Our Initiatives

Engage with economic development experts

REDI Cincinnati is the first point-of-contact for companies seeking to locate or grow in the 16-county, three-state Greater Cincinnati region. As a leader in regional economic development, we collaborate with longtime, respected partners to move game-changing initiatives forward.

Business Retention and Expansion (BR&E) Visits

As JobsOhio’s Southwest Ohio partner, REDI Cincinnati leads a BR&E program in Brown, Butler, Clermont, Hamilton and Warren counties in Ohio. This partnership gives us the power to fuel expansion for fast-growing companies. We tap similar partners to equip the region’s companies with resources — from site selection and research to workforce training — for a long and comfortable stay.

REDI Cincinnati coordinates with our local economic development partners in each county, city and village to determine which companies we visit, and we invite them to join us during the BR&E visit. These partners are integral parts of our business retention program. 

SiteOhio Authenticated Sites

Launched in 2017, JobsOhio developed a new way for growing companies to find their perfect site in Ohio. As a site authentication program, SiteOhio goes beyond the usual site-certification process, putting properties through a comprehensive review and analysis. The SiteOhio seal indicates a site is ready for immediate development day one, guaranteeing that all utilities are on site with adequate capacities and that due diligence studies have been completed. The SiteOhio seal also ensures that site is free from incompatible uses, with no limitations or insurance liability based on surrounding property.
