Honolulu Startup Digest – January 5, 2014 Edition

January 05, 2015

Happy New Year’s!

It’s not too late to reflect on 2014 and set some new goals for 2015. Whether it be growing your business or finally starting it, keep a look out for events that could help with that goal.

Don’t forget to checkout the Startup Paradise Demo Day on Friday, January 16 from 2:30 pm to 5:30 pm. Startups from Blue Startups, Energy Excelerator, and XLR8UH will be showcased for us to see what they’ve been working on. For more information, check out Ryan Ozawa’s post on the upcoming event.

By the way, both Blue Startups are XLR8UH are accepting applications for their next cohort!

One last tidbit. If you’re interested in analysis of startup funding data from 2004-2014, pre-order the report from Mattermark for only $5! I don’t know how much it will be after pre-orders but with their previous report, full price was $100.
