STEPPING DOWN Former Gov. George Ariyoshi plans to resign from his position as chair of the Pacific International Space Center for Exploration Systems, and intends to suggest to the board that entrepreneur Vice Chair Henk Rogers succeed him. “I told the board members that I am 87 years old and I feel very strongly I don’t want to have somebody come in and take over,” he said. “I felt it was appropriate for me to step down now while I am still able to and have a person that can take over. I indicated to them that Henk should be a person who can do this because of his reputation, his knowledge of the aerospace industry and because of how people in the community have gotten to respect him as an individual.” Ariyoshi let me know about his plans to resign during a meeting at his office on the 23rd floor of the First Hawaiian Bank building in Downtown Honolulu. He told me that he would like to take Rogers’ position of vice chair of the board. Ariyoshi is expecting these changes to take place at the next PISCES board meeting.

BY THE NUMBERS The Cruise Lines International Association commissioned an independent study about the cruise industry in 2012, and here is what we learned:

SHE SAID IT

“I’m kind of semi-retired, but I am getting back into it a little bit, starting with a new fabric I’ve been searching for and finally found, way off in Asia.” Hawaii fashion designer Mamo Howell, 84, on reentering the industry

What type of influence does Henk Rogers have that can have a positive impact on the future of Hawaii business? I think that Henk has been great for Hawaii in several ways. One is that he’s been able to run a very successful global business from Hawaii. Most people that we meet from the Mainland, and who maybe come through here and visit us here, are shocked to learn the entire Tetris franchise is run out of Honolulu. It’s kind of a secret, and nobody really knows that is going on. What’s fantastic about that is, he proves it is possible to run a successful global company from Honolulu. I think that’s a really important aspect Henk brings, being a role model for how that can get done. I think that’s one important contribution.

One group of companies has now completed the Blue Startups program. What are your thoughts on how it went? What kinds of changes, if any, do you plan to make to the program? We think, in general, it went really

What are you looking for in the second cohort of businesses that will participate in Blue Startups? We’re really looking for entrepreneurs who can be competitive on a global stage. Their concepts and their teams are at that level of competitiveness, extremely motivated, extremely well experienced for what they’re trying to accomplish. We really want to continue to be able to stack our teams up against those coming out of the best accelerators in the world, and have them really stand that test.

well. All of the feedback we got both from the teams and from folks that attended our demo day was very positive. Folks outside our ecosystem, and outside Hawaii, were blown away that we had accomplished what we had in such a short period of time. The challenge for us is going to be to repeat that success, so there’s a lot of, I think, pressure about that right now. I think for the next go around, we won’t change very much. We really like pretty much the way that we did things and really have the same goals in mind, which are to have a class that is part Hawaii companies, and part Mainland companies, that we really bring them through an entire process of working through the lean startup methodology.

Chenoa Farnsworth is managing director of Blue Startups, the Honolulu-based technology accelerator founded by Henk Rogers. I talked with her about Rogers and the Blue Startups program, which is accepting applications until July 31 for its second round of compaFarnsworth nies to participate in the program.

CPB’S FOUR-LEGGED MARKETING STRATEGY

THREE QUESTIONS FOR CHRISTINE SAKUDA BY THE NUMBERS The Hawaii Health Information Exchange recently conducted a survey of 600 randomly selected participants to gather the community’s opinions on electronic health records. The survey found that:

CATHOLIC CHARITIES HAWAII LAUNCHES $6.3M CAMPAIGN

67% Supported the concept of electronic health records

42% Said they are concerned about security, privacy and availability with electronic health records

JENNA BLAKELY

Christine Sakuda, left, with Holly Iwasaki, communication and outreach specialist, is executive director of the nonprofit Hawaii Health Information Exchange, which has two main programs: the Hawaii Pacific Regional Extension Center, which assists providers in switching from paper charts to electronic medical records, and the Health eNet, an online health exchange that rolled out last year to boost collaboration among providers about patient medical information. The nonprofit has approximately 700 providers participating in its Hawaii Pacific Regional Extension program, and about 500 use the online health exchange. The exchange is working to boost participation levels among the 4,000 licensed health-care providers in the state.

Where do you see Hawaii’s health-care system in 10 years? Health-care transformation is an evolving process, and the delivery models are evolving. I do see health-care providers being connected with each other regardless of what system they are using. It has been a tough road, and (electronic health records) is not a requirement, which means we have to get people to opt in. With the other changes, such

as pay for quality, implementing disease registry programs, the demands are high on providers, and so we do compete as a priority. But there is a growing demand for the health information exchange system.

What are the biggest challenges right now in implementing electronic health records? There are 30 different electronic health record systems across the state — how do all of those talk to each other? I think the reason there are so many is because of our fragmented health-care system, but the demands placed to meet standards as a vendor are getting higher and I think the stronger ones will survive, which is a good thing. Sometimes there is an adoption curve, but once providers go through that, they find it hard to go back (to paper charts). Most people support EHR, but privacy is a concern. People want to know where is the information going, and they have real concerns.

What keeps you up at night? How do we continue to provide the service that we do to our stakeholders in an evolving industry?

Continuing its fast growth since opening in 2006, Aloha Salads plans to open two new stores by the end of this year, bringing its total to six. It plans to open its next store at Pearlridge in August, and it is eyeing a location in the Gateway at Mililani Mauka Shopping Center that could open by December or January 2014. When husband-and-wife owners Chris and Sara Lufrano originally opened Aloha Salads in Kailua, they weren’t sure how the community would respond. But the lawyers turned entrepreneurs saw business take off from the start. “Making salads is much more fun than being a lawyer,” Sara Lufrano laughed. “We decided to try this, and luckily it worked.” They are both from Hawaii, but their inspiration for the menu began while they were away studying in Chicago. “We put everything together of the things we missed from Hawaii while we were gone,” Sara said. “We were so happy to come home.” They plan to expand their 400-square-foot Kailua Shopping Center location as well.

Catholic Charities Hawaii is launching a three-year, $6.3 million campaign today to support three areas that will enable it to better serve those in need. The Futures Campaign: Building a Bridge to Tomorrow follows a series of community focus groups that helped to identify a new strategic vision for the 66-year-old nonprofit organization. The vision and campaign focus on improving the areas of accessibility, prevention and innovation. “We need to be more accessible to the people we serve,” President and CEO Jerry Rauckhorst said of the first area. “It’s not about building more facilities, but finding more opportunities to serve more people.” The plan is to establish service centers in targeted underserved areas, giving clients better access to some of the 30 social service programs that Catholic Charities Hawaii offers statewide. West Oahu and the Big Island are among the target areas. Focusing on prevention involves launching new programs that are more proactive for those in need. It specifically focuses on starting preventative care programs for Hawaii’s rapidly growing elderly population, recognizing the growing need to provide resources that allow seniors to live independently. The third area, innovation, seeks to improve the organization from within by upgrading technology infrastructure so employees can work more efficiently and serve more people per day.

