"SC Launch support was instrumental in my decision to form VidiStar in South Carolina."
Craig Walker, VidiStar Founder and CEO
Craig Walker was surprised and frustrated to discover that the fastest way to get a second opinion was to mail an ultrasound of his unborn child to a distant physician. Surely the Internet had the capability to speed the process.
That moment of frustration compelled Craig to solve the problem. The technology solution Craig created is a powerful web-based platform that enables physicians to read and interpret diagnostic studies from anywhere in the world. The ultimate results are faster, better patient diagnoses.
Craig formed VidiStar to commercialize the unique patented technology and began to consider where to base his new company. An early investment from SC Launch was the deciding factor that drew Craig and his team to South Carolina.
VidiStar has achieved great success since then, expanding the range of uses of the technology, its customer base and revenues. They moved into a newly renovated 4,000 sq. ft. facility in Greenville.
