Email Industries Receives SC Launch Acceleration Grant

Email Industries is proud to announce it has received a $50,000 Acceleration Grant from SCRA’s entrepreneurial program, SC Launch.

On a mission to be the worldwide leader in email deliverability, Email industries has created tools that help marketing technology providers, agencies, and brands deliver more value to more inboxes with less risk.

Since 2012, BlackBox, an email marketing compliance tool, is being used by companies like Mailchimp and Oracle to preemptively identify hidden threats in their customer’s email lists. While, AlfredKnows, a whitehat email list hygiene and enrichment service, is currently in closed beta.

Email Industries will use the grant to develop technologies that will make AlfredKnows more accessible to more partners and end-users.

“We are thrilled about the growth that this grant made by SC Launch will enable,” said Scott Hardigree, CEO of Email Industries. “We are proud to grow our partnership with SCRA and demonstrate what technology companies like our can achieve right here in South Carolina.”