PHOTO COURTESY CENTRAL PACIFIC BANK

Wayne Kirihara, chief marketing officer of Central Pacific Bank, filled me in on the strategy behind using as its mascot Alex, the well-trained canine that has become the face of the bank’s ads. Alex was hired in 2002 as loyalty officer with the duty to inspire employees to be loyal to customers. He retired in 2008 due to a change in the bank’s marketing direction, but his brand impression was hard to ignore, and he’s been back at work since 2011. “As a smaller bank in Hawaii, we believe that a strong icon can leverage our limited marketing resources to strengthen our brand identity,” Kirihara said. “During his three-year absence, Alex continued to show up in our surveys as ‘one of things you think about when CPB is mentioned,’ which was a surprising indication of the strong brand equity that Alex had established.” Some customers have even said that they opened accounts with CPB because of Alex. “However, I tend to believe that they felt we offered a value proposition and that Alex simply kept that proposition top of mind,” Kirihara said. There are no plans to retire Alex at this time. In fact, he has been busy making public appearances where people can pose for pictures with him. “He typically has one of the longest lines at trade shows,” Kirihara said. “He has more patience and discipline than most people I know, whether it’s working the photo booth or taping a TV commercial. He seems to know that he is working, as well as when he is on break, and he is amazingly dedicated to his assignments. He’s a true professional and a pleasure to work with. It’s a little scary, but I see Alex more as a person than a dog.” Currently, the dog behind the fame is a seven-year-old Shetland sheepdog, and he is the bank’s second Alex. He’s employed, but not owned, by the bank; Kirihara declined to disclose the dog’s trainer.

DUANE SHIMOGAWA COVERING ENERGY, REAL ESTATE, LEGAL, TECHNOLOGY

AIRING IT OUT OVER THE PRO BOWL Bobby Curran, sports commentator on ESPN 1420 radio, moderates a panel discussion of Hawaii’s future with the Pro Bowl. Panelists, from left, are David Uchiyama, Hawaii Tourism Authority vice president for brand management; Frank Vuono, former NFL executive; and Olin Kreutz, former Pro Bowl center with the Chicago Bears.

OCEANIT FOUNDER LEAVES HONORARY CONSUL POST Who: Patrick Sullivan, founder and chairman of Honolulubased engineering firm Oceanit Sullivan What: Leaving post as Hawaii’s honorary consul of Indonesia after 12 years in that position Why: Sullivan says he feels it’s time to move on and let someone else take over — also, he has other time commitments. During his tenure: The state has seen several significant developments with Indonesia, including cooperative military training with the Hawaii National Guard.

ALA MOANA CENTER GETS HAWAII’S FIRST CAROLINA HERRERA STORE

TINA YUEN

The state is looking for a long-term commitment from the National Football League to keep the Pro Bowl in Hawaii beyond 2014. The NFL is seeking flexibility as well as ways to improve the overall experience for both fans and players. And at least one former Pro Bowler says most players would like to see the all-star game remain in Hawaii on a permanent basis. Speaking as part of a panel discussion this week, David Uchiyama, the Hawaii Tourism Authority’s vice president for brand management and the state’s chief negotiator for Pro

Bowl matters, said the HTA is looking to get into a long-term contract with the NFL. The game will be played at Aloha Stadium in January 2014, but the NFL has made no commitment beyond next year. Other panel members were former NFL executive Frank Vuono and Olin Kreutz, a St. Louis School graduate and six-time NFL Pro Bowl center for the Chicago Bears. They were part of a discussion about the game’s future in Hawaii at the Downtown Athletic Club Hawaii luncheon Tuesday at the Hukilau Honolulu restaurant.

Kreutz said that most players, including himself, would love to have the game played in Hawaii on a permanent basis. Vuono said he would like to see events surrounding the Pro Bowl, such as the NFL’s fastest-man competition, golf tournaments and activities involving retired players, brought back to improve the overall experience. The game is credited with generating about $28 million for Hawaii’s economy. The state pays the NFL $4 million for the privilege of hosting the game.

WHAT’S NEXT FOR ROBBIE ALM?

Iconic New York fashion designer Carolina Herrera is opening a store at Ala Moana Center called “CH Carolina Herrera,” her first in Hawaii. A spokeswoman for Ala Moana Center told PBN that it will be opening in the center’s Ewa wing, taking the space between bebe and Sephora. The opening date is not yet confirmed. According to a City and County of Honolulu building permit, Herrera will spend $330,000 to renovate the space. The state’s largest shopping mall is in the midst of a $572 million redevelopment of the former Sears space, which will add 340,000 square feet of new retail space.

Robbie Alm, who has been the face of Hawaiian Electric Co. in the community and TV ads, says one of the reasons he is leaving the state’s largest utility on Aug. 30 is to make way for new leaders to emerge. Alm, 61, told PBN that he expects those new

leaders to include three current vice presidents: Scott Seu, Colton Ching and Ron Cox. Meanwhile, Alm says he will spend more time with his family, write a couple of books and increase his philanthropic activities. He says he is still searching for his next way to help Hawaii.

LONGTIME REAL ESTATE PARTNERS SPLIT Who: Doug Davis and Edward Brinkman, owners of Doug Davis Realty Inc. What: Split up in June. Davis joined Caron B Realty International, which owns the office building in Kaimuki where Doug Davis Realty was located. Brinkman

is now on his own along with the company’s former employees and agents. Background: Davis and Brinkman remain friends. They have had a business relationship since 1998.

Kauai Island Utility Cooperative President and CEO David Bissell made a bold statement at its annual meeting last week by saying Bissell that the Garden Isle should see electric bills reduced in the next several years. The extent of the savings was not clear, and Bissell pointed out that the savings projections are contingent on political stability, the cooperative’s ability to hit its renewable targets and on assumptions that include modest oil price increases. KIUC also said that it is exploring the possibility of offering rates that encourage customers to use power during the day, when electricity is cheaper. It also said it is looking at offering electric vehicle charging rates below the current rates.

A planned merger of Hawaii Pacific University with the Oceanic Institute would make the Waimanalo-based nonprofit research and development organization the research arm of the state’s largest private university, PBN has learned. The plan has been approved by both boards of trustees. The school and institute have had a working relationship for about a decade.

Pointe/Hoakalei 1,100-acre master-planned community. Haseko changed course in 2011, deciding instead to build a recreational lagoon that would be open to the public but not connected to the ocean. It said it made the change in part because of the high cost of building a channel to the ocean. In the lawsuit, the residents claim that failure to build the marina is hurting their property values.

Widespread labor unrest hit the Islands Local and Mainland strikes created domino effect on Hawaii’s economy

Editor’s Note: PBN celebrated its 50th anniversary on March 18, the date in 1963 when founder and Publisher George Mason launched his first issue. To commemorate PBN’s first 50 years, we offer a look at some of the top business stories over the past half-century.

50 YEARS AGO Strikes and strike threats in the Islands and on the Mainland were causing problems for Hawaii’s economy in the summer of 1963, according to a Page 1 story on July 29. The story noted that “certain lumber items needed by builders were in short supply, local lumber prices were rising, a Sept. 1 strike by construction workers seemed more likely than ever, and three importers of building materials failed to receive expected shipments because a consignment of newsprint — no longer needed by the city’s two struck dailies — constituted 70 percent of the vessel’s cargo for the Islands and the steamship company canceled the call at Honolulu.”

45 YEARS AGO Hawaii was gaining new businesses in 1968, according to a Page 1 story on July 29. PBN reported that new domestic corporations formed in the fiscal year just ended were up 20 percent from the previous fiscal year. The number of new foreign corporations was 12 percent higher year over year. The state had 8,356 domestic corporations and 1,248 foreign corporations as of June 30, 1968.

A PBN editorial on July 23, 1973, made light of the recording of telephone and office conversations by the Nixon White House. “Tens of thousands of people record phone conversations every day without the other party knowing it,” the editorial said, citing examples. “It goes on all the time and we’d be surprised if the members of the Senate Watergate Committee haven’t engaged in this type of thing themselves.” PBN called news reports of the secret recordings “another example of the growing hyprocracy in this country. It’s too bad the press doesn’t make a greater effort to keep such things in perspective.”

