Mar 16, 2015, 14:00 ET from Real Office Centers

OAHU, Hawaii, March 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- This week ROC (Real Office Centers) is officially opening ROC Chinatown on the island of Oahu, their newest location and arguably most anticipated passion project to date. This labor of love launch has finally been achieved with the ardent mutual support and partnership of leading community members and entities which have all played a critical role in facilitating the fruition of the entrepreneurial eco-system now pivoting around ROC's newest location, in the heart of Chinatown.

"The establishment of ROC Chinatown provides our StartUp Paradise with a new node in building our creative and innovation sectors." –Georja Skinner, CO, Creative Industries DBEDT

"Having a collaborative center like ROC in the heart of Chinatown will foster the entrepreneurial spirit that the community has been built on. Meaningful discussion and critique that spaces such as this one encourage are at the heart of innovation and push individuals to strive to better themselves, and therefore the communities in which they live, work and play." Lisa Yamada, Partner at Nella Media Group

Completed with the support of Hawaii's Department of Business, Economic Development &Tourism (DBEDT). The Nella Media Group, and Hawaii Venture Capital Association (HVCA) an invitation only official launch party will be held at the new location on Thursday, March 19th which will also be sponsored in part by Ocean Vodka and Kona Brewing.  Boasting an open and expansive 8,000 square feet, the newest ROC location accommodates 21 private offices, ample co-working, conference, meeting and event space along with the customary amenities provided at each of the prestigious ROC locations (common kitchen area, guest reception, high-speed internet and technical support) but ROC Chinatown has restaurant space to be occupied in the near future.

"A collaborative work environment in the heart of Chinatown and a few blocks from downtown will be a key addition to the startup and entrepreneurial community on Oahu. They are a strong West Coast brand and have an extensive national partner network that will provide great additional resources to our growing innovation sector." Meli James, President of HVCA

"Hawaii is no different than other markets we have entered, all the crucial pieces exist, entrepreneurs, incubation, acceleration, capital, technology development, motivation to push the technology both privately and publicly, and the desire to educate, there just needs to be a cohesive gathering of the fragmented pieces under one consistently fostering roof." Ron McElroy, CEO and Founder of ROC
