The RISE facility, located next to the Mānoa campus, is an extension of the Pacific Asian Center for Entrepreneurship (PACE). Sandra Fujiyama, PACE Executive Director, and Asia Nunez, PACE Leader, share their excitement to have more space for residents to collaborate and learn from one another. The goal is to foster innovation and creativity, allowing creatives to develop prototypes and make their ideas come alive.