Some companies that catered to business travelers were trying to make life on the road easier for women, according to a Page 1 story on July 25, 1983. It said that approximately one in four American business travelers were women, up from about 1 percent in 1970. The story cited horror stories from women travelers, including the case of a female executive who was asked to leave a hotel lounge in San Franciso because “the hotel does not allow prostitutes on its premises.”

35 YEARS AGO A Page 1 story on July 24, 1978, reported that Knight Racquetball Development Corp. was planning to build a $6 million fitness center at Ward Avenue and South King Street, to be called the Honolulu Club. It would be part of a ninelevel, 142,000-square-foot building. The developer would use an existing building

“Confronted by property tax increases big enough to choke a horse, more than 50 Big Island ranchers are hoping the county finds a way to give them some relief,” said the lead to a Page 1 story on July 23, 1990. The problem involved portions of ranches designated conservation land by the Land Use Commission. One rancher said his assessed valuation soared from $20 to $1,500 an acre, increasing his tax bill from $667 to more than $50,000.

15 YEARS AGO 27 YEARS AGO Hawaii was being touted as a great place to do business, according to a Page 1 story on July 28, 1986. Oceanic Properties, a subsidiary of Castle & Cooke, had retained marketing representatives in California and Japan to spread the good word about the Islands, especially to high-technology firms. Among the selling points: Hawaii’s skilled and semi-skilled labor costs were 15 percent to 20 percent less than in California, and a third of all

Beanie Babies were the craze in Hawaii in 1998, according to a Page 1 story on July 27. Some customers were waiting in lines for hours to get their hands on the stuffed dogs, bears, pigs, lambs, ducks, worms and bunnies with the heart-shaped Ty Inc. logo. The Illinoisbased manufacturer could not ship the Beanie Babies to Hawaii fast enough to keep up with demand. The suggested retail price was $5, but some stores were charging $2 more.

COVER STORY

Which is harder for Henk Rogers, BY STEPHANIE SILVERSTEIN ssilverstein@bizjournals.com | 955-8046 enk Rogers, the man responsible for bringing “Tetris” to hand-held video game devices around the world, now spends most of his time at home with his wife, Akemi, on Puu Waawaa Ranch on the Kona side of the Big Island. He plays the tile-matchingpuzzle video game only occasionally, more often opting for the latest mainstream games to hit video consoles, such as “World of Warcraft,” or some of his other favorites, including “Sudoku” and “Settlers of Catan.” He leaves his home every couple of weeks to spend a few days doing business on Oahu. During those visits he will typically find time to see as many of his four grown children as he can. But even when Rogers is not at his Harbor Court office in Downtown Honolulu, that doesn’t mean he’s not working. Nowadays, however, that work is just as likely to include time spent thinking about ways to protect the two things most precious to him — land and life — as it is pursuing a new business venture. In addition to his wellknown crusade against the use of carbon-based fuels, his tech-oriented mind has him thinking about making what he calls a “backup plan” for life on Earth. He also wants to discover how the universe ends — and do something to prevent it. And when he is not trying to save the world, Rogers is trying to create a future in Hawaii for technology entrepreneurs. Some people really like a challenge.

H

INSPIRATION FROM A MONK AND JONI MITCHELL Tetris creator Alexey Pajitnov, Minoru Arakawa and Rogers founded Tetris Online Inc. in 2006. It is the exclusive online licensee of The Tetris Co. LLC, which holds the rights to the “Tetris” game in North America and Europe. The company operates from the 21st floor of Harbor Court. Four floors below, Rogers runs Blue Planet Software Inc., the sole agent for The Tetris Co.; Blue Startups, a venture accelerator program for tech companies; and, Blue Planet Foundation, a nonprofit organization committed to ending the use of fossil fuels on Earth. “People ask me: Why do you do it in Hawaii? I say, because I can,” Rogers said. He once asked a friend, a former Buddhist monk in Tibet, about heaven. “Everything he described to me, I said ‘Dude, you’re describing Hawaii!’,” Rogers said. “You could either wait until you die or you could get on a plane. ‘Why wait?’ is the question.” In his own convincing way, Rogers insists that Hawaii should be the perfect place for many technology companies. “People who are the right age to create and to be in the technology business want to live in Hawaii because it’s a great place for their children to grow up,” he said. “If you look at all of the high-tech people that are in Hawaii, they’re in Hawaii because this is where they want their children to grow up.” Some people would call that simplistic, but for Rogers the thought of Hawaii as a haven for tech refugees is easy to see. Rogers came to Hawaii for the first time at age 18. The year was 1972, and his family — his mother and seven younger brothers — was using Hawaii as a two-week stopover on its way to Japan to join Rogers’ stepfather. Orig-

inally from the Netherlands but raised and educated in New York City, Rogers fell in love with Hawaii and the ocean during those two weeks, which turned into a year. After a year, the rest of his family continued on to Japan, while Rogers enrolled at the University of Hawaii Manoa where, four years later, he earned a bachelor’s degree in computer science. When he wasn’t in class, Rogers played and discussed roleplaying video games with the Alternative Recreational Realities Group of Hawaii — a group he still gets together with from time to time to play new video games. Today, Rogers’ companies and nonprofit organizations are operated from Hawaii, Rogers’ heaven-like paradise fit for business and pleasure. While tourism is undoubtedly the state’s No. 1 industry, Rogers says technology is a great business for Hawaii. “I think that if we look far into the future, it should be a third of the economy,” he said, while acknowledging that tourism, the military and construction are the state’s three primary economic drivers today. “Construction is fine, but we’re going to get to the point where we’ve paved paradise and put up a

parking lot, so to speak,” he said, paraphrasing the Joni Mitchell song “Big Yellow Taxi.”

MAKING A BACKUP PLAN OF LIFE ON EARTH Rogers is past the point in life where all of his passions have to be practical or even seemingly plausible, for that matter. He wants to make a backup plan for life on Earth that would create a way for humans to exist on another planet, and he’s thinking Mars would be the best place for it because it is the most Earth-like planet in our solar system.

saving Earth or helping entrepreneurs? “The most amazing thing that ever happened to this planet is life. It doesn’t matter whether you think it’s divine intervention or spontaneous generation or panspermia,” Rogers said. “It doesn’t matter which one of those you believe in. It’s still the most amazing thing that ever happened here.” A planet without life, he added, is kind of boring. “For us to bring life to another planet is the most amazing thing we could ever do to that planet. It could be the most amazing thing we ever do as a species,” he said. “In order to survive on those other planets, the environment is very, very extreme, and so we cannot afford to waste anything, not a single drop of water, not a single molecule of air. Those are precious, precious, precious. In learning how to live on other planets, we will learn how to live here, because we have to learn how to live sustainably.” Rogers’ first step in fulfilling this mission may come through his work with the Pacific International Space Center for Exploration Systems, for which he serves as vice chair. PISCES is the state’s effort to “extend humankind’s presence beyond low-Earth orbit in ways that are broadly beneficial, affordable, technologically attainable

and ultimately sustainable,” according to PISCES. “I’m doing everything I can to support PISCES and to get space exploration started in Hawaii,” Rogers said, adding that it is intertwined with exploring the possibility of life on Mars. Jim Crisafulli, director of the Hawaii Office of Aerospace Development, said Rogers has been part of the visionary team for PISCES since it was conceptualized,

having captured what the essence of PISCES should be and how it could benefit the state on several fronts. “He is a visionary who is able to both, at the same time, have a comprehensive understanding of the current opportunities and benefits that a particular program will entail, but also being able to link that potential with the future in a very dynamic way to empower a vision for the future that is quite inspirational,” Crisafulli said. “He combines a unique almalgam of both intellectual curiosity with a very strong professional business sense and acumen — that combination of which is really quite dynamic and enables a holistic approach to analysis when it comes to making business decisions or evaluating the ability to move forward on particular programs.” In addition to Rogers’ interest in space exploration, he also has a strong network of powerful friends and acquaintances. He has talked with billionaire Richard Branson about bringing Virgin Galactic and its mission to build the world’s first commercial space line to Hawaii. “He’s at that level of talking with top CEOs worldwide, that one-on-one relationship he has with top leaders in various fields provides an entree for our state to partner in ways that will be maximally beneficial to our citizenry,” Crisafulli said. “He’s extremely well connected, he’s a visionary, and he has Hawaii’s best interests at heart.”

