Honolulu Startup Digest – December 1, 2014 Edition

December 01, 2014

Good Morning!

We hope your Thanksgiving weekend was filled with lots of turkey and a head start to your Christmas shopping! This means there’s not a lot of time left this year so let’s make it count and jam out the rest of the year.

We also wanted to apologize for not having a mid-November digest as there was a communication mixup around then.

There’s been a  lot of interesting developments since then and here are some articles to catch you up on our startup scene!
