Home Telecom Shines Like a Diamond with $200,000 Contribution to South Carolina Research Authority
In its most basic sense, technology uses science to solve practical problems. This is especially true when solving complications in industry and commerce, and more specifically, to help change and improve the human experience. Technology is full of potential, yet it always needing to be harnessed to be effective. No one understands this better than Home Telecom and the South Carolina Research Authority.
Home Telecom Supports South Carolina Research Authority
In other words, for technology companies like Home Telecom, developing and applying technology takes an “all hands on deck” approach. That is why our community and professional partnerships are so important.
The South Carolina Research Authority (SCRA) is working with technology companies across the state to fuel South Carolina’s innovation economy by accelerating technology-enabled growth across all areas of influence, from academics to research, entrepreneurship and industry.
For many years, Home Telecom has been a contributor to SCRA’s Industry Partnership Fund (IPF) and has been a Diamond level contributor since 2019. Contributing at this level allowed Home Telecom to name a local grant awarded to a company or researcher who is moving and shaking things up advancing high impact technology.
In addition to the contribution, Home Telecom is sponsoring an SCRA Networking Coffee event at their Applied Technologies Center in Summerville Thursday, July 14, from 8 am – 10 am.
The event is an opportunity to network with innovation ecosystem participants. In addition, SCRA will formally acknowledge Home Telecom as a Diamond partner, and the grant made by SCRA to LifeTagger, an innovation company, based in Ladson, SC, will be named for Home Telecom in recognition of their significant IPF contribution.
Since their inception in 1983, SCRA IPF contributions, like those of Home Telecom and others, have funded over $65 million in grants and investments to South Carolina-based companies. Its economic impact was $1 billion on the South Carolina economy in fiscal 2021.
In addition, SCRA Member Companies and SC Launch, Inc. Portfolio Companies have attracted over $2.2 billion in capital funding from third-party investors.
That is the kind of innovation that makes a difference for businesses, communities and to the technology industry.
That is the kind of impact that shines!