MOSCOW ’89: ROGERS’ MOST IMPORTANT BUSINESS MEETING The single-most significant business decision of Rogers’ career was made when he traveled to Moscow in 1989 at age 35 and met with “Tetris” creator Alexey Pajitnov and secured the rights to license “Tetris” on hand-held video game devices. Rogers remembers himself and Pajitnov being the only people in the meeting who knew anything about video games. Pajitnov, a video game designer, quickly figured out Rogers was a video game designer-turned-businessman. They are still friends and business partners today. Rogers recalls the day he discovered “Tetris” at a consumer electronics show in Las Vegas in early 1988. He relates the game to “Go,” a favorite of his stepfather. “The game itself is deceptively simple. “Tetris” is like one of those kinds of games, where you look at it and say this can’t really be a computer game, it’s too simple. We’ve moved past this kind of thing,” Rogers said. He recalls “Tetris” being shown to one of the biggest companies in Japan at the time. “They passed, because they said it was too much of a retro game. I love this. It’s a retro game in 1988. People can say whatever they want to say about it, but it’s a basic game — it’s not a retro game. You could say golf is a retro game because they played it 200 years ago,” Rogers said. “But it’s not a retro game, it’s a game people play right now.” At that time, Rogers owned a company called Bullet Proof Software, which is the company that published his first video game, “The Black Onyx.” Rogers is now managing director of The Tetris Co., which still holds the exclusive rights of all licenses to “Tetris.” He founded Blue Lava Wireless to design and develop cell phone games — including “Tetris” — in 2002, after the state of Hawaii introduced Act 221 tax credits for

Trying to solve some of the world’s most difficult problems has always been an intriguing proposition for Honolulu entrepreneur Henk Rogers. But at the end of the day he’s still smiling.

COVER STORY

ROGERS: He’s now doing what needs to be done CONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 technology businesses. “I moved back to Hawaii thinking that finally there was a way to finance a company in Hawaii,” he said. He had been living and working in California for six years, running Blue Planet Software from San Francisco, a place where he was able to find the investment and support he needed. “Hawaii just wasn’t ready to do that kind of business,” he said. But Act 221 changed all that. “This time, I made up my mind I was going to grow this company, and the first opportunity I had to sell this company, I was going to sell it.” In 2005, Rogers sold Blue Lava Wireless to Jamdat for $137 million. A year later, he had netted another $50 million from the sale, thanks to stock Rogers had in the company. “Ca-ching,” he said with a smile. Despite the “ca-ching”-sized return, Rogers said Blue Lava Wireless was the business he operated in the most relaxed fashion. In fact, he didn’t even show up to work on Wednesdays, following the example set by former Nintendo Co. Ltd. President Hiroshi Yamauchi. “It’s funny, but it didn’t hurt the performance of the company at all,” Rogers said. Ironically, Rogers met with me in his office at Harbor Court in Downtown Honolulu on a Wednesday to be interviewed for this story.

A POLICY OF BUYING AND CREATING “My policy has always been if it exists, buy it, and if it doesn’t exist, create it,” Rogers said. Last year, that way of thinking led him to create the state’s first venture accelerator program to give startups the kind of opportunity he would have benefited from earlier in his career. He is investing in and providing hands-on mentorship to what he calls “capital efficient” and potentially fast-growing technology companies. “I don’t look at Blue Startups as a profit center for me. It is something that I’m doing because it needs to be done,” Rogers said. Companies accepted into the Blue Startups program receive $20,000 as an upfront investment and access to more than $100,000 in in-kind services, including workspace at the “Sky

Box,” located in the Blue Startups office space. Blue Startups received $200,000 to support operations and $500,000 for an affiliated investment fund from the state through the Hawaii Strategic Development Corp.’s Launch Akamai Venture Accelerator program. “We are very pleased that he stepped forward to sponsor Hawaii’s first accelerator,” said Karl Fooks, president of the HSDC. “Our belief is Hawaii needs sources of economic growth. Our main industries are relatively mature, and while vibrant, are not generating the economic growth — in particular, the high-wage job opportunities — that our educated children are looking for. We have an element of a brain drain we confront, and we think about trying to attract our talented kamaaina to come back.” The eight companies that participated in Blue Startups’ first round, which ran for 12 weeks this spring, already have attracted more than $3 million in investment capital. One of those is Volta Charging, which has raised $500,000 while participating in the program, through Blue Startups but also from outside investors. “We’re trying to launch Volta nationally. This has been a good launching point for that,” said co-founder and CEO Scott Mercer. While participating in the program, Volta Charging has grown from Mercer and business partner Michael Menendez working out of coffee shops to a team of eight people involved in the company, and a home base at Blue Startups’ Sky Box office. “Henk has been awesome,” Mercer said, adding that Rogers drives a couple of electric cars himself. “He’s been really supportive of getting Volta up and running. He’s got a vested stake in it. It pairs really well with Blue Planet Foundation, which is also housed out of the same office.” Blue Planet Foundation provides the funding mechanism for Rogers’ effort to end the use of carbon-based fuel. The nonprofit organization is committed to ending the use of fossil fuels throughout the world, starting in Hawaii. For anyone else, that may seem like a daunting task. But maybe not so much for someone who is trying to create a thriving culture for tech entrepreneurs in Hawaii, make a backup plan for life on Earth and discover how the universe ends. One could debate which one of those tasks will prove to be the most difficult.

Don’t let Henk Rogers’ relaxed demeanor fool you: His plate is still full while he tries to solve a number of weighty issues.

Designing a company true to its mission Clothing designers say key to success is sharp focus on a core product BY STEPHANIE SILVERSTEIN ssilverstein@bizjournals.com | 955-8046 ighting Eel designers and co-owners Rona Bennett and Lan Chung have come a long way since running their women’s fashion line from their living room 10 years ago. The former roommates and current business partners have gone from hand-sewing items in their apartment to designing clothing in their Chinatown studio office, having it manufactured in Los Angeles, and selling it in three of their own retail stores on Oahu, as well as in boutiques in Hawaii and on the Mainland. Their clothing has been worn by celebrities including Mariah Carey, Rachel McAdams, Eva Longoria, Hayden Panettiere and Paris Hilton, and has been published in numerous fashion and gossip magazines, helping to grow their brand. But Bennett and Chung are inspired by designing for the people they know best: themselves. “It’s pretty much us,” Bennett said. “That seems to be the best for us. That’s the secret formula. When you try to do something else, it’s harder, it’s not genuine.”

