Hi Truman,

That does look nice and it's right around the corner from the Convention Center too. Have you been here to the Innovation Center in the First Hawaiian Center (Bishop & King)? Best-kept secret downtown: HTDV companies can use the meeting areas (including the 20-foot wide high-def screen), high-def video teleconferencing, and even video editing services for FREE, since the center is supported by HTDV.

The Center is open to other folks too for negotiable fees. I’d be happy to arrange a tour, send me email: or call: 441-2661

HYBRIDOFFICE is a new coworking space in Honolulu. At $15/hour it's a nice high end place to work.

Hi guys,

Please check out the TechHui events calendar - we'll be meeting in Mililani on May 13th (Wednesday) and then at Ward Center May 14th (Thursday) for coworking this week

If those locations and times don't work for you, I'm open to other ideas too! I'll probably dump meetup soon. I was hoping to try and get people from both communities (meetup and techhui) but it appears that meetup doesn't have anyone new coming.

I shouldn't be too surprised by that though, as everyone I know who's involved in Tech is here on Tech Hui!

Contact Eva or David at; they're running a coworking space that is large and featureful, and if they have time they'll almost certainly give you some accurate numbers to use for projections, including marketing costs. I've been to a couple of events there, and will certainly attend more.

Interesting discusion on "incubator vs. coworking" going on on the coworking Google Group is a worthwhile read.

Here is a link that shows a perfect starter space for a coworking site: Showroom. Already laid out beautifully, and with 2700+ sqft of space, payment works out at about 1.87 dollars/mo/sqft. Furnishing and tech costs would surpass that for the first year or so, but I'd definitely be willing to go in hui (financial and labor) with some folks to get it up and running. The only caveat is that, no matter how financially spread-loaded, new blood and customers would need to be brought in constantly. Mass mailing and coupons wouldn't work, in this case, as an effective form of advertisement, and that's pretty much where I get hung up on the business model in this situation. How do you recruit new members to take the load off the plank owners, and what is the reasonable turnaround time?

Here is an interesting interview with Jerome Chang, founder of Blankspaces, a for-profit coworking space designed and run by an architect. Being that it was designed by an architect, it looks like a very nice and professional place to work. It would also be a great place to run an unconference. Anyone want to build one in Honolulu?
