Hawaii Tech Exchange

Hilo's Startup Hub

The Hawaii Tech Exchange is a volunteer-operated community organization. We bring together talented individuals and innovative businesses interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics: “STEAM”.

We believe a blend of the Arts (Illustration, Design, Writing) and Technology (Science and Math applied through Engineering) is key to creating economic improvements for Hawaii and ensuring our sustainable future.

Across from the Lyman Museum in Hilo

Most of our events are held at “The Exchange” — a meeting space in downtown Hilo. The Exchange has conference tables, a projection screen, internet and a coffee area.

The Exchange is at the intersection of Haili and Kapiolani Streets, directly across from the Lyman Museum. There is plenty of unmetered street parking available on both Haili and Kapiolani Streets.