F

They opened Fighting Eel’s third retail store in June at the Royal Hawaiian Center in Waikiki, after years of being courted by the center, but they said they did not feel ready to open a Waikiki store until now. They are open to the idea of further retail expansion once the Waikiki store is established, following a model they set after opening their first Chinatown store in 2009, followed by their Kailua store in 2011. “We’re going to make sure that does really well before we open the next thing,” Bennett said. Meanwhile, they’re staying with what they’re good at: designing women’s clothing. They have no intention of entering the male fashion market. “Guys don’t shop, and when they do they’re very practical,” Bennett said. “It’s not as profitable and not as fun, either, because we’re not into it ... you have to know what you’re good at, and do that.” Their target customers are women living in Hawaii, like themselves, but they have become popular with Japanese visitors, as well. Celebrities are not their focus and never have been, although the rich and famous did help to grow the brand when they were working in the wholesale business. Now that they have boutique stores on Oahu, they focus on design-

ing for women who live on and visit the island. They also have started designing clothing for little girls under the label “Mini Eel,” and they created a second fashion line, Ava Sky, named after Chung’s 3-year-old daughter. The clothing, however, is for adults. Fighting Eel is jersey material, while Ava Sky is resort or island wear. Bennett and Chung would not share the meaning behind the name Fighting Eel, saying only that it is a secret. They also would not disclose financial data. About 70 percent of the inventory in the retail stores comes from the Fighting Eel and Ava Sky lines, with the rest from other fashion brands. They sell clothing, jewelry, purses, accessories and books about fashion.

STRATEGIES ■ Expand into areas close to potential new customers while staying true to the original customer base. ■ Stay focused on the core product, in this case women’s clothing. ■ Make sure that current locations are successful before considering further expansion. ■ Maintain quality control by working closely with a trusted manufacturer. They visit the stores about once a week and consider themselves micro managers of their companywide staff of about two dozen employees. “That’s the challenge, is letting go,” Bennett said. “The hardest part is once you have it, [to] keep meeting that level of quality.” To that end, they focus on employee training, holding regular staff meetings and staying on top of everything happening within the company. An integral part of the quality control happens in Los Angeles, where Fighting Eel’s clothing is manufactured at a factory run by Chung’s sister-in-law. “We’ve been working with the same factory for 10 years,” Chung said. She said her sister-in-law initially was based in Hawaii

and is considering moving back to the Islands, which she said would help Fighting Eel. But in the meantime, Chung and Bennett feel it is worth working with a manufacturer they know and trust. “There’s a certain quality that we want, so we want to make sure it’s sewn where we want it to be sewn,” Chung said. They tried working with a factory in Hawaii, but the production time did not work for either company. But manufacturing in Hawaii does work for some local fashion designers. For example, it makes perfect sense for fashion designer Mamo Howell. “You have complete control, you have terrific choices, you can pick and choose who you want to sew for you,” Howell said. Anne Namba manufactures some of her Anne Namba Designs in Hawaii. “It’s beneficial to have it here because you can have better quality control,” she said. “The challenges are trying to find good seamstresses.” For Fighting Eel, Chung and Bennett say it is worth working with a manufacturer that they are satisfied with, even if it requires traveling to California. “It takes so long for us to get the production the way we want it,” Bennett said. “It would be stupid for us to start from scratch.”

perative to have a website. A simple one is fine. But you must be online and it must be congruent with your brand. Occasionally, I will bump into a “successful” firm run by an “old-school” guy who doesn’t doesn’t believe “in all that web stuff.” Can they survive asis? Yes, of course. But will they thrive over the mid-term? Probably not. Will they attract and retain younger, moresophisticated talent? Definitely not. The good news is, you don’t need to spend a lot of time or effort to get going. Just hop on Google and see what pops up when you search on your company name. Is there a clear and concise landing page explaining who you are, what you do, why someone should use your services and how anyone can get in touch with you? Expect to spend $500 for a decent one-page site that gets the job done.

Mistake No. 2: I don’t need to learn it. It’s amazing how narrow-minded some business leaders can be. They are intelligent and can learn just about anything when motivated to do so. But, when it comes to computers and the Internet, too many people claim technophobia and punt responsibility to the bookkeeper, the friend of a friend, or a distant relative. Usually, that dismissive attitude leads to fumbled opportunity. Your business is hundred of thousands of dollars, if not millions. As a business executive or owner, you took the time to know and love your financial statement because it was/is important. Give your IT the same level of commitment. You don’t need to become an expert; you just need to know enough to recognize one. Not sure where to start? Just ask Uncle Google.

Mistake No. 3: We can’t afford it. Cost shouldn’t be the primary consid-

Return on investment should. Don’t approach online marketing as a black hole expense. Instead, view it as opportunity to reach new clients in a more-efficient way. Every aspect of your digital strategy should have clear purpose and accountability. You would never hire someone just for the heck of it. Likewise, you shouldn’t build a website, start a blog, or advertise online without a clear mission and well-defined goals. Your website should be your best employee — working 24/7 — delivering results.

Mistake No. 4: Let’s form a committee. I showed a colleague the new collateral material for Island Air. His reply: “The new design is lame. It’s all about giving good meeting.” Anything done by committee tends to be more about posturing than about being bold. Because your online properties will be visible across the globe, you should convey as much personality as possible. Avoid the me-too syndrome. Mediocrity kills.

Mistake No. 5: We need it to be excellent. Most business leaders excelled in school because they were committed to excellence. They realized good grades came from being great — not just good. In the business world, excellence can mean costly delays and ultimately missed opportunity. I have been guilty of this. I want everything to be pixel perfect. Perfection, though, can take time. And chasing perfection can take months, if not years. As you march toward everything digital, don’t be overly concerned about being perfect. Speed is king in this world. Six months can mean the difference between a great idea and a copycat product. Of course, fix the typos and all the bugs, but get the new site launched right away. You can always circle back later and improve it. Beat your competitors to the marketspace. Let them get stuck in the quagmire in the pursuit of excellence. Please join us at the Aug. 9 breakfast seminar. I will share the secrets I’ve collected over the past 10 years as owner of SuperGeeks.

NABCAP: 2013 GUIDE TO BUILDING WEALTH

Finding ways to save in a world of low interest rates BY JENNA BLAKELY jblakely@bizjournals.com | 955-8056 Despite today’s low interest rates, local wealth-management advisers stand by the value of traditional savings accounts, especially as a vehicle for middleclass families that may not have the risk tolerance or spending allowance to invest in the open market. With interest rates hitting a low of 0.25 percent, putting money in a basic savings account seems little different from stashing it under a mattress. But bankers say it’s still important to have a rainy day fund and to get into the habit of paying yourself first. Vernon Wong, senior vice president of First Hawaiian Bank’s Wealth Management Group, says having a savings account is crucial regardless of the interest rate. “If you’re going to need money in the short term, less than two or three years, you really should not fool around, and you should keep it in a savings account,� he said. “Regardless of what the interest rate is, it’s okay because it’s money you can’t afford to lose; it’s that safety net.� That, he says, is the first bucket for saving money. The next is “intermediate money,� investments for the next three to 10 years. “Then you can start thinking about, based on your risk tolerance, getting into something with more growth potential, whether it be stocks and bonds through a mutual fund or through an exchange

