Kamaʻaina Sponsor – High Tech Development Corporation

Posted by on Oct 9, 2008 in Kamaʻaina Sponsors2 comments

Hawaii is blessed to be a high-tech mecca, a Silicon Valley of the Pacific. Our business environment supports and encourages technology-oriented projects in many unique ways. Similarly, PodCampHawaii embraces the business community by our "teaching them how to fish" with new social media. We are very proud to have High Tech Development Corporation join us as an Aliʻi Sponsor. Their website is full of helpful information, like Tech Jobs listings and statewide business incubation services.

HTDC provides key resources to help develop and retain high tech in Hawaii. Its core initiatives are:
  • To develop and manage a statewide network of incubation services and facilities that provide new technology businesses with access to business development services, strategic partnerships, networking and marketing opportunities, shared support services, and business mentoring.
  • To expand existing business development services for new start-ups, as well as existing businesses in the technology sector. Services include nationally-acclaimed programs such as FastTrac Entrepreneurship Training and the Manufacturing Extension Partnership Program.
  • To secure and administer federal and private grants and contracts in support of technology research and to provide technical assistance to small technology businesses so they can successfully compete for these funds and contracts.
  • To support skilled workforce development for the technology sector through outreach programs, partnerships, and web-based communications activities.

  1. Thank You HTDC! Your generous support for PodCamp Hawaii 2008 is much appreciated! It is only because of sponsors like you that PodCamp Hawaii 2008 became a successful event of contribution to our Hawaiian community. What's truly amazing is how PodCamp Hawaii 2008 also became a world wide sensation and a top ranking conversation throughout the vastness of the internet. Thank you! Mahalo, Arleen Anderson
  2. Mahalo nui loa for making it possible for a cash-strapped laid-off journalist to attend Podcamp/Wordcamp and learn some important new skills to help make me relevant in the coming years. :) N
