Aloha! Founder Institute Launches Chapter in Honolulu, Hawaii

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-05-08

Today we are excited to announce our newest location - Honolulu, Hawaii! 

The Honolulu chapter is just around the corner, as the 4-month program is slated to start on July 17th. The program is open to existing and prospective technology founders of all kinds - with or without an idea, young or old, and with a full-time job or unemployed.

If you or someone you know could benefit from expert training and feedback to launch a technology startup in Honolulu, click here to apply. If you apply by the Early Application Deadline on Sunday, June 2nd, you get to take the Predictive Admissions Test for free (typically $50), and have the opportunity to receive a discounted Early-Bird course fee as well.

If you would like to learn more, then join a free event we will be hosting in the coming weeks:

The Founder Institute is a part-time, four month training program where aspiring entrepreneurs can launch a company with expert feedback and support from experienced startup CEOs, while not being required to quit their day job. The program aims to launch over 20 meaningful and enduring technology companies per year in Hawaii, and fill the gap between idea formation and starting a company that first-time technology founders currently can experience in Hawaii.

“While it took a little longer than we expected, we were able to garner a large amount of demand for a Honolulu Founder Institute Chapter,” says Adeo Ressi, Founder & CEO of the Founder Institute. “ZenBanx and the Better Business Bureau  have been very supportive, and I believe that our program will help build a more vibrant ecosystem where local entrepreneurs and mentors can work together to develop great ideas and launch meaningful companies.”

The Honolulu Founder Institute will be led by Russel Cheng and Brent Kakesako. Russel is the Founder of StartupHui, the Interim-COO at NoJuice, and has founded six companies (with two successful exits). Brent is COO of the Hawaii Alliance for Community-Based Economic Development (HACBED), and is a Co-Founder of Cultivating Collaboration & Collective Change organizations. Both Co-Directors currently serve as volunteer entrepreneurs in residence at the local universities and at Punahou School. 

Expected mentors of the Honolulu program include;

  • Adeo Ressi, Founder & CEO of the Founder Institute
  • Bob Nakata, CEO of Oahu Group
  • Donavan Kealoha, Co-Founder & CEO of Asio Corporation
  • Matt Mandell, Serial Entrepreneur
  • Roger Yee, Investor at Fortify Ventures
  • and many more to be announced