TINA YUEN

Jianna Chew, assistant vice president and wealth adviser, and David Lum, vice president and portfolio manager at Bank of Hawaii, say there are better ways to save than to put all of one’s money in a piggy bank. traded fund,� he said. “In the longer term, [the third bucket], you can think about investment in real estate or a higher allocation to the stock market.� For those stuck in the first bucket, there are other vehicles to use with slightly higher interest rates, such as money market accounts and certificates of deposit. Garett Cosner, senior vice president and regional manager with Central Pacific Bank, noted that money market accounts and CDs don’t offer a significant benefit

compared to basic savings accounts. “There is little difference,� he said. “Sometimes a money market account might be a little bit better.� A CD, on the other hand, is not as flexible as a money market account. “A CD is a time contract, which might give you a slight edge up on interest rates,� Cosner said. “But, if something pops up and you take money out, you might experience an early withdrawal penalty.� Be cautious of investing in a way that freezes your money, says David Lum,

vice president and portfolio manager of Bank of Hawaii’s Investment Management Services. “Given the low interest rates, be careful about long lockups and investment products that may have excessive costs that can eat up your return,� he said. Lum suggested municipal bonds as another vehicle for saving. They are considered among the safest long-term investments and have tax advantages. Often, the biggest deterrents to saving — whether for a rainy day fund or long-term needs — stem from personal spending and saving habits. “First, you need to get rid of credit card debt before you look to create savings,� Lum said. Cosner agrees, adding that credit card debt and auto loan debt can weigh down young couples in particular, who are often stuck trying to save for huge expenses such as weddings and first-time homes. Wong said a good savings plan often starts with a change in budgeting habits. “People normally pay their mortgage, rent and car first, and keep whatever is left for entertainment,� he said. “Then, what is left they save — it’s usually zero. What we try to advise people is to put yourself first just like the mortgage payment, whether it’s automatic payroll deduction or deduction from a checking into a savings or investment account. At the end of the month you’ll still have zero, but at least you’ve cared for your savings portion.�

‘Bubble’ scenario stays alive, fueled by global public debt U.S. looks attractive to investors compared to most other countries ublic debt is the sum of outstanding obligations held by a government on behalf of its citizens. As with any debt, public debt is backed by the ability of the borrower (the government) to pay back its obligations and any interest owed to lenders on a timely basis. Recent discussions on how to cut U.S. debt obligations have led to heated debates, increased taxes and mandatory spending cuts prompted by sequestration. While economists and politicians are at odds as to the effects of public leverage domestically, the levels of global public debt are astronomical and continue to provide fuel for the ongoing “bubble” scenario witnessed in investments and asset classes of all types. U.S. federal debt obligations are currently capped at $16.4 trillion. Foreign central banks hold approximately 47 percent of the U.S. public debt and China is the single largest holder of our obligations, which is largely attributable to our trade imbalance with China. Some of these central banks replaced some of their U.S. dollar-denominated reserve assets with International Monetary Fund

P

gold holdings. This move came at a time of global economic growth — whereby commodity assets showed strong growth tendencies — helping to fuel the KALEIALOHA recent gold bubble. CADINHA-PUAA Investors who anticipated the gold run-up WEALTHand bought early did MANAGEMENT fairly well. Those STRATEGIES who held gold during the recent bubble “pop” experienced a dramatic correction and many incurred losses. The subprime mortgage crisis that plagued our financial system was a direct result of excess liquidity, aggressive bank lending and government-induced tax incentives. Housing and real estate prices increased dramatically as a result of easy money policies. The net worth of U.S. households grew to 6.64 times GDP in 2006 at the high of the housing market and dropped to a low of 3.55 times GDP in 2009, after the housing bubble popped. Trillions of dollars of net worth were lost and many losses from this asset bubble have yet to be recovered. CONTINUED ON PAGE 21

JULY 26, 2013

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 During the European debt crisis, investors flooded the U.S. bond market in search of safety, liquidity and shelter from the carnage witnessed in the European debt markets. At that time, the U.S. bond market bubble grew to a level where investors were willing to lock in their income for 10 years at a rate of 1.5 percent, much lower than the historical inflation rate. The recent correction in the bond market moved these 10-year bond rates nearly 100 basis points higher and, again, those who rode the bond market upward fared well. Those who held bonds at the time of the bond bubble correction experienced dramatic losses. Historically, wars have been attributed to the sharp increases in public debt and, in turn, the post-war periods typically witnessed some of the strongest periods of economic growth — resulting in decreases in public debt on record. The ongoing reduction of American forces in the Middle East is tracing a similar pattern of economic growth, and with spending cuts in place (albeit through sequestration), we hope to see some decrease in public debt. Low interest rates, combined with domestic and international infrastructure growth plans, have fueled yet another resurgence in optimism. As investors migrate to find better opportunities to earn higher returns with lower levels of risk, the U.S. looks more attractive. Our laws and

regulations provide stability. Our companies are strong and are held to standards of service unseen anywhere else in the world. Many U.S. companies carry little to no debt, are leaders in their industries and reward investors with returns on investments that are visible and consistent. While our domestic public debt levels are high on a historical basis and still a concern for many, our obligations seem manageable relative to the heavy borrowing of other countries. Japan was heavily indebted prior to the tsunami devastation that has demanded huge amounts of public infrastructure spending and tremendous public debt. China’s overbuilding is creating its own asset bubble. Greece, Italy, France and many other European countries continue to battle high levels of public debt and loss of confidence in the financial institutions that manage and create their currencies. Brazil, Argentina and many South American countries carry unsustainable debt loads and struggle with the results of the recent commodity crash. So, now it seems to be our turn at bat. Enjoy the ride and be on the lookout for signs of a bubble if the ride becomes parabolic. Remember that this is likely to be just another chapter of global deleveraging. KALEIALOHA K.

NABCAP: 2013 GUIDE TO BUILDING WEALTH

pacificbusinessnews.com | PACIFIC BUSINESS NEWS 23

NABCAP Premier Advisors ABOUT: The National Association of Board Certified Advisory Practices (NABCAP) is an unaffiliated, nonprofit organization based in Colorado that was created to tackle the daunting challenge of identifying top practitioners, and through the process help reform the public’s perception of the industry and its professional membership. NABCAP currently has a presence in thirtyfive plus U.S. markets. The nonprofit along with its board of directors developed a formula designed to identify the best practices as determined by NABCAP. Separating and distinguishing the strongest practitioners from the industry’s pool of advisors is a solution with merit. The difficulty lies in the clear need for transparency. “I’m very interested and concerned about the integrity of the industry,” says Dr. Chuck King, NABCAP board vice president. “Our goal is to make sure that the people who make our list meet our guidelines. It’s not about just hanging out a shingle. One of the reasons I got involved was the need for more scrutiny.” The public requires a reliable, independent resource to provide clarity for their financial decisions. NABCAP was formed to help clarify the picture. And while NABCAP knows there is no perfect solution, it is committed to promoting higher standards and transparency, which are vital to the long-term success of the investing public. “We’re not just counting assets under management,” says King. “We’re interested in the processes used. And we don’t just take anybody. This is not a pay-to-play Organization. I’m a big believer in free markets. And what makes free markets work is information, not a lot of regulations. The more perfect the informa-

tion, the more perfect the regulation.” METHODOLOGY: The primary focus of NABCAP is to serve the needs of the investing public by helping identify top wealth managers. NABCAP and its board of directors created an unaffiliated evaluation process in which 20 categories of practice management are assessed. Advisors are invited and/or nominated to participate by submitting an online questionnaire. The multi-step verification process utilizes independent resources to assess the accuracy and truthfulness of the information submitted by participating advisory practices. NABCAP’s methodology is unique in deciphering advisors because it is primarily objective, not subjective, and helps add transparency for the investor’s benefit. NABCAP takes pride that its list of Premier Advisors is not merely defined by Assets Under Management (A.U.M.), revenues produced or even worse, popularity. Alternatively, NABCAP attempts to identify top advisors regardless of size, firm or affiliation. CONSUMER USE: Even though NABCAP’s vetting process is comprehensive in evaluating advisors, every single practice on the list most likely will not fit you the investor. The list of advisory practices is in alphabetical order; NABCAP believes there is not one perfect practice for every investor out there. The first step recommended by NABCAP is to narrow down the list of practices by average client size. It is recommended you select practices that have an average client size of ½ - ¼ the size client you would estimate yourself, family or business to be. For example, if you have approximately

