His commercial innovations include both business operational innovations in quality control and manufacturing; and technology innovations in multi-protocol connectivity, USB connectivity, IoT and sensor products, medical device products, and medical device to EHR connectivity.

Prior to founding Clairvoyant Networks, Popovich, a serial entrepreneur, co-founded and was CEO of Inside Out Networks™ of Austin, Texas. His company, founded in 1997, established him as a pioneer and leader in mission critical connectivity technologies with his products used in medical, military, and other critical commercial applications.
He successfully sold the Inside Out Networks to Digi International in October, 2000 and became responsible for Business Development for Digi's enterprise applications involving Machine To Machine (M2M) connectivity and Internet of Things (IoT) cloud based applications called The Social Machine.
In 2015, a family member of Steve's was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Naturally, he looked for the enabling technology for Alzheimer's caregiving. What was available was point solutions that solved one aspect of the problem, but were not interconnected or interoperable, and very difficult for family caregivers to use. Because of the lack of useful technology for caregivers that leverages the latest in technology advancements, he left Digi to found Clairvoyant Networks LLC to improve the lives of those aging in place, in independent living, and seniors with memory care needs, and those who care for them. Particular consideration and focus is placed on their loved ones and professional care providers by implementing simple to use, cost effective, IoT based solutions and services. These solutions include sensors, wearables communication hardware, cloud connectivity, streamlining analytics, and natural language programmed systems. These solutions support a continuum of care with scalable, easy to use and affordable technology that can be used in any living situation from in-home to senior communities to SNF and hospitals.
