At the 2011 Hawaii Venture Capital Summit, you can have lunch with venture capital fund managers, hear about the importance of innovation in the state and talk about the successes of raising capital in Hawaii. On Oct. 4 at the Sheraton Waikiki, the summit will introduce would-be and current entrepreneurs to the ins and outs of landing venture capital for their enterprises.

According to Enterprise Honolulu’s Pono Shim, there is approximately $80 million available from Hawaii institutional investors, including: the State of Hawaii Employees’ Retirement System through their Hawaii Targeted Investment Program (HiTIP); the Hawaii Strategic Development Corporation (HSDC); and Kamehameha Schools through their Hawaii Targeted Investment Program (HTI).

The summit will highlight the investment strategies of Hawaii’s institutional investors and give entrepreneurs an opportunity to introduce themselves to fund managers.