$2 million of investable assets then identify practices with an average client size of $500K- 1million. This way, you fall within the top 20% of a practice’s entire clientele. This increases the probability you receive the practice’s top shelf service, care and attention. In addition to narrowing down the field of practices by average size client, it is recommended you also reference the practice’s top 5 specialties and designations to assure they are equipped and focused on handling your individual needs. Try to select at least 3 practices to interview for different personalities, service models and practice methodologies. NABCAP’s focus is to provide objective differentiation between financial advisory practices and through their evaluation process to help add transparency to the Financial Services Industry. Even though the NABCAP Premier Advisors’ list is comprehensive it should not be considered exhaustive and the following disclaimers should be considered: [a] To ensure the best interests of the investing public, NABCAP does not accept financial support from advisory practices, financial institutions or the media in exchange for beneficial reviews, rankings or industry insight. NABCAP is not affiliated with any advisor or financial institution participating in the survey. [b] Selecting a NABCAP Premier Advisor is no guarantee as to future investment success nor is there any guarantee that the selected financial advisory practice will be designated as a Premier Advisor by NABCAP in the future. [c] The inclusion of a financial advisory

practice on the NABCAP Premier Advisor’s list should not be construed as an endorsement of the financial advisory practice by NABCAP or Pacific Business News. [d] Although NABCAP invites all advisors in a market to participate, the final decision lies with the advisor and as such there may be advisors who would qualify but do not appear on the list as they chose not to participate and if they were included some advisors on this list would not have been included. [e] NABCAP screens candidates for regulatory compliance issues: checks and balances are imposed to limit the inclusion of an advisor with a negative regulatory history or multiple client complaints. These checks and balances include: (i) NABCAP requires financial advisors to be registered/licensed financial advisors in good standing with state and federal regulatory bodies. In addition NABCAP requires financial advisors to be in compliance with their respective broker/dealer or affiliated representation (ii) NABCAP reviews each financial advisor and support staff’s U-4 or ADV to verify their employment and compliance record. (iii) If an advisory practice makes the list with a settlement on their record we recommend that investors inquire with the advisory practice as well with their supervisor for the nature of the settlement. [f] The supervisor survey is structured to make it equally easy for a respondent to give negative or positive responses and the method of calculating results incorporates CONTINUED ON PAGE 24

both negative and positive survey responses [g] NABCAP does not perform subjective analysis of the survey results but assigns numerical ratings based on questionnaire and survey responses, as well as third party verification. [h] 2000+ direct contacts were made via email and mail in Hawaii and 12,354 indirect to subscribers for participation/nomination of participants. Premier Advisors list will not exceed 3.5% of each market’s financial advisory practices [i] NABCAP created the methodology and process. Rank Premier Advisors is contracted to administer the evaluation process. [j] All advertisements in the special advertising section were sold exclusively by Pacific Business News and not endorsed in any way by NABCAP. NABCAP VIEWPOINT: As impossible as it may seem, the U.S. population has experienced some slight growth on the heels of the second worst recession this country has ever experienced. According to CapGemini’s World Wealth Report 2011, the population of High Net-worth Individuals in North America has risen 25% since 2008. Even considering this slight incline in personal wealth, the fundamentals on the current US economy are still in an unstable state with talks of possibly entering another recessionary period. It remains critical that investors are able to identify quality wealth managers to assist them in weathering these challenging market environments. NABCAP’s objective research has proven to identify quality practitioners in over 35+ US markets since the recession. The National Association of Board Certified Advisory Practices (NABCAP) was created in 2008 by it’s board of directors — representing industry insiders, investors and non-industry professionals — with over four years of research and interviews with investors and advisors. One of NABCAP’s main objectives is to hold the investment advising community to a higher standard, said Chuck King, NABCAP board vice president and dean emeritus of the School of Business and Leadership at Colorado Christian University. To ensure the best interest of the investing public, NABCAP does not accept financial support from advisory practices, financial institutions, or the media in exchange for beneficial reviews, rankings or industry insights. “This isn’t a money-driven effort,” said King. “It’s designed purely to provide information to investors and not to line someone’s pocket. Until financial advisors and banks and everyone else begins to police themselves we’re going to have problems. It’s essential that markets are operating properly for a free enterprise system to work.” The nonprofit organization is achieving its overarching goal of empowering the investing community by adding transparency to financial services industry. NABCAP Premier Advisors lists are a powerful reference for investors to identify the top wealth managers in their local market. Each market varies in size and is based on participation. Neither advisors nor firms pay to participate. With over 400,000 registered investment professionals nationally NABCAP has their work cut out for them. The nonprofit plans to expand it’s footprint to even more US markets in the immediate future. Below is a chart of the current markets open to participation for advisors, and investors, you the reader, to utilize the research for better informative decisions towards personal financial needs.

CATHOLIC CHARITIES HAWAI‘I LAUNCHES FUTURES CAMPAIGN

10 things to ask before

CHOOSING A NONPROFIT TO SUPPORT

We asked several experts what new entrepreneurs should think about when selecting a nonprofit organization for the company to support.

1. N INNOVATION O I T A CC E N E SSIBILITY PREV

2.

These are the keys to addressing the ongoing and future social services needs of our keiki, ku-puna, and ‘ohana. We need your investment today to impact the people who need us most tomorrow.

3.

Catholic Charities Hawai‘i Futures Campaign, Building a Bridge to Tomorrow, to raise $6.3 million will enable us to help more people across the state while ensuring stable and efficient operations for the future.

4.

Our future and yours depend on the change we implement now. Please join us as we build this bridge to tomorrow through expansion, prevention and innovation. Your financial assistance will allow us to help more people help themselves, regardless of their faith.

5. 6.

And in the end, this is what it’s all about—a future of hope.

THE FUTURE IS NOW! To make a contribution to the Futures Campaign, contact us today. 1822 Ke‘eaumoku Street, Honolulu, 96822 Phone: 524-4673 www.CatholicCharitiesHawaii.org

7. 8. 9.

Helping people in need to help themselves, regardless of their faith.

10.

What are you doing in the community? The nonprofit should be able to show how it benefits and interacts with the community. Does the organization not only fulfill its mission but also look beyond it? Is it making strategic partnerships?

What is your mission? The organization must be able to articulate a clear and concise mission. Of course, you must believe in the mission and not have any moral objections to it. Also, think about how the mission might affect your corporate reputation. Is your company going to be seen as politically biased because of your involvement with the group?

Can our missions coincide? You should focus on similar causes, and the nonprofit’s mission should further your business’s mission. For example, as part of its mission, Goodwill Industries tries to put people back to work, and a bank’s mission would align well with Goodwill’s because working people are more likely to open accounts.

Do you plan to expand your services? As with for-profit organizations, yearly growth, in part, defines the success of a nonprofit. Is the organization expanding its reach and hiring more employees? Has it added services? If a nonprofit becomes stagnant in its activities, donors may drop off, and you don’t want to have the weight of all donations on your shoulder because the group is losing its backing.

What companies do you work with? A nonprofit’s reputation is very important. Look at its other partnerships and make some reference checks. Companies that support the nonprofit will be able to tell you things that aren’t listed on its website.

Are volunteer opportunities offered? A nonprofit should offer volunteers more than one big annual event. See if it has activities throughout the year that your employees participate in, such as food drives, toy drives and outreach programs. Also, the activities should be related to your staff ’s interests and causes. That will help broaden your relationship with the nonprofit group.

