Purple Maiʻa is Uplifting New Native Hawaiian-Owned Businesses

Purple Maiʻa’s goal is to build an innovation and technology ecosystem in Hawaiʻi that’s locally grown and based in Hawaiian culture. Their hope is to stand as a world class Hawaiian institution that sets the standard for excellence in education, innovation, and entrepreneurship in service of land and people.

Purple Maiʻa Foundation is a technology education nonprofit that was founded in 2013. Its programs started with a single afterschool technology class at Jarrett Middle School that taught Native Hawaiian and local kids to code. Since then, the organization has grown to work with hundreds of learners annually in three distinct programs: Youth Education (Kaikaina), Entrepreneurship (Mālama Design Studios), and Workforce Development and Training (Hiapo).

The Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) recently awarded a pair of community grants to Purple Maiʻa, joining a host of major funders that support their work including Kamehameha Schools, the U.S. Department of Education’s Native Hawaiian Education Program, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Castle Foundation, Kosasa Foundation, Stupski Foundation, Nakapuna Foundation, and many others.
