As Hawai’i’s Entrepreneurship Center, XLR8HI provides educational resources and events to nurture and grow the Startup Paradise ecosystem. Our interactive classes and events are open to anyone who wants to learn the essentials of entrepreneurship and unlock the innovation mindset in an inclusive and fun environment. Members can register for these events at special member rates. 

Talk Story

Talk Story sessions connect thought leaders and business experts with Hawaii’s innovation community. Talk Story features local investors, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders and topics include entrepreneurship, innovation, art, and investing. These sessions typically start with a few guided questions, and then become free-flowing with audience members asking questions.

Classes and Workshops

Classes and workshops are led by founders, investors, and industry leaders who share their expert strategies and best practices so you can take your idea or business to the next level. Our instructors share insights and first-hand knowledge that can’t simply be found through a Google search, and you’ll leave with actionable takeaways. Classes and workshops are usually offered as part of a series on a single topic. You can sign up for one, two, or all the classes in a series, depending on what you want to learn. 

Speaker Series 

The speaker series features local, mainland, and international innovation thought leaders. These events are hosted at various locations to showcase Oahu’s innovation ecosystem. 

Although our events are hosted on Oahu (for now), our neighbor island members can participate via livestream and our video conferencing system. 

In addition to innovators and entrepreneurs, the XLR8HI ‘ohana includes startup veterans, investors, and industry leaders. As a member, you’ll get connected to experts who will provide advice and mentorship to help you achieve your goals.

Whether you are hosting your next board meeting, a meetup, or just need a space to send emails, XLR8HI is equipped to support you with working and meeting spaces. 

Working space

Each membership comes with Day Passes to access XLR8HI open office space where you can work from standing desks or communal tables. We make sure you and your devices stay charged with by providing power outlets and coffee. 

Meeting space

Paddle and Surf members receive monthly credits that can be used towards booking private offices and the XLR8HI conference room. Paddle and Surf members can reserve additional space at a special member rate.  

In addition to the awesome views of downtown Honolulu and Aloha Tower, XLR8HI has the equipment you need to take your next idea from concept to prototype. Additionally, members can access perks and deals on business support services that have traditionally only been available through investment programs and accelerators.
