About this event

Creators of Makers & Tasters, Street Grindz, Eat The Street, and Honolulu Night Market, Poni and Brandon Askew are a husband and wife team that has created platforms supporting hundreds of entrepreneurs in Hawaii. They are the ultimate champions of Honolulu's local economy, working to help small independent businesses succeed and to keep creative, entrepreneurial jobs and dollars in the Aloha State. 

"We believe that passionate, local entrepreneurs are the key to creating a sustainable future. Getting there takes ingenuity, hard work, and risk-taking. Our mission is to do everything we can to help them succeed. Hawaii was once a model of abundance. Its lands and oceans were full of all that anyone could ever want or need. We are passionate about building systems of abundance, starting right here in Hawaii where our ancestors perfected it."

Join us to hear them discuss what they learned from starting multiple companies, helping grow the local economy, and pushing forward in the face of personal hardships.
