Jamie Dinkelacker
They're my friends  •  Founder, Sunarcher Studios. Co-founder/Engineering Director, Niantic Labs, Google. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Michigan State grad.
Hawaii is a strange place for traditional entrepreneurship due to the combination of the geographic disparity of the islands the the utterly ... slow bureaucracy of the state and county governments (e.g., building permits). Thelma understands this and knows how to work with entrepreneurs and guide them in a way to work with the system when necessary (e.g., for resources) and when to avoid "the system" to move things forward. Hawaii is not an easy place for entrepreneurship and Thelma has been effective at working with different groups across the islands to assist with startups and resource guidance.

Thelma is action and solution oriented. Her analysis of a person's current and future situation and circumstances is extremely helpful in f ... ocusing one's business planning and program modifications for continued success.
Carolyn Gerin
We worked together  •  Co-Founder + Chief Creative Officer, WedTech Summit and Senior Editor Emeritus/Contributor, Destination I Do Magazine.
Thelma is the perfect blend of Silicon Valley + Silicon Maui. She brings sharp execution to an entrepreneurial/innovation division of the Ha ... waii govt and works in Lean/Agile style. She fights like a tigress for the programs and people she believes in and brings together laser execution worms eye view, coupled with long range birds eye view. She's a realist: all about solving problems and creating efficiencies. We share her work style and believe that our efforts in the State of Hawaii will bear more fruit with her expert oversight and tutelage. She advises www.wedtechsummit.com (and associated WedTech brands) and we are lucky to be in her orbit.
