Honolulu’s entrepreneurial scene is looking brighter, thanks to the latest batch of Blue Startups graduates. Blue Startups, a local accelerator founded by Tetris mogul Henk Rogers and his daughter Maya in 2012, recently provided mentorships and up to $100,000 to eight companies over 14 weeks to develop their business models, marketing strategies and other logistics of a tech company. At a Shark Tank-like showcase, these were among the strongest swimmers:

 

iFirst

A home test for people on blood thinners that can transmit results and instructions between doctors and patients without coming in for an in-office appointment, which can be costly, time consuming or difficult for some. ifirstmedtech.com

 

MailGapp

For people who need a physical address for business but don’t want to use a P.O. box or a home address, companies partnered with MailGapp (like the BoxJelly or ROC, for example) can have a receptionist on hand to accept your mail and send photos of it to you, even open it if you want. mailgapp.com

 

UNUM

An Instagram app that lets you edit and schedule your posts to have more control of your feed. unum.la
