on various topics beneficial to small business growth.
    3. Creating the Fauquier County Small Business Resource Guide, intended to assist micro businesses in finding the help they need to thrive.
    4. Developing and maintaining a member-driven blog, where the focus is on providing high-value content area businesses can use to learn and grow.
