I asked Traven Watase, CEO of Scholar’s App and new SF resident, to come along with us. He moved from Hawaii to SF about a week ago. Kudos to Traven for making the leap!

At each HCCNC event, time is allotted for the Wiki wiki session, where guests and members can share updates with the audience. By way of raising my hand and pointing at him, I recommended Traven get up there and tell everyone what he does =)

About HCCNC

Hawaii Chamber of Commerce of Norcal - Paubox

The Hawaii Chamber of Commerce of Northern California (HCCNC) was officially organized in 1999 as a California mutual benefit nonprofit corporation. It was formed as a result of discussions and meetings among its three founders.

The founders realized that a unique synergy existed among their acquaintances who either were from Hawaii or spent time there. The common bonds were around trust, good humor and a genuine desire to help one another. They concluded these bonds are a business asset that should be leveraged. Thus the motto, “Aloha is our business!”
