This year, we‘re recruiting our 10th cohort at a moment when we have less than 10 years to halt the most damaging impacts of our changing planet. To meet this moment in history we’ve made some big changes to our program, including deepening our Equity & Access work and launching a brand new Global Track to fund projects anywhere in the world. We are in the final steps of our selection process, and are working to narrow down to the top 15-20 startups that will be funded for Cohort 10.
What is a Community Marketplace?
Community marketplaces are our way to incorporate community expertise into our selection process and ensure that the companies we fund are suited to meet the needs and values of the Hawaii ecosystem. We invite local community organizations and industry experts that understand our program and the needs of the community, and ask for feedback on our applicants.
