The ultimate entrepreneurial experience and pitch competition returns to Hawaii!

Founders Live Honolulu returns!

After a few years off Founders Live is finally back in Hawaii.

Join us for an incredible evening…

Five awesome Hawaiian startups pitch. YOUR VOTES decide the winner!

Founders Live is an unforgettable happy hour competition sweeping the globe.

Five founders take the stage with only 99 seconds to pitch their company to an eager audience, followed by 4 minutes of audience Q&A.

Then the crowd votes on who will receive our winner’s package and the opportunity to talk more about their product or service.

So bring your friends and coworkers, grab some food and drink, get to know your local entrepreneurs, and vote for what you think will be the next big thing… built in Hawaii.

Founders Live is dedicated to supporting the robust startup community in the Hawaiian islands.
