Business Pitch Event Serves Up ‘Chopsticks and Optics’
The first “Pupus & Pitches” event of the year is coming up on Tuesday. And if the combination of food and startup talk isn’t irresistible enough, the theme of the evening is “Chopsticks and Optics.”
Hosted by the Entrepreneurs Foundation of Hawaii at ProtoHUB Honolulu, the event will feature our local companies. They will pitch theirÂ businesses plans to seasoned venture investors, get feedback and pitching tips, and answer questions from the audience.Â An audience whose minds and bellies will be well fed.
The four featured companies are:
- Street Grindz: Organizers of the extremely successful “Eat the Street” series of food truck festivals since 2011, workingÂ toÂ create a platform for Hawaiiâ€™sÂ mobile food industry.
- Mao Organic Farms:Â AÂ Hawaiian social enterprise that growsÂ organic food as well asÂ young leaders who are working towardÂ a sustainable Hawaii.
- FlyWire: DevelopingÂ the worldâ€™s smallest, most flexible, high-definitionÂ wearable camera. Featured on this blog back in January.
- MorphOptics:Â MergingÂ highly parallel information technology with imagingÂ science to develop high-quality, low-mass optical lenses for specialized applications.
