We did it! And we couldn’t have done it without you!
MAHALO to all 400 registrants that helped us pull off our very first (and hopefully last) virtual East Meets West 2021. Because of you, we were able to raise $10,600 for the Hawaii Food Bank.
EMW ’21 gave us so many gems from all of our moderators, opening panels, closing fireside chats, and guest VCs.
We can’t wait to see you next year!
