More Local Ventures, Hawaiiâ€™s hit business show, moves to prime time on KFVE, Sundays every week at 6:30pm beginning June 26, 2011. More Local Ventures profiles local businesses and entrepreneurs who are transforming Hawaii in extraordinary ways.
“Like many local companies we support and encourage green & sustainable efforts,â€ states Edgy Lee, the Executive Producer of More Local Ventures. â€œBecause we’re in media, to us this means supporting local businesses of all kinds so the concept of this series is really about featuring people who are preserving the beauty of our local lifestyle and folks who are pressing the envelope and finding innovative solutions in this changing economy.â€
From high technology and biotech startups to third generation mom and pop shops, restaurants, boutique organic farms, non-profit organizations, and green companies. Businesses that succeed in the current economy do so in a market that resembles no other.
â€œKFVE is excited that More Local Ventures moving to prime time on KFVE,â€ says Jon Fink, General Manager for KFVE the Home Team. â€œHawaii viewers love to see positive, hard-working local men and women trying to make their way in the world. KFVE is proud to work with producers like Pacific Network that produces quality and interesting local television programming for Hawaii viewers.â€
More Local Ventures will also be simulcast on the web at pacificnetwork.tv where viewers are invited to interact and comment using a variety of social media platforms. Linking Hawaiian communities around the world, Pacific Network is an internet television portal streaming free to the world — island sports, travel, family, arts, culture, entertainment and more.
“It is important for us to see with our own eyes that the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in Hawaii today, just as it was decades ago, when times were even tougher,â€ states Jeff Au, More Local Ventures Executive Producer. â€œOur parents and grandparents built our community and quality of life on Local Ventures, and we hope to inspire current and future generations to do the same to perpetuate this important legacy.”
