SCRA announces new members and grant funding

January 4, 2023

Secure Process Intelligence and Tandem Concepts were accepted as South Carolina Research Authority Member Companies. Real Motors and Soil Economy received new grant funding.

All SCRA Member Companies receive coaching, access to experts in SCRA’s Resource Partner Network, eligibility to apply for grant funding, and the potential to be considered for investment from SCRA’s investment affiliate, SC Launch Inc.

Real Motors Inc. received a $25,000 Project Development Fund Grant. The Greenville-based electric motorcycle manufacturer is developing an affordable, light-duty electric motorcycle targeted at urban commuting.

Secure Process Intelligence LLC was accepted as an SCRA Member Company. The Fort Mill-based information technology company provides Industry 4.0 solutions that optimize operations with a cloud dashboard.

Soil Economy LLC received a $25,000 Project Development Fund Grant. The Greenville-based startup from Bob Jones University helps carbon registries and developers standardize and improve how they measure carbon levels in the soil. Their research team provides a unified standard to verify and sell carbon credits.

Tandem Concepts Inc. was accepted as an SCRA Member Company. The Charleston-based information technology company automates supply chain operations with its services that include integrated dispatchers, credit pre-approvals, automated order entries, and instant bill reconciliation.

SCRA welcomes these new Member Companies and congratulates those that received funding.

Grant funding is made possible, in part, by the Industry Partnership Fund 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.
