Business Retention & Expansion Program

A dedicated resource to help existing companies thrive.

REDI Cincinnati's Business Retention & Expansion (BR&E) program is the region-wide economic development initiative that creates a pro-business environment and provides businesses with a platform to talk about successes and concerns to future growth.

The program seeks out companies that may be expanding, facing a risk, or needing connections to a variety of resources. REDI is committed to helping regional businesses accelerate growth.

 In the next two years is your business...?

  • Hiring new talent?
  • Needing incentives or information about other financial assistance to support growing infrastructure or investing capital?
  • Training and developing employees?
  • Looking for a new site to expand or relocate your company? 

REDI is the first point of contact for companies looking to grow and expand.  We also coordinate with the local community in a targeted outreach approach to assess needs and address opportunities that will help companies thrive. 

Businesses may be visited as part of the BR&E program if they:

  • Operate in Butler, Brown, Clermont, Hamilton or Warren counties 
  • Do work in REDI’s target industry clusters
  • Are on a growing or declining trajectory
