Honolulu Civil Beat

Civil Beat is the largest news outlet dedicated to public affairs reporting about Hawaii. Their focus is on investigative and watchdog journalism, in-depth enterprise reporting, analysis and commentary that gives readers a broad view on issues important to the community.

Moostache's founder Dan Zelikman was fortunate enough to be one of the first Civil Beat team members. His main responsibilities included new media content and the marketing and distribution of their articles. Dan also produced the following video that explains the importance of sites like Civil Beat while shedding light on the people whose hard work behind the scenes make things possible.

While at Civil Beat, Dan learned about the power of a story from journalists and how to grow a startup company from nothing. The lessons he learned from his time there continue to help him shape Moostache Films to this day.
