Suzanne Savet & Holger Heine

Suzanne Savet and Holger Heine started Topos Productions in San Francisco, California as a corporate event and website design business over 15 years ago. (Topos is a classical Greek word meaning place, location and opportunity). With the advancement of technology, Topos has evolved into a full-service digital media business delivering quality websites, apps and e-books.

“Within a week of relocating from the mainland last November, we found the comfortable, co-working space of ProtoHUB Honolulu and are delighted with the welcoming staff, community events, shared networks and ideal support provided for our business and client needs,” Suzanne notes.

“Suzanne and I are grateful to Shanah and George and the ProtoHUB team for their continued work, dedication and energy in building and growing the HUB’s engaging environment,” Holger says. “And, we look forward to moving into Impact HUB Honolulu’s new space and helping the local community with digital solutions.”
