Last week SV In.Fusion was a sponsor of the East Meets West Conference in Honolulu, Hawaii that was hosted by our friends at Blue Startups a local technology accelerator founded by Henk Rogers, the man that brought Tetris Game to the world! Continuing our practice of reaching out to entrepreneurs outside of Silicon Valley, we were please to be able to participate in this cross-cultural event that targeted Asian, US, and Hawaiian participants.
The conference brought speakers and attendees from around the Pacific region, including Ben Levy, co-founder of BootstrapLabs, our parent company. Ben participated in a panel discussion titled “Cross-border Investing – Opportunity or Headache?” and was also a judge for the “East/West Startup Pitches”, where thirteen startups presented their teams, products and traction, competing for cash prizes and the opportunity to attend an SV In.Fusion Startup Bootcamp.
