The Young Business Roundtable (YBR)  was created to form a strong interactive and influential community among young professionals in Honolulu, and to assist members in excelling in their respective professions and careers.  The YBR aims to provide and share opportunities for young professionals to network, to participate in and affect business-related issues, and to gain professional development experiences.

We have produced many successful events with many in partnership with Hawaii Business Magazine.
