Global happiness through solving issues in Hawaii, An announcement of “Island Innovation Demo Day”
Leave a Nest Co., Ltd. and MajiConnection LLC together solve the social problems unique to Hawaii to hold “Island Innovation Demo Day” on Tuesday, April 16, as a place for investors to meet. This is the first attempt to connect a Hawaii startup to Japanese companies.
Hawaii, which is famous as one of the world's leading resorts, is rich in nature and tourism but has various issues such as water pollution and dependence on fossil fuels. One of the major issues, the issue of marine debris drifting from other countries is particularly concerning. Furthermore many plastics are drifting to Hawaii due to the tsunami disaster that hit Japan in the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011.
For these reasons, we focused on Hawaii and decided to hold the “Island Innovation Demo Day” to find a way to solve issues unique to Hawaii with Hawaii startups by providing Japanese technologies and industries. By collaborating together, Hawaii and Japan, we have the potential to solve the problems of Hawaii and the islands of the world. Together with a passionate startup that wants to solve Hawaii's challenges, Leave a Nest aims to create a new innovation ecosystem.
