Business inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes, say entrepreneurs Evan, 33, and Kari Leong, 32.

The couple’s life changed in 2001, when they discovered a sweet tea drink with small, textured tapioca balls in the bottom. Kari estimates that they were spending a small fortune, at least $4 per drink several times a day, at their favorite tea shop.

“When we asked the owners how to make the drink they started speaking to us in Chinese,” Kari says. Unable to understand the shop owners, curiosity fueled the Leong’s idea to start their own Bubble Tea Supply business.

  Good to go - Greater Good Radio challenges Hawaii’s business leaders to take public service seriously

Filed under: Press — admin - July 25, 2006 @ 3:42 pm

Star Bulletin July 24, 2006
By Katherine Nichols

Evan Leong and his wife, Kari, use Greater Good Radio to promote the concept of community service among top entrepreneurs.

Community service was an important part of Evan Leong’s life as a youngster. “It was called detention,” he laughed.

But Leong, 33, has come a long way.

Now he and his wife, Kari, 32, are nearly one year into their multifaceted media venture, gaining attention worldwide as Greater Good Radio. They interview Hawaii’s top business people in an effort to “develop tomorrow’s leaders.” Leong hopes that candid discussions with Hawaii’s most successful entrepreneurs “who have successfully incorporated a social mission into their business model” will inspire the next generation to give back to the community within the framework of their professional endeavors.

DANNY LUI - Chairman of Authosis Ventures

Entrepreneur and venture capitalist, Danny Lui, came from a working class family in Hong Kong—but despite their economic situation, Danny never ran short of dreaming of a brighter tomorrow. And all his vision came to reality because of his strive to learn and know more about his passion, computers.

In the late 70s he graduated from a London university with a degree in Computer Science. He then worked for a London-based firm building software applications for other companies. Danny went back to Hong Kong in 1982 and started Daw Computer Systems, Ltd. In 1987, he teamed up with China Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Computing and founded Lenovo, which in December 2004 acquired the PC Division of IBM for $1.7 billion.

  BRIAN SCHATZ - Hawaii State House of Representatives, CEO of Helping Hands Hawaii

BRIAN SCHATZ - Hawaii State House of Representatives, CEO of Helping Hands Hawaii

Brian Schatz’s community involvement is spread too far but not too thin. His public service targets all walks of life, from disadvantaged youth to ailing senior citizens; and different sectors, from education to the environment—all this made possible by the myriad of programs that his $6 million organization, Helping Hands, implements annually.

Schatz considers his political involvement as an extension of his public service and not-for-profit commitment. He had begun his non-profit work through the Youth for Environmental Service years prior to joining politics as a member of the House of Representatives in 1998.

  DUNCAN MacNAUGHTON - Chairman of The MacNaughton Group, Board of Trustees of Hawaii Preparatory Academy, Punahou School, La Pietra School for Girls, and The Nature Conservancy of Hawaii    ***** (5.0)

DUNCAN MacNAUGHTON - Chairman of The MacNaughton Group, Board of Trustees of Hawaii Preparatory Academy, Punahou School, La Pietra School for Girls, and The Nature Conservancy of Hawaii

Duncan MacNaughton’s understanding of the real estate business is extensive—exemplified by the number of his big-named projects in the State. Now his company’s name is attached in the development of such retail brands as Starbucks, Blockbuster and P.F. Chang in Hawaii. Duncan MacNaughton’s current success stems from his modest beginnings as a Dillingham Corporation employee in the late 60s.

The MacNaughton Group specializes in commercial and residential developments, and has grown in to the retail sector. Costco became The MacNaughton Group’s first big deal that they brought from the mainland. His latest are the co-developments of Capitol Place, a 394-unit residential condominium in downtown Honolulu; and Kapolei Commons, a regional “lifestyle” open-air mall in Kapolei to be opened in 2007.
