RED HERRING REVEALS COMPANIES SELECTED FOR THE RED HERRING NORTH AMERICA 100 2008
Award Recognizes the 100 “Most Promising” Companies Driving the Future of Technology

San Francisco, CA, April 7, 2008 – Red Herring today announced that Knowledge Adventure was a finalist for the Red Herring 100 Award, a selection of the 100 most innovative private technology companies based in North America.

The Red Herring editorial board diligently surveyed the entrepreneurial scene throughout the North American region and identified the top 200 out of more than 800 closely evaluated companies that are leading the next wave of innovation.

“We can see the exciting evolution of the technology sector reflected in the quality and variety of exceptional companies that we had to choose from in putting our list together," said Joel Dreyfuss, editor-in-chief of Red Herring." It was tough to choose just 200 finalists from such a large list of excellent contenders, and we are very happy with the quality of the companies we selected as finalists."

“Being named a finalist for such a prestigious award is truly an honor for our company,” said David Lord, President & CEO Knowledge Adventure. “It’s great to be acknowledged as a leader for our innovative and world-renowned products by such a well respected and influential publication.”

The 100 winning companies will be announced at the Red Herring North America event. The CEOs of the winning startups will present their innovative ideas and technologies to an audience of leading entrepreneurs, financiers, and corporate strategists at the event in San Jose, California, on May 12-14 at the Fairmont. This year’s Red Herring 100 North America event marks the 11th anniversary of the Red Herring 100 Awards. In celebration, the event will feature keynote addresses from legendary VC investors and CEOs of leading Internet, information, and communications companies.
