The State Controlling Board today approved a $50,000 Rapid Outreach Grant for HealthSpot, Inc. The grant, administered by the Ohio Department of Development, is expected to help create 60 jobs, leveraging more than $1.7 million in additional investment in the state.
HealthSpot, Inc. is located in the City of Dublin (Franklin County) and assists healthcare providers in extending their reach to retailers, employers, nursing homes, community centers, and other outlets to better keep their customers informed. The company has created a patent-protected healthcare station that enables customers to stay in contact more frequently with locally and nationally recognized healthcare providers for healthcare information and updates. In addition to the acquisition of new servers and related equipment, the company will locate its research and development facility, as well as its headquarters in the City of Dublin.
The Rapid Outreach Grant is a grant program to assist companies and communities that are creating or retaining jobs in Ohio.
Working with our partners across business, state and local governments, academia, and the nonprofit sector, the Ohio Department of Development works to attract, create, grow, and retain businesses through competitive incentives and targeted investments. Engaged every day in marketing, innovating, investing, and collaborating, the Ohio Department of Development works at the speed of business to accelerate and support the teamwork that is necessary for success by providing financial, informational, and technical assistance to those making an investment in Ohio's future.
