REDI October Wrap Up
 REDI 's October was a busy month.

We held our 3rd Annual Commercial Broker Breakfast with over 75 attendees and 12 local vendor tables, hosted by Cushman & Wakefield and The JBG Companies and sponsored by  First Potomac Realty Trust.  

This event, a part networking and part trade show event,  brought together  brokers along with developers/owners and a range of service providers including architects, attorneys, contractors, and engineers.  Check out the Clip O'the Month below for a quick look.

October also saw the first disbursement from our Business Expansion Fund, part of the new Incentive Funds Program supported by the City.  The first Fund recipient was KNG Health Consulting. 

With the grant, KNG Health added 40% more square footage and plans to hire 2-4 employees in 2017. The company's commitment to Rockville since its founding in 2007 and potential for continued growth made it an ideal candidate for the Fund.  You can find out more here.
