Prince William County and George Mason University (Mason) – Science & Technology Campus recently celebrated the re-opening of the Virginia Serious Game Institute (VSGI), which has doubled in space to help meet the rising demands of information technology (IT) start-up entrepreneurs and early-stage companies. The VSGI offers business incubation in the high-level technology fields of simulation, modeling and serious game design into new industries, including healthcare, education, defense, business decision-making, and cyber-security. Originally opened in March 2014, the VSGI is currently home to eight start-up businesses that have created more than 70 jobs, multiple patents, copyrights, innovative simulation and game solutions and over $1 million in corporate support. The additional 4,000-square-foot space allows VSGI to expand services to new IT startups while retaining early-stage companies that are expanding, yet still require the concentration of business incubation services.

The VSGI expansion consists of new product development labs, research space, office studios and a lounge area, and modernized conference room and kitchen amenities. The newly refurbished space is designed to further stimulate intellectual inquiry and creativity in a social think tank setting, which is part of the shared-learning environment that the university-based business incubator cultivates. “[This] expansion is a milestone achievement for the Virginia Serious Games Institute, which has been made possible through the strength of our public-private and community partnerships here in Prince William County and the Commonwealth of Virginia,” said Dr. Scott M.
