The event is a platform where disruptive Start-ups gather to present their innovative products and services on a truly global stage.

The discussions gave a unique insight to the present and future climate that ‘Early” stage firms might be confronted with. These included many discussions from Building Global companies all the way to the “Do’s and Don’ts” with the interaction of Government agencies. The event was highlighted by providing a platform for 84 young companies, from many countries, to have an opportunity to be in front of interested funding partners.

Grace Century Members Jennifer Doyle, Vice President of Administration and CEO, Scott Wolf attended. Wolf comments “I was thoroughly impressed with the innovations brought to the competition, especially the high concentration of companies from the Emirates. It is a testament to how the country has provided a nurturing infrastructure and why it is home to some many “incubators””.

Presenting to the groups were Start-ups and early stage firms coming from Food & Beverage, Agriculture, Renewable Energy, Healthcare, and Education.

Scott Wolf concludes “Expos like this are not only invaluable to see possible “project flow” for our firm, but to keep on finger on the rapidly changing landscape in this stage of firms and the changing technologies. The fact that it was in our “backyard” of Dubai was an added benefit”.

This 13th patent was permanently recorded on December 27, 2016, as United States Patent #9,532,295. The patent, originally filed on August 23, 2013, bears the title “Predictive path communication protocol across a network of transiently connected mobile devices”.

One of the great benefits of PWeR is that it can collect and assemble all of an individual’s medical information from any point on the planet, and then store that data centrally, securely in one place, or online. Similarly, PWeR can then use the Internet to project it to any point on earth, on demand, as required, and in a secure manner. PWeR is capable of this, but in some places, communication of such large amounts of data is impractical and/or expensive. Predictive Path Protocol is a communication technique designed to resolve that limitation, inexpensively, at any remote point.
