Description

JOIN THE #ONOREVOLUTION

Good things happen when we collectively gather to EAT THINK DRINK! We learn, share and are inspired by the many thoughtful conversations that happen over the dining table. The Hawaii Agricultural Foundation (HAF) invites the public to EAT THINK DRINK presented by Hawaiian Airlines, a quarterly series created to bring diverse communities together and find common ground on issues of agriculture and food in our state.


ABOUT SHOW ME THE GREEN

What does it take to turn small-scale, innovative food technology into a viable, profitable business model? Incubators and startup accelerators continue to seek out new food innovators who can foster development and create capital in a demand-driven industry.

Join five inspiring industry leaders and six of Honolulu's top chefs as they showcase their experience, expertise and knowledge on discovering and investing in the next big "Made in Hawaii" item. EAT THINK DRINK: Show Me the Green will address questions frequently asked by local entrepreneurs, including, "What does the venture capital landscape look like and what exactly are these investors focusing on when seeking out new potential? How do successful, innovative products measure up, disrupt the market and attract funders for continued economic growth?"

The event will be moderated by Meli James of Hawaii Venture Capital Association (HVCA) and kicked off with a thought-provoking presentation led by Keynote Speaker Lou Cooperhouse, a globally-renowned leader in food business innovation, incubation, acceleration and industry cluster formation. Afterward, a panel of industry experts will then guide an important discussion on food innovation and what makes a value-added product investment-worthy. Panelists include Kyle Datta of Ulupono Initiative, Greg Leong of Arocrest Company and Nancy Enos of Foodland Super Market.

Continued fellowship and networking will then take place over an interactive dine-around featuring six of Honolulu's hottest chefs and notable tastemakers, including Keaka Lee of The Pig & The Lady, Jason Schoonover of 12th Ave Grill, Kevin Lee of PAI Honolulu, Keith Pajinag of Ravish Honolulu, Michelle Karr-Ueoka of MW Restaurant and Lyndsey Simone of Roy’s Hawaii Kai. Guests will have the opportunity to experience captivating dishes that have been carefully curated by each chef inspired by the disruptive food innovation marketplace. Hand-crafted cocktails, beverages and craft beer will also be provided by Southern Glazer's Wine and Spirits.

EAT THINK DRINK is presented by Hawaiian Airlines and supported by Alexander and Baldwin, Fiji Water, Hawaiʻi Crop Improvement Association, Kamehameha Schools, Lendlease, State of Hawaii, Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits, Tossware and Ulupono Initiative.
