REDI to Celebrate City Key Companies
As part of REDI's 20 th Anniversary, we've created a new retention program aimed at solidifying relationships with the City's leading businesses: Rockville Key Visits, or RKVs for short. 

REDI is joined on the monthly visits by representatives of the Mayor & City Council, our Board of Directors, and partner economic development organizations. 

RKVs are arranged with businesses that are major employers, operating in a priority industry, and/or exhibiting fast growth potential. The program creates an open line of communication to discuss the opportunities and challenges facing the local business community, which benefits all parties through a regular exchange of information and resources.
The first RKV took us to Supernus Pharmaceuticals, which focuses on developing and commercializing products for the treatment of central nervous system disorders and employs over 160 in its Rockville headquarters.  As a major employer operating in the region's important biotech cluster with strong potential for growth, Supernus was a great visit to kick off RKV!
