Startup Crawl with the Governor of Hawaii and Steve Case

Today at the Manoa Innovation Center, Jeannette Paulson Hereniko showcased an app we developed in partnership between Asia Pacific Films and Tapiki called Hawaii Filmmakers to both Steve Case and Neil Abercrombie, the Governor of Hawaii. Abercrombie took interest in seeing the Patsy Mink film that is included as one of the 7 award winning films. See another photo here by Ricky Li.
