NIKA and CMR Rockin’ Rockville at R2M
Maryland Economic Development Week in Rockville saw the 2nd Annual REDI Resource Meetup (R2M) event take place at the Best Western Plus Hotel & Suites.
With over 100 attendees, and 14 resource partners available to speak with business owners and others, it was a great success.
Announced at the R2M were the 2015 Rockin’ in Rockville Awards.This year, because of the diversity in applicants, REDI presented two awards.
The 2015 Rockin’ in Rockville Award went to NIKA Architects+ Engineers. By combining architecture, engineering, planning, logistics, and more under one roof, NIKA is revolutionizing how governments design, build, and manage real property. Since 2013 the company has more than doubled its employee count to reach 140, and increase its revenue by 375%.
We also presented the Rockin’ Non-Profit Award to Community Ministries of Rockville. A nonprofit meeting the needs of the community’s most vulnerable members, CMR operates programs including healthcare, financial assistance, and elderly home care. CMR staff (14 F/T and 51 P/T) are also very active in a number of local events.
