January 20, 2014

Good Morning, Startup Enthusiasts!

Let 2014 be the year that you take the plunge and finally start something and check out Startup Weekend Honolulu during the weekend of Feb 7-9 to test out that idea you’ve always been dreaming about!

Please note that we’ve taken the HVCA/ThinkTech luncheon off the calendar as that has been postponed. Also, we apologize for the confusion with the VC Talk Story event. On our last digest, it stated that it was free when it should have stated the ticket prices. Sorry to all those affected!
