Hawaii Foundation Launches Entrepreneur Program for Minority Women & Moms

Purple Maiʻa Foundation (PMF) has successfully run several statewide entrepreneurship and innovation programs that have empowered local, underserved, Native Hawaiian founders to generate over 50 new ideas and a dozen companies.

Its founders and staff have also been directly involved with most of the recent Hawaii-based companies that have gone on to participate in other local accelerator programs.

The foundation has recently established Hawai’i FoundHer, a six-month pilot accelerator program that begins in September 2021 with a specific focus on the needs of Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander, and/or Asian women and mothers starting businesses in five core markets of Hawaii’s economy: Tech, Fashion, Health and Wellness, Food System/Restaurants, and Keiki/Education.
