“Our company has been involved in every Startup Weekend in Hawai‘i since the beginning, because we think it’s a great entry point for local entrepreneurs trying to get a flavor as to what it takes to create a business,” Omar was quoted as saying in a Maui News article covering the event.
Sultan Ventures is proud to have supported every Startup Weekend event throughout Hawaii. In addition to sponsorships, we’ve served as mentors, judges, and even conducted and hosted startup bootcamps. With over a dozen Startup Weekends across Hawaii in total, including ones on Oahu, Maui, and even the University of Hawaii, it’s something we are proud of and don’t anticipate changing any time soon.
We look forward to the continued success and growth of Startup Weekend and more events like it.