What benefits do supporters receive? While a nonprofit’s cause should be an end in and of itself for your company, business is still business. There are many activities in the nonprofit sector that will give a good return on your investment and provide marketing opportunities to promote your company. What returns and marketing benefits will you receive for sponsoring an event or running a food drive?

What percentage of your revenue goes toward mission fulfillment? Make sure you know where your money is going. Yes, some goes toward administrative and marketing costs, but a considerably large percentage should be used to fund the cause. That kind of focus also helps ensure that the nonprofit is credible and well-run.

How do you define success? A nonprofit’s impact can be pretty amorphous, but you want to know there is return on your investment. What parameters does the nonprofit use to measure success? If the organization is purely about revenue generation, you should question its legitimacy. Revenue generation should combine with mission fulfillment to determine success.

Who are your executives and board members? As with a business, leaders are the rudders of a nonprofit. Look at the track records of the group’s executives. What have they achieved in their past positions that could predict their accomplishments at the nonprofit?

Building boom can be boost to education We have an opportunity to develop our keiki as we build communities he promise of a residential construction boom in Hawaii offers an opportunity to bring the state’s public school system even further into the 21st century. It will require a commitment from the best minds in our business, government and educational sectors. And, it will not be cheap. But, it can be done. Consider: Developers are planning to build thousands of homes in West and Central Oahu, in the Hoopili and Koa Ridge subdivisions. Their plans call for new schools to accommodate the growing populations. Meanwhile, developers are planning to turn Kakaako into a neighborhood of high-rise condominiums, adding thousands of units. Recent stories have suggested that no one has completely thought through the impact of those units on the public school system, but there is little doubt that they

T

will add to the need for more schools, or additions to existing ones. A problem? Or, an opOUR VIEW portunity? The PBN editorial board sat down recently with the two top executives at the state Department of Education — Superintendent Kathryn Matayoshi and Deputy Superintendent Ronn Nozoe. We were impressed with their vision for public education in Hawaii, their thoughts about handling a huge bureaucracy, and their business and academic credentials. Both have been in their jobs less than three years. A lawyer, Matayoshi knows her away around C suites and board rooms. She once headed the Hawaii Business Roundtable, an organization of top executives from the state’s largest companies. She also has state and local government experience. An academic, Nozoe knows the classroom as a teacher and the bureaucracy that is DOE as an administrator. He at one time oversaw

27 schools in the DOE’s 288-school system. The word “akamai” comes to mind in describing him. We were impressed with their focus on the teacher-student relationship as the key to success. They are setting high standards, recognizing that stopping with a high school education is no longer sufficient for students entering today’s work force. And they refuse to accept the notion that public education will always be inferior to the pricey private schools. At least at the top, the Department of Education appears to have a culture that embraces change. And change is the word of the day for Hawaii as it enters a period of growth. Kakaako presents a rare opportunity to take public education in a new and exciting direction. It has two major landowners — Kamehameha Schools and the Howard Hughes Corp. — both with visions of a residentialcommercial community. Nearby are two big educational complexes — the University of Hawaii John A. Burns

School of Medicine and the UH Cancer Center. The new rail line is slated to go through the heart of Kakaako, bringing it within easy reach of Central and West Oahu. And, it is in walking distance of Honolulu’s business center. Sounds like the ideal place for a magnet school that could offer cuttingedge educational opportunities that would rival the best private schools. For example, a school focused on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education could draw students from across the island and tie the curriculum to nearby resources. It’s one thought. The best minds in business, education and government no doubt have others. The point is that our public education system should be a part of every discussion on how we develop our communities. We have an opportunity to turn a building boom into an educational bonanza. It will require coordination, collaboration and new ways of thinking about how we educate our keiki. But, it can be done.

Pace of change makes ‘get-a-horse’ mentality obsolete had a rare opportunity to tune in to something other than cartoons on our Netflix account over the weekend. I know I’m late to the party, but I was instantly sucked in by “House of Cards.” The series resonates on many levels for me, as a member of the media, just as the 14 Emmy nominations the Internet company snagged last week is resonating with television and cable executives. What resonates with me are the changes portrayed on the screen — whether it’s coming through the Internet-connected Blu-ray player to the television, or on my iPad or iPhone — to newsrooms, newspapers and journalists. What resonates for Hollywood is that a company that used to be known for mailing DVDs of movies in little red envelopes and is now virtually a bottomless repository for on-demand streaming on the web is now invading its turf for programming. For those of you who are even later to the party than I was, “House of Cards” is a Washington drama about a ruthless congressman and a young reporter at the fictitious “Washington Herald” whose colleagues sneer at blogging and tweeting stories and, generally, at her youth. She responds by telling one of them that he’s stuck in the 20th century. Ouch. When she starts breaking big stories, her editors gladly place them on Page One and reap the readership. But when she starts talking on television interviews about the paper not being competitive enough in its digital product, those same editors try to rein her in. When one editor is chastised by the paper’s owner — a Katharine Graham facsimile — for his treatment of the young reporter, he responds by telling her that he does not agree with the changes going on at the newspaper. She responds by handing him a resignation letter for his signature.

I

I’d like to think that these portrayals are hyberbole for what’s going on in the news business. But the fact is that things are changing in the business world at a much faster clip today. JANIS L. The Great Recession MAGIN MANAGING EDITOR’S brought about some of that change, driving NOTEBOOK some companies into early obsolescence. Take Hoku Corp., which filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation earlier this month after betting the farm on an unfinished polysilicon plant in Idaho that would have never been able to compete with other global sources of the product — a key ingredient in solar panels. While some of us may find it’s hard to keep up, it’s imperative we shake off the last century’s thinking — those millennial parties are now 13 years in the rear view mirror, people — and think about how to make the changes happening in the world work for us. We’re working on that here at PBN, as you probably already have noticed if you’ve been reading us for the past

two months. We’re posting all our breaking news online instead of holding some of it for our weekly print edition, which we’re now using for stories that help you know the players better, understand what’s happening and benefit from our exclusive research. You can read more about how your business can keep up with the changes you face in a digital world by going to James Kerr’s column on Page 14, and learn more about leveraging digital strategies at PBN’s breakfast seminar in two weeks. See the ad on Page 31 for more information. People were dealing with the same kind of rapid changes, and thinking, a hundred years ago, when the world was making the transition from a horse-drawn age to a motor-driven age. I’m reminded of Booth Tarkington’s 1918 novel, “The Magnificent Ambersons,” which tells the story of a wealthy family’s decline at the beginning of the 20th Century, punctuated by a spoiled grandson’s refusal to accept the growth and changes happening to the town around his family’s mansion as it grew into a city. He couldn’t understand why anyone would ride around in a motorized

contraption instead of being driven in a horse-powered carriage, just as the editor in “House of Cards” couldn’t understand why anyone seeking serious news coverage would read it on a smartphone when they could hold his newspaper in their hands. I guess my point there is that change doesn’t have to be an either-or or all-ornothing proposition. Many of PBN’s readers tell us they read our online news every day to keep up with the goings-on in Hawaii business, but relish the chance to kick back with our print edition at the end of the week. Just like viewers of well-produced dramas may watch them on broadcast television, cable, or on Netflix via the Internet. What will happen if “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey walks away with the Emmy for best actor in a drama series, or if Robin Wright, who plays his wife, takes an Emmy home for best actress? Or, heaven forbid, “House of Cards” takes the Emmy for best drama series? You can almost hear Hollywood shout “Get a horse!” jmagin@bizjournals.com | 955-8041 | twitter.com/pbndigital | google+ | linkedin.com
