Checkeeper LLC has been accepted as an SCRA Member Company and received a $50,000 Acceleration Grant.

Clear Water Care Coordination has been accepted as an SCRA Member Company and received a $25,000 Project Development Fund Grant. The Pawleys Island-based startup produced a digital health platform that fosters engagement of families and patients in the process of discharge planning. The ‘app’ has the potential to change the way the aging adult is connected to post-acute care services supporting their personal health goals.

SCRA welcomes these new Member Companies and congratulates those that received funding.
Grant funding is made possible, in part, by the Industry Partnership Fund (IPF) contributions that fuel the state’s innovation economy. Contributors to the IPF receive a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit, making it an easy and effective way to help one of the fastest growing segments of the South Carolina economy. Grant funding for Member Companies creates a direct, positive economic effect and job creation.
