Young Presidents’ Organization Hawaii Awards $5,000 To Business Plan Competition Winners

Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO) Hawaii announced $5,000 in awards to three Hawaii higher education institutions that participated in a business plan competition, namely University of Hawaii (UH), Hawaii Pacific University (HPU) and Chaminade University (CU).  Winners were University of Hawaii, taking first place, followed by Chaminade and HPU taking second and third places respectively. 

Teams from each institution presented their business ideas to a panel of YPO Hawaii members moderated by Janet Liang, former President of Kaiser Permanente Hawaii and Event Chair.  The format was inspired by the popular reality show “Shark Tank” on ABC network where entrepreneurs pitch ideas to potential investors. "It is important to encourage and support a new generation of entrepreneurs in Hawaii," said Liang.”  Beyond a monetary award, each student team received valuable advice and had access to potential investors".

Hawaii teen heads to California, battles rare disease
 By: Taylor Preza  It’s a disease that impacts less than one in 100,000 people a year, and it is impacting one young woman right here in Hawaii. On July 16, 18-year-old Taylor Ann Hiraki was diagnosed with Moyamoya, a rare and progressive brain disease greatly characterized by strokes caused by blocked arteries at the base of the brain. It all started when Taylor had returned home to Honolulu, Hawaii for the summer after completing her first year of college at Pacific University in Oregon.  She was working her seasonal job at Maile’s Thai Bistro in Hawaii Kai moments before a series of mini-strokes started to occur.  A family friend just so happened to be dining at the restaurant while Taylor was working.
