We are on a mission to elevate Hawaii’s role as a national defense asset in the Pacific. Hawaii’s strategic importance to national defense and the impacts of defense spending on the local economy are symbiotically linked. The stronger the defense sector, the more Hawaii can contribute to security in the Pacific Rim.
Pacific Impact Zone is founded by seasoned professionals in the defense and dual use industry spanning non-profit, enterprise, and entrepreneurial backgrounds.
Our contribution is focused on building and delivering strategic assets to address systemic barriers, thereby maximizing the ability of the local dual use sector to not only develop, but successfully transition their innovations into the hands of the armed service men and women who are protecting our nation.
As a 501(c)(3) member of the community, Pacific Impact Zone is chartered to develop the long term economic resiliency of the defense dual use sector. To accomplish this, our strategy follows a continual economic refresh model to develop assets that de-risk innovation, empowering the dual use sector to scale faster, grow wages and reward entrepreneurship risk taking, and partner with the dual use sector to share the rewards to enable a follow-on "virtuous cycle" of growth. The majority of our programs and services focus on local workforce development and economic development.
