CHANDLER, Ariz., Dec. 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kadima.Ventures, a transformative collaboration of companies that offers resources to early-stage startups and legacy companies to evolve ideas into advanced technologies, is hosting its inaugural Innovation Fair 2018 on January 30, 2018, at WestWorld in Scottsdale, Arizona. Inspired by the World’s Fair, Kadima is bringing together elite investors, startups, major corporate sponsors, incubators, economic development organizations, and civic groups from around the world to build innovation synergy and engage in a totally new way. 

As an exclusive, invite-only event, Innovation Fair 2018 will provide the most transformational technology startups in the world the opportunity to network and engage with hand-picked investors and companies focused on driving innovation.  During the event, Kadima will be deploying a revolutionary new market technology that provides access to those vital partnerships for the startups, while transparently reducing risk and elevating the reward for the investors.

Attendees of the fair will also benefit from learning sessions, labeled IDEA Labs, which provide education on emerging technologies like blockchain, Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), and autonomous systems delivered by industry thought leaders and nationally-recognized speakers.

Kadima is also bringing innovation to invitations. Their exclusive invites to the fair are in the form of unique Kadima Invite Coins. These coins symbolize membership and encourage alliances, which Kadima believes in very deeply. Historically, members of the military have earned Challenge Coins to distinguish themselves amongst their peers for their achievements, allegiance, and willingness to meet any challenge. Offering an invitation coin is the company’s way of recognizing individuals and their organization for such accomplishments.

Tim Wales, Kadima’s co-founder and CEO, is a U.S. Marine veteran, technologist, and serial entrepreneur who understands the challenges faced by emerging companies and is committed to delivering the results they need. On his inspiration for the Innovation Fair, Wales had this to say,

“It’s a sobering statistic that, despite their best efforts, 90 percent of early-stage startups fail, and less than one percent actually have a successful exit. Understanding the secrets of that coveted one percent can make all the difference in mitigating risk and executing lucrative investments in stand-out, emerging companies. We have spent years developing a model for offering a sustained support system to early-stage startups to take them to the next level. Our Innovation Fair will demonstrate first-hand how that proven model will leverage blockchain technology to facilitate and streamline funding options and a successful ICO.”
