Kedma is a highly intelligent, creative, energetic person who is passionate about her work. Highly recommended.
I've conducted workshops at many inventor, incubator & entrepreneur organizations over the past few years (over 1000 participants in 2009 alone). I've observed that the success of these organizations is largely dependent upon the quality and passion of their leadership. MIPO totally rocks and Kedma's leadership is clearly the primary driver of its spectacular success. Watch out world, Kedma is taking the innovation bull by the horns!
I first came to Kedma at MIPO in 2006, seeking insight into how best to take my invention to market. Through MIPO, and Kedma's tutelage, I was able to take maneuver the product through the patent phase, develop a business plan that allowed me to put together a team and raise investment capital, and finally launch our product on the market. It is fair to say that we would not have had the success we've had to date without her help. It is an understatement to say that Kedma replicates my success on a daily basis with numerous other clients as well.
Kedma is well informed and has a positive approach that makes her work seem effortless while she moves mountains and scales tall buildings. She probably isn't technically a super hero, but to me she seems smart, creative, fresh, funny and unstoppable all in the same breath. Working with Kedma is a moving, empowering experience.
