Charleston, S.C. — With a recent donation, plaintiff’s law firm Yarborough Applegate is proud to continue its support of South Carolina Research Authority’s (SCRA) Industry Partnership Fund. A vital resource for South Carolina innovators, SCRA supports projects and companies across the state via impactful grants and investments. The efforts are funded in part by Industry Partnership Fund contributions such as this one.
“We sincerely appreciate Yarborough Applegate’s continued and generous support. Without the help of our industry partners, we would not be able to meet the needs of industry, startups, and academia, who are moving our state forward with innovation and higher-paying jobs,” says SCRA Executive Director Bob Quinn. “Contributions to our Industry Partnership Fund directly support grants and other SCRA services.”
According to the SCRA, the Industry Partnership Fund has been a tremendous boon to South Carolina’s “innovation economy”—the environment that encourages production of cutting-edge ideas and information. Since its creation, the fund has made a $1.15 billion impact on the state’s economy, creating some 5,600 jobs in areas of academia, entrepreneurship, and industry.
A plaintiff’s law firm serving the people of South Carolina and beyond, Yarborough Applegate has been committed to the betterment of the state for more than thirteen years. In addition to legal practice that promotes safety across industries, by supporting organizations such as SCRA, the firm continues to invest in the growth of local communities—be it through advancements in tech, social services that promote economic mobility, or ongoing support for vulnerable populations.
“SCRA has an impressive economic track record in our state, and we’re proud to continue our partnership,” says William Applegate, founding partner of Yarborough Applegate. “They make a tangible difference in the communities we—and our clients—call home.”
