RMS provides issue monitoring, government relations and business development support to lean and growth-stage organizations. “Many of our clients don’t yet have or have very small government affairs teams covering huge territories. Technology companies are seeing themselves impacted by the proliferation of state and local legislation popping up around the country, and the volume of these bills is increasing. All businesses have a vested interest in understanding and helping shape policies and regulations that directly impact their operations and future growth, such as privacy, AI, and workforce development. Engaging a firm like ours early helps leaders stay abreast of key issues and empowers them to build critical relationships that will serve them long term,” said Heather Stewart, Managing Director at Red Maple Strategies.

RMS is headquartered in Austin, Texas and serves innovative companies with state and local policy, regulatory, and business development interests across the United States.
