Entrepreneurship Live with Tamara Butterbaugh

October 4, 4:00pm - 5:30pm
Mānoa Campus, 2404 Maile Way

The Entrepreneurship Live speaker series invites founders and company executives to campus to discuss their entrepreneurial journey with University of Hawaii students. Each event features individuals who educate and inspire students by sharing their real-world challenges and triumphs, and range of emotional experiences in forging a startup.

Tamara and Dylan Butterbaugh are the founders and owners of Manoa Chocolate Hawaii, a bean-to-bar house of craft chocolate set-up like a winery in Kailua. The Butterbaugh's were exposed to craft chocolate at the University of Hawai‘i College of Tropical Agriculture where a friend was studying the crop, theobroma cacao. With a passion for sustainability, forestry, and the vision of a Hawai‘i-based manufacturing industry with global potential, they launched the company in 2010 to process cacao for emerging farmers. With little resources and a lot of determination (such as tricycle and barbecue powered equipment) the company has steadily grown to be in the top ten largest craft chocolate makers in the U.S. In 2019, Manoa Chocolate was recognized as the Hawaii Venture Capital Association’s Consumer Packaged Goods Entrepreneur of the Year.
