30 Graduate from Maui Business Planning Course
By Wendy Osher
Thirty students were included in the latest graduating class from the Core Four Business Planning course hosted by Maui Economic Opportunity, the organization announced.
The new graduates are in addition to the 150 students who completed the program last year.
Organization leaders say this has resulted in “numerous new Maui County businesses starting up and jobs being created.”
As part of the course curriculum, MEO representatives say commercial leaders from Maui reviewed business plans produced by students, and offered guidance to individuals.
The Core Four Business Planning program is a 36-hour course on how to write a business plan. This includes compiling information on how to start, operate and grow your own business.
Students received a Certificate of Achievement upon completion during a graduation ceremony that was held on Feb. 25, 2014.
The next six-week Core Four class series will be run from March 11 to April 22, 2014, from 6 to 9 p.m., two days per week.
Introductory classes are scheduled to take place on the following dates and times:
- Tuesday, March 4: 6 to 7 p.m. at the MEO Family Center.
- Thursday, March 6: 6 to 7 p.m. at the MEO Family Center.
- Wednesday, March 5: 12 to 1 p.m. at the Maui County Business Resource Center at the Maui Mall.
