Hawaii’s Coolest Companies

President Obama launched the TechHire initiative in 2015. The multi-sector initiative was created to empower Americans with the skills they need through community colleges, and nontraditional approaches such as bootcamps that offer accelerated tech training. HTDC is leading a statewide coalition that aims to train 175 high-tech local workers by the end of 2017 and 400 by the end of 2019.
