It is Tony Marzi, the kind of Camaaina who Hawaii's CEOs and local church directors are hoping to get home. A 32-year-old, he was raised on Hawaii Island, studied computer sciences at UH Hilo, established a co-working room named Hawaii TechWorks, once ran for a government agency and now has almost a ten-year career in high technology.
"There are many good men who have made it to Hawaii. However, if your gifted employees have to make a trade-off between pay and where they are based, you will loose a good many more.

Hawaii has had a net demographic decline of 30,000 inhabitants since 2010 because the number of displaced persons is greater than the number of persons who move to the state.

It is often a ritual of transition for those who are able to pay for it to send tertiary students to the continent.
In spite of everyone's best plans to come home after a few years, the selection often sets young grown-ups on a road from which a repatriation is unlikely. In order to counteract this, teachers are becoming more and more actively involved in the fight against the embarrassment of state higher learning. It has been confirmed for generation after generation that in order to have a good learning environment, you have to go somewhere else," says Joel Weaver, Executive Vice President of the Hawaii English Language Program at UH Manoa.
Weaver is the chairman of the Hawaii Education Consortium, promoting Hawaii as an education goal for foreigners. However, he finds that it is mostly the native pupils and their families who do not know how good many state programmes are in national and global comparison. Such as UH Manoa's Shidler College of Shidler is the number 17 in the world.
"It' driving us nuts when you want to go to less highly rated as Shidler in order to go to higher education, just because you think everything on the continent is better," says Susan Yamada, Principal of the University of Hawaii Ventures. "Yet the continental college kids want to come to UH because they have learned how good our programmes are.
"I' d like to urge the folks at the camp to take a close look at UH. Oceanography, space, technology, economics, medical science, tropic farming - we are leaders in many areas," says Yamada.

Sultan says that since 2012, when concentrated effort began to promote Hawaii as a "Startup Paradise", the number of start-ups in which Hawaii's catalysts have been investing has risen from 18 to almost 150. Sultan thinks this burgeoning start-up eco-system will bring back talents to Hawaii. "We' re trying to encourage people who have gone to the continent and made a career to return to Hawaii.

"We are dealing with the key problem of brains drainage.
We' re trying to recruit youngsters looking for the kind of job that will attract the millennials," Toyama says. Titching customers locally is a challenging task, as these businesses are usually more traditional, less technology-driven and may not realize the value of individual music. Customers on the shore come onboard more easily and usually spend at least three time more.
Nevertheless, Toyama says, they are committed to expanding their businesses to serve state-owned enterprises. "It' important to do this because it is about creating Hawaii's technology world.

Whilst the start-up community is expected to provide the kind of employment for which the Millennials will be returning to Hawaii, there are also IT vacancies here.

When you can provide an enviroment that allows them to see beyond school and to do it here in Hawaii, it will mean that although most continental scholars will go to university, they will have a loving memory of the development processes back in Hawaii.
If so, they can sense they can learn something about the outside of Hawaii, know that all these things have begun in Hawaii and that they will be happy when they return," says Turnbull. Mr Kahunahana acknowledges that the issue of skills migration is not just about the number of available workstations. Rather, he sees the long-term response in giving individuals the capacity and trust to seize their own opportunity, no matter where they are.
We asked about the braindrain in the current study conducted by the German Federal Office of Economic Research (BOSS) among top entrepreneurs: What has been happening in recent years with the expulsion of many of Hawaii's best and smartest individuals to the continent and beyond?
