Hear from the companies in our region.

"As we continue to expand our footprint in the Tri-state, on both sides of the river, we hope to become a model for other companies. Our region is incredibly rich in talent – capable, educated professionals who save lives every day – skills we saw proven time and again throughout the fight against COVID-19. We hope our continued success here encourages others to consider bringing jobs to the region. Thank you to JobsOhio, REDI Cincinnati, the State of Ohio, the City of Cincinnati, Corporex, Gravity Diagnostic, and countless other companies who have helped us get to this point."

Local connections have also played a major role in our ability to grow. Cincinnati Children’s, BioOhio, CincyTech, my former company AtriCure, Ken Parker, and Techway Industries of Franklin have also been invaluable resources in getting the business off the ground. They provided funding, cleanrooms, lab space, office space, and component parts. As well, connections with board members were vital. We are also grateful for the co-op programs at the University of Dayton and the University of Cincinnati.”

“People see this as a vibrant business community, which REDI has supported through their efforts. We are proud to invest in their organization, which continues to contribute to growth opportunities for our region.”
