The directory is a database of native Hawaiian owned businesses, people and support organizations located throughout the State of Hawai`i, the United States and beyond. The primary function is to allow markets and businesses to find each other quickly thereby avoiding the often tedious review of search engine results. In addition, and if the proper terms can be found in the descriptive text of each business listing, the directory allows for locating products and services offered.
Locating native Hawaiian businesses on the internet can be a daunting task. This directory was developed in order to minimize the efforts by helping to point the way. It's also important to recognize that many businesses do not have a presence on the web - but many may have a listing here. We are learning that customers are finding products and services. Businesses are also finding each other and collaboration and partnerships are being developed. This should be encouraging news and a great incentive for any native Hawaiian owned business to get listed and be found.
The directory will help you find the business, products and services, if available. Once found, the listing will provide the contact information, ie., phone, cell, fax, email and/or website links.
