A motion was raised at Hawaii Techworks to rename it Hilo Nerd Club but nobody paid attention, so the motion died.

Will do.

Rod - We're actively looking for companies that would like to pitch.  The winning company will get flown to Maui to pitch at the big Mai-Tai/Maui Tech Night event to the investors there as well.

The Demo event is open to any Hawaii startup.  If you know anyone interested, have them write to and I'll take it from there.

@Don, that sounds like a nice event you have put together.  Are all the showcased companies set, or can others get in?

There's a big tech / startup event going on in Hilo May 10th.  It's the first Hawaii Island "Demo Day", a showcase of new innovative local companies.  Read about it at

Hey East Hawaii folks - the "Office Hours" 1-on-1 mentoring I've been doing with Nalukai Foundation has a new home.  I'm now holding them at the new Executive Networking Center in Hilo every Thursday from 11am - 1pm.

Topics range from web and mobile apps as businesses to funding and intellectual property/patents. Feel free to bring your own topics.

Don Kosak - Thank you for the Big Island link updates. Your Business Model Canvas Workshop sounds like it will be useful to local aspiring entrepreneurs. I hope its well attended!

It took a little longer than I anticipated to get around to it.  The video of Dr. Eric Jang is up on the West Hawaii Tech Pau Hana YouTube channel:
