Organizer

BoxJelly, Abilities Unlimited and Blue Planet Foundation

BoxJelly is Hawaii's first and largest cowork space located in Honolulu, Hawaii. It is arranged to gather the spirit of independent, mobile, entrepreneurs into a professional yet cohesive space. We are here to disrupt and breakdown the cubical walls. Work the way you live.

Abilities Unlimited is a local nonprofit organization that focuses on providing community-based support for individuals with disabilities.  By providing direct service and macro-level advocacy efforts to the community, the organization serves as a catalyst for positive social change to build communities that welcome individuals with disabilities and empower these individuals to participate in dignified opportunities in all sectors of community life. 

Blue Planet Foundation is a local nonprofit organization committed to ending the use of fossil fuels on Earth, starting in Hawaii. We can eliminate Hawaii's dependency on imported oil by switching to local, clean, renewable sources of energy. The result? Energy security, economic growth, job creation, environmental protection, and a better quality of life for Hawai‘i residents.  Through educational outreach, advancing sound policy, and developing programs that connect island communities with effective solutions, Blue Planet Foundation is fostering Hawai‘i’s clean energy future.
