Free Consulting for Hawai‘i-Based Manufacturers
The High Technology Development Corporation invites Hawai‘i-based manufacturing companies to take advantage of its new, free consulting hours through INNOVATE Hawaii on O‘ahu.
The complimentary service is now available in the Manoa Innovation Center’s Makai Room on the first Tuesday of every month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (hours are subject to change).
“The office hours allows manufacturers to work with INNOVATE Hawaii to address the critical issues they face, as well as help them through technical aspects of operating their businesses,” said Robbie Melton, executive director and CEO of HTDC. “One-on-one time with INNOVATE Hawaii staff lets manufacturers have more detailed discussions and gain greater awareness of opportunities available to them, including available grants like the Manufacturing Assistance Program.”
Participants are encouraged to reserve their time and email questions ahead of their meeting to: [email protected].
INNOVATE Hawaii helps local manufacturers become more profitable by offering assistance, grant matching and expert consulting services to create and build business in Hawaii.
The Manoa Innovation Center is located at 2800 Woodlawn Drive in Honolulu.
