MEO’s Business Development Center is bringing its Core Four Business Planning Class to the Westside of Maui in July.

MEO BDC’s Core Four Business Planning Course is a 27-hour course that focuses on the fundamentals of writing an accurate and informational business plan for a startup or an existing business.

The course will take the entrepreneur through the steps needed to identify and validate that the business has a real chance for success in today’s competitive marketplace. Entrepreneurs are providing real time information on what you need to know to start, operate and grow a successful business in Maui County from current and past small business owners.

BDC’s Core Four Business Planning Class will be held at the University of Hawaiʻi Lahaina Education Center 60 Kenui st, Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6 to 9 p.m. starting July 2 through Aug. 1, 2018. The course fee is $300 and scholarships are available to cover all, or part of the course tuition.

Upon course completion graduation will be held with the soon-to-be entrepreneur’s receiving one-on-one guidance from local commercial bankers from First Hawaiian Bank, Bank of Hawaiʻi, Central Pacific Bank, and Hawaiʻi USA FCU.


The students’ business plans and ideas will be reviewed and discussed with suggestions and guidance for launching a successful business. The graduating students will receive a Certificate of Achievement.


Those interested in registration or learning more about the Core Four entrepreneurial training course on the “West Side” can call Maui Economic Opportunity, Inc. Business Development Center, at 249-2990.

Funding from the County of Maui Mayor’s Office of Economic Development and USDA helps to make the Core Four Business Planning Classes possible.
