Did you know that UH Mānoa will be getting a new live, learn, work studio in summer 2023?
Shidler College alumni, friends and donors joined a virtual discussion on June 18 about this new project, as well as current Pacific Asian Center for Entrepreneurship (PACE) initiatives. Guest speakers Monica Umeda, co-founder of Akabotics and Susan Yamada, BBA ’82, director of UH Ventures, provided exciting updates to attendees.
This exciting project will bring entrepreneurial-minded students across Hawai‘i together under one roof. A new 18,000 sq. ft, six-story structure will be constructed adjacent to the existing Atherton YMCA. It will be open to all UH Mānoa students and the local business community and will house 373 dormitory beds, food and beverage, open lanais, coworking spaces, study rooms, conference rooms, offices and prototype labs for UH startups.
We invite you to view the slide deck from the presentation and watch the event recording to learn more.
If you're interested in supporting the project, or would like information on partnership opportunities, please contact Kristi Bates, executive director of development, at 808-956-3597.
