How Do We Best Support an Innovation Economy?

Aloha TechHui Members:

So far we have had 30 responses to the survey, which indicates considerable interest in this issue but is far short of representative of TechHui's 1300 members. If you have not done so yet, please take a few moments to fill out the TechHui survey today. We would like to report the results of the survey in a tech community meeting on 2010 Legislative initiatives next week.

1. Allow Act 221 to sunset, and implement the Act 215 State Private Investment Fund (SPIF) to be funded with up to $38 million in state tax credits that can be used to guarantee secured interest-bearing notes issued to lenders.



2. Have the… Continue
