Regional communities like Hawaii suffer from a scarcity of follow-on funding to allow start-up companies to continue their growth. The Hawaii Venture Capital Summit is designed to educate entrepreneurs, economic development practitioners, professionals who advise businesses, and local angel investors on the best practices in approaching follow-on funding so local companies can flourish.
This conference is an educational forum, held in two parts. First, a series of mainland and local expert panelists will speak on a variety of topics related to follow-on financing. Second, there will be an opportunity for pre-selected local entrepreneurs to pitch in front of a panel of experts with the audience observing. Additional entrepreneurs will be chosen to present in private one-on-one meetings with a venture firm.
The networking session at the end of the summit will provide an opportunity for the Hawaii entrepreneurial community to get to know the mainland VCs right in their own back yard, and to showcase the diverse talent that Hawaii has to offer.
This event is hosted by High Technology Development Corporation, Enterprise Honolulu, Invencor and GKM Newport.
