Someone who consistently contributes to the successes of Hawaii’s startup community.

WINNER

Jarrett Keohokalole
State representative
House District 48

“This is the industry that young people want to work in. So I got involved. I reached out to different agencies in the startup community and really tried to introduce myself, to hear what they’re saying, and to advocate for them on behalf of the Capitol.”
