Hawai‘i Capital Scan

Hawai‘i Capital Scan

The Hawaiʻi Capital Scan (HCS) project will provide a map of government, private sector and philanthropic capital in Hawaiʻi. HCS analyzes the efficacy of public, private and philanthropic capital investment drivers through a product lens. The report will illuminate the unique narratives Hawaiʻi capital movement is creating, the thought leadership emerging across sectors, the blended capital opportunities, and noteworthy funding and data gaps. The inaugural mapping is focusing on Hawaiʻi’s Food Systems and you can read Part 1 below.

The results will help us better align capital to grow our local food system and provide a powerful tool for Hawaiʻi in its economic recovery from the impacts of COVID-19. And we believe the framework and analysis is one that other sectors will want and need to navigate in this new, uncertain economy.
