Kamaʻaina Sponsor – High Tech Development CorporationPosted by judi on Oct 9, 2008 in Kamaʻaina Sponsors • 2 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.
