A Partnership
With Pace

The unique components of RISE are made possible by the Pacific Asian Center for Entrepreneurship (PACE) at UH Mānoa. All UH students—not just RISE residents— will have access to its co-working spaces, meeting rooms, makerspaces, and entrepreneurship programs dedicated to nurturing creativity and innovation. PACE is the central unit that coordinates and offers entrepreneurship events, competitions, mentorship programs, and scholarship opportunities to students at all campuses of the University of Hawai’i System.
