State of Venture Capital in Hawaii Today – April 24, 2014

Thank you all for attending our re-launch luncheon in April! We had a great showing and learned a lot from the four local ventures funds who participated.

One common theme we heard during the “State of Venture Capital in Hawaii Today” was a challenge in attracting and retaining talent in Hawaii. Our upcoming Monthly Business Forum will address this issue.

Panelists:
Arben Kryeziu – mbloom
Tim Dick – Startup Capital Ventures
Omar Sultan – Upside Fund
Karl Fooks – HSDC

Past President Bill Spencer made opening remarks. Meli James moderated the discussion.
