Rockville Celebrates Economic Development Week with Business Resource and Awards Event

Apex Home Loans and Thrive Yoga receive awards

Rockville Economic Development, Inc. (REDI) and over 100 local business owners and leaders filled the Best Western Plus Rockville yesterday to network and honor standout businesses during the 3rd Annual REDI Resource Meetup (R2M). Held during Maryland’s Economic Development Week, the meetup connected businesses and resources at the local, regional and state levels.

R2M also serves as the backdrop for the “Rockin’ in Rockville” awards, which are presented to businesses that contribute significantly to the city’s civic and economic vitality.  By combining a robust community outreach program with tremendous employment and revenue growth, Apex Home Loans took home the title award. The independent and community-driven mortgage lender employs over 100 professionals and was recognized earlier this year as a top mortgage employer in the Mid-Atlantic.

New for this year, the “Rockin’ Retailer” award honors the contributions of independent retailers in creating a unique community. Entering their 13th year of business, Thrive Yoga received the award for being a staple in the area’s wellness scene with over 25,000 enthusiasts having enjoyed their “zen-like” studio, while their employees and customers volunteer together in “Adopt the Stream”, "Yoga on the Square," and food drives for Manna Food Center.

Members of REDI were joined by 11 resource partners, including Maryland Women’s Business Center, City of Rockville, Rockville Chamber of Commerce, Maryland Economic Development Association and Maryland Department of Commerce.
