What: Launch Day

When: Saturday, May 28th from 8:20AM to 2:30PM

Where: Kamakakūokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa

If the ideas behind the Purple Prize speak to you, come check out LAUNCH DAY, when we’ll get to know each other, spend some time in the loʻi, hear from some thought leaders on how technology can serve aloha ʻāina, and have lots of time for breakout sessions, networking, and conversation.

You don’t have to have a brilliant idea, plan, or already-formed team to participate. (But if you have those, bring them!) It’s also ok if you know tech but not culture, or culture but not tech. Just come with an open mind and a willingness to learn!
