Thirteen students were included in the latest graduating class from Maui Economic Opportunity’s Core Four Business Planning course on June 16, 2014, the organization announced.

The class is part of MEO’s Business Development Program, and is designed for future entrepreneurs who receive guidance in writing a viable business plan through the course.

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, and participated in a congratulatory dinner.
