Social Enterprise

A global community of impact investors has launched an unprecedented transformation of the global financial ecosystem to catalyze positive social and environmental impact.  Unsustainable practices and systems are being disrupted by small social enterprises who have developed altruistic business models to enhance the environment, strengthen communities and generate economic benefits.

Hoʻokele Strategies has partnered with KL Felicitas Foundation to form Hawaiʻi Investment Ready (HIR) as part of an effort to build enterprise capacity, increase impact investment funding and catapult these islands into a leadership role of this global movement.

The following are programs that showcase the power of this emerging sector of commercial enterprise.
