For the City of Mason, public and private entities working as one is what turns a strong business environment into an advanced ecosystem where collective strengths remove barriers and build new foundations. With more than $500 million in new investment and more than 3,000 new jobs in 2015 and 2016, the City’s focus on growing the bioscience and technology sectors has resulted in 80 percent of new job growth in these industries.
