Meaning “excellence” in Hawaiian, pono is more than just a word – it is a way of life.

For over 15 years, the founders of Pono Corporation hung a placard of Excellence in the lobby of every one of their businesses: it reads “Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise, risking more than others think is safe, dreaming more than others think is practical, and expecting more than others think is possible”. This is the mantra to which we build Pono and work to make a difference in the world.
